Taylor Peak, 13,153ft, sits on the divide at the back of Loch Vale between Powell and Otis Peak. The peak is not very distinctive except for the presence of Taylor Glacier, which reaches the divide a half mile or so [southeast] of Taylor's summit. Taylor Glacier can be spotted from the Bear Lake parking lot, The Loch, and various other places along the trail into Loch Vale. [Taylor] Peak is the high point to the right of the glacier. The approach to Taylor provides great views of the Cathedral Spires, and the summit has an expansive view, especially to the South.
Park at the Glacier Gorge Junction lot, if it's not full, otherwise Bear Lake. Hike into Loch Vale. Approach via the Sky Pond branch for a climb of Taylor Glacier. This is also the approach to many Cathedral Spires climbs. Taylor can also be approached via the Andrew's Glacier branch, for a walk up Andrew's Glacier. Andrew's makes the easiest [descent].
