An easy day hike to a gorgeous forested lake. This trailhead is slightly harder to locate than most others in the Beartooths, but this hasn’t lessened its popularity. The area has much to offer, and it receives heavy use both by locals and those who travel from afar for a chance to experience this spectacular wild area.
The trailhead lies on the eastern fringe of the section of the Beartooths that has been extensively mined, logged, and roaded. Even in the 2 miles of gravel road to the trailhead, the contrast between this area and the pristine wilderness is clearly evident. You can camp at the undeveloped campground at the trailhead to get an earlier start.
