This was a nice out and back after setting our tent up in Two Medicine camp. Great views of the lakes and peaks in this area. Take the side trip to Twin Falls along the way, it is worth the stop. A must trail for anyone staying in the camp.

This is a good beginner hike, or a hike for those who are tired and just want to see some more views. We took this hike on our first day just to get a feel for the area. It's a good leisure hike and the lake is quite beautiful.
