A day hike or short backpack from Rising Sun Motor Inn to Otokomi Lake. This trail passes up Rose Creek along the Lewis thrust fault to a low-elevation cirque lake among blocky, reddish mountains.The trail begins in the wooded St. Mary Valley and climbs around a hillside to the west to enter the Rose Creek drainage. After hiking along the forested creek valley for 2.5 miles past pools and small waterfalls, you climb onto an open rockslide area from which Goat Mountain is clearly visible across the lake. Just before reaching the lake, the trail passes Otokomi Campground to the left. The trail bends around to the southwest before arriving at the outlet to Otokomi Lake.
