Classic.. A must if you're in the area. The road up to the trail head gets rough but I've driven it in a small car. The trail is steep but well planned and footing is good the hole way. The views are breath taking and well worth the effort.
One of the best all day hikes ever. The terrain in not overly difficult as the elevation climb increases steadily thus not being a fatiguing hike. It is 9 miles round trip and the reward is one of most beauriful views on earth. In June the lake was still half frozen and the snow at the lake was a welcome treat.
This hike was really fun. It had a very steep elevation change, especially for a beginer like me. The trail is switchbacks most of the way up and then evens out past the tree line. The cool thing is that you can see the awesome view of Glacier Lake and the trail from the Beartooth Highway.
