Oh my a must see, the lake is beautiful! Approx 7 mile slow drive, some bumpy areas. Only .5 mile hike to lake. Amazing views.
What can I say about this trail? Its waters are pure and still, allowing the snow-covered peaks of the Bridger Range to reflect off its surface. The woods surrounding the lake are varied and beautiful. The trail itself is as easy as can be. Come in the evening to see the colors of the sunset reflected in the water. Or make it the first stop of the day on your way up to one of the nearby peaks (Hardscrabble, Sacagawea and Naya Nuki Peaks are all close by and accessible from the Bridger Mountains NRT, which begins at the campground). The drive really is the most difficult part of accessing this scenic area, and though it's bumpy, it's not bad, either. Make sure to leave plenty of time for your walk around the shoreline as the views are fantastic from every angle. All in all, it's a fantastic place to experience perfect mountain scenery without a lot of effort.
