A fairly easy day trip to a fish-filled mountain lake. Many people who know the Beartooths say the East Rose-bud is the most scenic valley of all. It’s filled with lakes and waterfalls that would be major tourism attractions anywhere else. Here, there are so many that most don’t even have names. The cutthroat-filled lakes bring a smile to any angler’s face, and climbers love the place because of the endless array of rock faces. Adding even more use to the area is the small community of summer homes called Alpine right at the trailhead.
