Island Lake Professional Review and Guide

"So much to see and do, all within reach of base camp at Island Lake. The West Rosebud Trailhead seems to have one disadvantage — or advantage, depending on your point of view. It’s mostly suited for “just passing through.” Most trips from this trailhead offer either day hikes or trips that pass through the West Rosebud for other destinations, such as Granite Peak. Island Lake, however, affords a great chance to stay a few days and enjoy the many wonders of the Upper West Rosebud valley. It’s especially suited for hikers who like to base camp."
