Rat Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Bozeman, Montana, is an active, thriving town dating back to he 1880s. It is rich in character, history and landscape. There are eight historical districts, a wide variety of museums, art galleries, musical events, and is home to Montana State University.
Rat Lake is a beautiful lake that deserves a more attractive name. The lake, surrounded by forest, sits at 6,600 feet and is an ideal fishing, picnicking and strolling area with an accessible shoreline.
The hike is short and easy, ideal for children. The beginning of the hike uses the same trail that leads 1,500 feet up to the Garnet Mountain Lookout Tower."
