Aster Park Professional Reviews and Guides

"This route combines the early reaches of the Two Medicine Loop with a spur trail that visits a pretty waterfall and then climbs to a high overlook above Two Medicine Lake. The hike begins by climbing gently into subalpine forest south of Two Medicine Lake. At the top of the rise is a trail junction, where a spur path descends to Paradise Point on the lakeshore. The main trail wanders inland, passing stagnant wetlands; open meadows beside the marshes offer outstanding views of Appistoki Peak and Never Laughs Mountain to the south, Sinopah Mountain above the head of the lake, and Rising Wolf Mountain beyond the far shore. A footbridge leads across Aster Creek, and on the far bank is the junction with the Aster Park Trail."

"This popular hike gives you a good idea of the spectacular beauty of the Two Medicine area. This less-crowded part of Glacier Park has abundant wildlife, lush vegetation, and scenic waterways that pass through glacially carved valleys.

Rising Wolf Mountain, Painted Teepee Peak, and Sinopah Mountain surround Two Medicine Lake. You follow Aster Creek and Paradise Creek over flat terrain through forest and marshlands."
