A day hike or overnighter to a basin with three lakes and views of the Missouri River Valley. These high mountain lakes offer scenery, solitude, and the simple joy of a good hike. As a bonus, you might be the only hikers on this trail. For wildflower lovers, the entire route puts on a good show-lots of lupine, arnica, paintbrush, and larkspur, but also lots of more rare flowers like mountain health, princess pine, mountain bluebells, and trapper's tea.
