"A moderately long but not too challenging backpacking trip through spectacular mountain scenery, especially the view from Sundance Pass. This well-maintained and heavily used trail is not only one of the most scenic in the Beartooths, but it’s only a short drive from the Billings area. You can make this hike a three-day trip, staying one night in the Lake Fork of Rock Creek and another in the West Fork of Rock Creek. Although nicely suited to a three-day/two-night trip, the route also offers many scenic side trips. Plan an extra day or two in the back-country for exploring them. This trail offers absolutely spectacular scenery. From Sundance Pass, for example, vistas include 12,000-foot mountains, such as 12,548-foot Whitetail Peak, and the Beartooth Plateau, a huge mass of contiguous land above 10,000 feet." Read more

Growing up in Montana, it is easy to take for granted the beauty of the Beartooth mountains. Although this trail sees more people than it use to, it was still an amazing experience and the higher up you climb the more solitude you will enjoy. The opportunities to fish were abundant and the fish were plentiful. Coming over Sundance Pass is a spectacular sight that will be difficult to top.
