Wild Bill Lake

Wild Bill Lake Professional Review and Guide

"This is a very easy day hike around a charming little lake. The West Fork of Rock Creek Road (FR 71) actually boasts four separate trailheads, all in close proximity. Three vehicle campgrounds are also found in this area, and the lower valley has several residential developments. Since the road starts right in Red Lodge, the lower valley feels like the town’s backyard wilderness.

The West Fork Road is paved for the first 7 miles up to Basin Creek Campground. This is a heavily used area, both for day trips and extended backcountry excursions. Fortunately, the area offers a wide range of trail choices, and visitors tend to disperse. Trails rarely feel crowded."
