Beauty Lake is a gorgeous high mountain lake that sits in a bowl of forested rock cliffs. Scenic mountains, sloping alpine meadows, pockets of evergreens, and several sandy beaches surround the sinuous 90-acre lake. Crane Lake is a smaller 1 0-acre lake surrounded by forest that is fed by Beauty Lake. The hike begins at Island Lake just below the Beartooth Plateau. This trail can be combined with Hike 47 for a 5-mile shuttle hike to Beartooth Lake.
