This string of six lakes sits at the eastern base of the Beartooth Plateau in a gorgeous sub-alpine meadow with wildflowers. The hike begins from a short dirt road between Long Lake and Little Bear Lake, but does not follow an actual trail. The route follows Little Bear Creek from lake to lake through open, tree-dotted meadows marbled with small streams and scattered with lichen-covered rocks. Throughout the hike, panoramic views extend across the Beartooth Plateau to the Absaroka Range.
