Hardpan Lake Professional Review and Guide
"The trail ascends through lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir, and aspen and forks within 0.5 mile. The trail is wide and easy to follow as it climbs continuously. At 2 miles, the trees thin out and the canopy becomes mostly whitebark pine and subalpine fir. You get spectacular views of the peaks of the North Absaroka Wilderness, as well as the mighty ramparts of Wapiti Ridge. In July the wildflower display is truly extraordinary. Highlights: Spectacular views; wildlife viewing access to Wapiti Ridge, one of the largest and most striking escarpments in the Yellowstone ecosystem."
