Lake Louise Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Located 14 miles southeast of Dubois, in the northeast section of the Wind River Range. A shorter day hike to a pretty, serene, cliff-encompassed lake. Overnight camping is an enjoyable option. This little hike often serves as a primer to the long Glacier Trail/Gannett Peak hike (Hike 39). It allows folks to test their boots or firm their muscles a bit before undertaking a rather colossal mountain trail. But Lake Louise also affords a great introduction to and escape into the rocky northern-most corner of the Wind Rivers. Short doesn’t necessarily mean easy. The first 0.4 mile of trail switchbacks steeply uphill. Here the Whiskey Mountain Trail branches to the northwest."

"A shorter day hike to pretty and serene, cliff-encompassed Lake Louise (8,600 feet). Overnight camping is an enjoyable option. The lake offers excellent fishing in a deep lake. A hot fire charred the valley above this lake in 1976, and the natural forest regeneration is interesting to witness. The hike is located approximately 14 miles southeast of Dubois, in the northeast section of the Wind River Range."
