Crazy Creek, a tributary of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River, is formed from a string of lakes that includes Fox Lake, Widewater Lake, Big Moose Lake, and Ivy Lake. Crazy Creek Falls, located near the confluence with the Clarks Fork, is a short 1 5-minute hike, but it is hard not to spend a few hours here. The falls is a massive cascade, plunging over slabs of granite rock. Along the edge of the thunderous cascade are flat, terraced rocks for sunbathing or exploring. Beside the cascades and waterfalls are cold soaking pools and even a bubble-filled “jacuzzi.” This natural water park is a favorite spot for those who know about it. The hike follows the first section of the Crazy Lakes Trail, a pack route to Ivy Lake and Crazy Mountain.
