Cook Lake / Cliff Swallow Trails Professional Review and Guide
"A level lakeshore hike and a longer, moderately difficult path for those interested in natural history. The Cook Lake Trail is self-explanatory, following a level route around the shore of Cook Lake.The lake is stocked with brown and rainbow trout; anglers will need a Wyoming fishing license. The Cliff Swallow Trail is intended for recreational hikers with an interest in natural history. If hikers take the loop hike going counterclockwise, the trail begins by paralleling Beaver Creek. Bur oak, aspen, and birch line the trail, while bluffs filled with cliff-swallow nesting holes rise on the east side of the stream."
