Upper and Lower Chain Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Located in the glacial terrain of the Beartooth Plateau, this hike follows a wide but lightly hiked section of the Morrison Jeep Trail through an evergreen forest to open alpine meadows.

The meadows are covered in wildflowers and marbled with streams. Upper and Lower Chain Lakes are actually one large, 80-acre lake with a narrow section through the middle. There are beautiful views, including a panoramic overview of Beartooth Butte."

Great little picnic spot - but did not see as many inviting swimming holes as we thought we would - perhaps the water level was too low. Saw Beaver at the log dam. Stay left when you get up trail a bit.
