Grizzly Lake: Gros Ventre Wilderness Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Grizzly Lake sits in the northern foothills of the Gros Ventre Range. The oval-shaped lake is located just south of the Gros Ventre River and north of the Gros Ventre Mountains. The scenic lake, formed by an ancient landslide on the northern slope of the Gros Ventres, is tucked in a broad depression at 7,1 84 feet in elevation.
The lake is surrounded by rolling, tree-dotted hills and grassy meadows. The hike crosses the glacial moraines through a mix of open sagebrush, grassy meadows, conifer forests, and aspen groves. Throughout most of the hike are vistas of the colorful Red Hills and Lavender Hills that lie across the river valley. En route to Grizzly Lake, the trail crosses several tributary streams of the Gros Ventre River and a water ditch."
