"This is a moderate day hike or overnighter with options to a seldom-visited lake. The trail wanders through forest partially burned by wild fires, with several stands of Douglas fir and lodgepole pine surviving. The trail is well maintained, with most deadfall cut from the treadway annually. Expect to encounter a few rocky sections, but generally the trail is dry and well marked. The first half of the hike to Mallard Lake is a popular day hike for people staying overnight in the Old Faithful area. But few people camp at the lake, and even fewer people continue hiking along the Mallard Creek Trail. The sandy trail climbs gently and enters a burned lodgepole forest where wildflowers are often abundant during early summer." Read more
