"A moderate day hike or overnighter through a wildlife-rich area and exciting ford. For an intermediate overnighter to a Yellowstone lake, this hike is hard to beat. In June and July Wrangler Lake doubles as a mosquito-breeding haven, so I recommend a late-season trip. Also, getting to Wrangler Lake involves fording Sour Creek, which in June can be a precarious waist-deep adventure. From the trailhead take the left-hand trail past the trailhead sign. The path passes a couple trees then rises up on a rolling prairie with many bison in sight in this part of the Hayden Valley. In 0.5 mile you come to the junction with the cutoff trail to Clear Lake. Stay right (east) and continue through the buffalo prairie." Read more
