Fantastic hike. Very steep but rewarded with magnificent alpine beauty.

We hiked this trail on an overcast, rainy day. The first bit of the trail is steep and rocky and there is an initial creek crossing. As hikers, this took some maneuvering, but if you're in a jeep, no worries. There are spots to camp along the road and by the lake.

In my opinion: The views of the surrounding mountains aren't as splendid from this lake as they are from others nearby (Pomeroy, Billings, etc.) because it is much lower in elevation. Still worth a visit.
