Cooke City / Kersey Lake / Rock Island Lake is a 10 mile out and back trail located near Cooke City, MT. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for snowshoeing.
I have both hiked and horseback ridden this trail. Rock Island has great fishing and is also a great spot to see pikas! Along Kersey meadow a new bridge was put in two years ago making crossing even better now. Really beautiful views of Kersey lake, Rock Island lake, and the river at the trail head on this hike. Perfect day trip for fishing if you get an early start. Skyline Guest Ranch does a straight ride there and back and a fishing trip up to Rock Island.
Good fishing and views
