Otokomi Lake was a gorgeous fall hike starting from the Rising Sun campground on the east side of Glacier National Park. The trail lightly climbs 2000 feet over five miles to the lake with a gorgeous waterfall and pools to swim in roughly halfway there. After the falls there's a good mile or so of hiking through a recent burn while the second half of the trail is littered with huckleberries. And the final mile of the trail walks over talus slopes. There's much to explore at the lake itself.

Awesome waterfalls, tons of windflowers, little traffic, and a great early morning hike!

A moderate hike, very few hikers, beautiful views, a few waterfalls along the way, and a Glacier lake. Perfect for a morning or afternoon hike.

Waterfalls, lots of fish and a great campsite. Easy to moderate hike, we did cross a few small snow fields but nothing dangerous.
