This trail provides a nice and easy hike with breathtaking views! Caught some nice cutthroat trout in Riddle Lake as a bonus! Highly recommend this trail. Don't forget your bear spray as this is a bear management area through mid-July.

Very lovely little lake, with pond lilies on it. The riddle is what side of the Continental Divide the lake is on. The answer to the riddle is Solution Creek, which flows north into Yellowstone Lake, which is on the Atlantic side of the Divide, even though the trailhead is on the Pacific side of the Divide.
