HikingGreat!

Great trail. Steady uphill but not steep. No overgrowth. Paradise Lake is gorgeous. Bluebird Lake is magnificent. More people on trail and at Bluebird than I would’ve thought, we saw 8 other groups.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike. The elevation gain starts right away. Plenty of spots to stop along the way to get pictures. The trail is well maintained and no bugs in late August. The lake is small enough to walk around and find a spot to sit. The hike down went super fast.

The trail starts off as a double track that eventually turns into a single track that meanders along a stream as you go up. Lots of mosquitoes out so bring your repellent. The views from the top are amazing! As we were driving in a black bear crossed the road about 100 yards away from the trailhead. If you have a low clearance vehicle I recommend coming in via North Fork rd. We came in via North Fork rd and tried to leave in the direction of Fortine and turned around after a few miles because the road was very rocky, rutted, potholed, and slow going for my 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX.

Some of the best hiking in MT outside of GNP! Very alpine, ridges, steeps and lakes with many year around streams/creeks and an excellent trail system all for free. Abutting the 49th parallel, this area offers lots of wildlife, back-country cabins and huge unspoiled wilderness. Can't say enough of this area....but one thing I will remind is to pack out more than you pack in and carry bear spray as you will probably encounter moose multiple times as well as both bear species....really a wild country! Enjoy responsibly!
