    Matthew Rowe reviewed Gooseberry Falls State Park Trail

    Love this place! Had a great time with my kid here. Be a responsible parent and watch your children. There are some dangerous places a child could end up if not supervised. Well kept trails, and very beautiful scenery. Highly recommend!

    Very beautiful place tucked back in some acres. The trails are nice, expect to see horses. Also, expect to overstep horse manure. There is a nice pavilion to host party's, weddings, etc. Also there is some neat history on the trails, and a graveyard you can hike a steep hill to. Plenty of camp space, and many local areas also to stay.

    Love this place for hiking. Unfortunately, people don't realize how beautiful their parks are, or never visit them.

    Being local, we use this trail quite frequently for just going on nice walks. There are many places to stop and rest, and some little shelter cabin type buildings to take shelter in if you are lucky enough to be near one if weather turns. Trail is maintained well. May see all kinds of wildlife and livestock. No predator animals to be weary of. This is not Grizzly country, and black bears are Extremely rare, but are spotted once in a blue moon. Highly recommend. Lanesboro has many places to visit also, everybody is friendly. Also do the trail to Rushford from Lanesboro. Old Barn Resort is a nice place to stop to eat on the trail.

    We left "The Dead Indian Creek Trail", and stayed overnight in Cooke City. We then started on the Cooke City side. Parking was plenty. There is zero parking cost, part they are not responsible for any damage or theft to your vehicle. There is a picnic area here, along with a toilet. Beautiful waterfall, and neat history if you just wanted to see a roadside stop. We backpacked to Rock Island lake. Our campground was gorgeous, along with the view. It was not a bad jaunt, if you are looking for a quick place for experience. We had a huge moose walk passed our hammocks at about 3:00 a.m. The stomps were amazing, on top of waking up scared as hell knowing there was that huge animal passing by. We woke up to see him still in the lake splashing. Simply Amazing. I would love to come back and actually do the trail itself. We were told we were making a mistake going this time of year because mosquitos just hatched. THEY WERE NOT LYING. Being from Minnesota, we thought we were used to them. They were unbelievable, although with the proper clothing, never really were bitten. We were also told we would hit a lot of snow....we had a few patches but nothing to really even walk on.

    June 23rd, A friend of mine and I decided to try this trail out. After parking (which was easy), we started our backpacking trip. It was a steep climb for the first half mile or better then it tapers off to a up and down, but nothing to extreme for elevations. We had hardly no mosquitos or any insects really until the evening. Even then, they were not bad. Luckily the forest cleaning crew left there the previous week. I would recommend maybe waiting another week, because we were lucky as far as trails, snow, were concerned. To gather water for drinking is about 2 miles in. Until then, it is in a deep crevasse. We used our Hammocks this trip, and it was perfect. We did not see any bears, but there was bear signs, that they were around. It is Grizzly area, so be smart. We only made it about 5 miles in, and we decided to turn back because the water was too fast for our comfort to cross, knowing that we had 50 pound packs on, and deep enough in to be "in trouble". After we left we made way north, and did a few miles of "The Beaten Path". I would like to come back to this trail and make it to the end and back. Highly recommend for a beginner trail. trail is pretty easy to navigate also.
