Went to Gardner Lake as part of the Beartooth Recreation Loop. The terrain is very stark — very windy and cold (37*) on 8/23/2018. Amazing country so high in the mountains, unlike anyplace else I’ve been. Worth the trip but be prepared for the temps and the long slog back up.

This was a great hike. I would guess based on three distance trackers this is more between 5.5-6 miles. There are two steep dissents and climbs back out. We had a great time fishing as well. But take a lot of bug spray with you. The mosquitos about carried us off.

Me and my Dad did this trail when we visited the area a few years ago. Very beautiful and worth the time.

Just went down to Gardner lake. Great fishing! Just little guys but very catchable!

Almost a five star hike, but trail was hard to follow because of recent snowfall. Beautiful iced over lake. We made it as close as we could! The tundra was flowering and beautiful as usual.

We tried to hike this trail but 2miles before reaching the trail the road was closed due to snow drift. The locals (Top of The World employees) told us that happens most of the time (summer included). Therefore this trail is rarely accessible.
