Good trip

Absolutely relaxation. Beautiful walk

Love this trail! Did it last summer with my father as a bonding trip. We ended up running into a bull moose right before misty moon lake. And the next morning we woke up to a moose swimming! The views are wonderful along with the other people if you happen to run into any. :)

Love think hole! Mostly up hill but a wonderful view!

It was a good hike. There was snow and I lost the trail. Eventually crossed a road and down a hill to Bucking Mule Creek. After realizing my mistake, I had to hurry to get to the overlook and back to the parking lot. I saw deer and elk on this walk.

Nice hiking

Good memories.
Easy.

I did this back in August with a group of friends. Cloud Peak does not disappoint! We took 3 days to hike in, summit, and hike out and it felt comfortable. Easy to lose the trail at times due to miles of boulder - hopping when you make the summit push. Gorgeous wildflowers, amazing views! Listen to the weather though, you won't want to be up there when a storm blows through. It does have a narrow section that's not for the faint of heart!

Really hard trail but the views are worth it!

We hiked mid-October and it was a decent hike. Very rocky and not well marked....we missed a turn and went about a mile out of the way. Overall, good trail

Beautiful canyon, easy to follow trail, shady trailhead with pit toilets. Lots of poison oak along the trail, watch out.

A nice walk, even for flatlanders.

The views are spectacular on the trail and with a lot of other trails to join along the way. The trail itself is really rocky from beginning to end and not very clearly marked after the first half a mile.

Beautiful pond and lake, nice rocky trail. Lots of traffic. Not as quiet as we'd hoped, with the two legged as well as four legged kind. Lots of horse poop to dodge while we were there. My son reported the trailhead outhouse was in good condition. I'd go again, but in colder weather hopefully deterring much of the traffic.

Backpacked to this lake and camped before heading to do Cloud Peak the next day. Beautiful lake with lots of trees. We saw several moose both days we were there!

Definitely challenging. The amount of boulder fields makes it slow going, so start early! The views on the way up are breathtaking. We didn't quite summit because of our later start, so I can only imagine that the view at the top is well worth it. We will definitely be giving this one another try!

Views were amazing! Should have brought fishing gear, maybe next time. Saw a moose and lots of birds. Everyone was exhausted at the end - no complaints though, well worth the effort!

The hike itself wasn't anything spectacular, although it was very smokey when I visited (I heard on a clear day you can see out to the Tetons!). However, the Medicine Wheel itself is very interesting. Would recommend.

Amazing views!

My favorite place in the Big Horn Mountains

Took us 3 hours to reach Lost Twin Lakes (2 fit adults, only a few short breaks) And 2 hr 15 minutes to get back. My GPS said 6.25 miles from trailhead to the top. We passed maybe 4 other groups while hiking. Beautiful hike! A few challenging parts. Mostly at the very end. Bring bug spray! Lots of mosquitoes.

The trail to Misty Moon Lake is very busy. We got up there by noon and I'm glad we did, finding good camping looked hard to find for others who came later in the day. The hike up the peak was a good one. Hard to find the cairn markers are difficult to find some times. The weather remained unpredictable most of the time with clear weather, rain and at the higher points snow. My advice is don't follow any weather forecast; just climb the mountain and see what happens. Awesome hike, great boulder fields, and beautiful views.

Beautiful hike. short and steep. took our dogs here and they loved it.
