Amazing Hike... saw Big Horn Sheep from less than 100 yards, Elk nearby, and great fishing in the lake. About half mile in there was a series of stream crossings that may be made more confusing by the spring run off, almost no way to get through without getting wet at some point but just keep going up stream and you will find main trail. We camped to the left of the waterfall below the lake in a nice spot mostly closed in by trees but with great views. Originally following a trail description on a map, which said the elevation gain was 700 feet and distance to lake was 3.1 were were challenged. Even the mileage description here may be a bit off, both my Garmin watch and Explorer registered us closer to 4 miles and that was to the base of the waterfall and not up the last bit to the lake.
