The hike from Two Medicine camp store parking lot up to Cobalt lake has great views of the surrounding area. Very scenic hike with some falls , streams and just lots to take in. Some moderately steep sections.

Such a stunning view and refreshing dip in the lake! Tough trail with some wild weather, but definitely a favourite.

Great hike and a decent alternative to some West side hikes that were inaccessible due to a fire. The lake was refreshing and there were mountain goats on the cliffs above the lake. Cold beer at the end is definitely called for.

Long distance. Pack enough food and water. Encountered snow, hike along a stream, steep inclines in parts, not much shade in places. Cobalt itself is relatively small and sheltered. Take swim or have a nap before heading back. Grab a beer or ice cream at the nearby store at the end as a reward. You’ll need it.

Loved all the Beargrass this year and the wildflowers the last 1/3 of the hike were beautiful!
