HikingGreat!

The trail is perfect. Beautiful! 5+ miles in wasn’t too steep, lots of creeks to see and waterfalls to listen to. If this was my last hike of the summer I’d be good with it. Perfect hike and lake.

Great trail with beautiful wildflowers in bloom. Can be used for hiking, biking or trail run. Started out the hike with all ages and the youngest quit about 1 mile in and headed back. Definitely on the moderate side. We trail ran out and it wasn’t too bad areas of shade to stop and cool down.

Didn’t do the whole thing because we didn’t have bear spray and the group got scared. Will definitely do it right next year. Nice gradual incline and lots of shade. Lots of mosquitoes too.

We started this trail off of the Hebgen Trail Head. It was much easier then the other longer way where you would start from above Hebgen (attempted two days prior). The trail was well maintained and the fish were jumping!!

Easy hike overall. Took our dogs and they loved it. Bring a hammock and snacks and hang at the lake for a while when you get up there! Saw a few little snakes while hiking the trail.

June 8, 2017: wildflowers out, very pretty. Top half of trail still a bit snowy with several areas of treefall and a few small stream fords. Good time with the kids!
