Worth exploring. Since I biked it I didn't take many of the turn offs to see waterfalls. Trail is very rocky at parts, probably much better trails to MTN Bike in hyalite canyon and around bozeman.

Well worth the hike to the lake. Trail head under renovation so be careful with signs. Splits at Grotto falls trail and heads uphill to the right.

Amazing hike. Unfortunately, couldn't make it to the lake (about .3 mi short) due to heavy spring runoff and dangerous water conditions. Large snow fields also hampered our progress. All that being said, you won't find a more beautiful hike.
