Lupine Lake Trail is a 4.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Kalispell, Montana that features a lake. The trail is rated as moderate offers a number of activity options. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
We have taken horses in here many times. Busy trail with hikers, mountain bikes and dirt bikes. Everyone has always been respectful of our stock. Easy trail, only takes about an hour to get to the lake on horseback. There are a few spots along the lake to have lunch or go fishing. No hitching rails at the lake. Very limited parking at the trailhead.
Great hike with some steep terrain but levels out in between. Quiet lake and Beautiful canyon waterfalls. We mapped at 6 miles round trip. Do yourself a favor and come in on the west side. Way way shorter and almost all pavement.
Good trail that connects Griffin Creek Rd (FR 538) and Ashley Mnt (FR 9763). Most people come in from the west (Griffin Creek) and return the same way. It is roughly 7 miles from end-to-end and came be done as a shuttle. The lake itself has great fishing but is better accessed with a float tube. This trail is moderately used by stock, dirt bikers, mountain bikers, and hikers alike.
Nice short ( 2.75 one way) hike to great fishing lake. Nice canyon with waterfall. Otherwise very limited views due to forest .
