Highly underrated, the lake is incredible and a shade of blue you can't quite describe. The hike in is manageable, not too challenging. Make time to stop and take in the views at the lake once you arrive.

Quite easy for the experienced hiker. Brings you to Otokomi which had breathtaking views. Don't forget to bring bearspray because the area is grizzly populair.

You follow a creek up the trail to the lake, beautiful waterfalls, and the burned area offers an abundance of wildflowers. The trout are thriving, and there's a lot to see walking around the lake.

Otokomi Lake was a gorgeous fall hike starting from the Rising Sun campground on the east side of Glacier National Park. The trail lightly climbs 2000 feet over five miles to the lake with a gorgeous waterfall and pools to swim in roughly halfway there. After the falls there's a good mile or so of hiking through a recent burn while the second half of the trail is littered with huckleberries. And the final mile of the trail walks over talus slopes. There's much to explore at the lake itself.

Awesome waterfalls, tons of windflowers, little traffic, and a great early morning hike!

A moderate hike, very few hikers, beautiful views, a few waterfalls along the way, and a Glacier lake. Perfect for a morning or afternoon hike.

Waterfalls, lots of fish and a great campsite. Easy to moderate hike, we did cross a few small snow fields but nothing dangerous.
