UPDATE: Just did this yesterday, as a trail run, and it's clear of snow -- even in the scree section that's often in a snowfield this time of year. Note that the recent flood washed out a bit of road just before the old Nature Conservancy ranch, and again just after Mill Falls. It's still passable, but drive w/caution.

Have done this a few times over the years. Really a great trail, with loads of upside at the top. Lake is gorgeous; often with mountain goats roaming around. Challenging in tough conditions or with younger kids (but certainly doable for them!).

great hike, there were a few fallen trees but they weren't hard to go around. Only problem I had was the snow. Went hiking June 11, 2018 and it started snowing on us, plus there was still a good bit on the trail near the top. 2 spots of the snow on the trail were a bit dangerous/tricky. Later we would have gotten lost if it weren't for old footprints in the snow. We eventually did not make it to the lake because we lost the trail from the snow. If we were better dressed and there were trail markers the hike would have been better.

It was a awesome hike, I am a beginner and I would consider a moderate, the elevation was gradual with switchback inclines. I was wearing a 25lb pack and did well. We went up mid June and there was still snow at the higher elevations about half a mile from the lake. we didn't get all the way through the snow was hip high still. I am definitely planning on going back up later in the year.

Went in late May and the last mile was still snow covered and the lake was frozen. Hard to get to the top in the deep snow which made it impossible to find any real trail, but it was a fun challenge and we had a great time. Really beautiful.

Great trail. It's full of thick vegetation, but breaks open into rocky pathways with breathtaking views.

Been doing this family hike since I was 7. Love it.
Moderate. Good for all ages. Beautiful lake, waterfall, alpine valleys with wildflowers, mountain goats. Everything you want in a Montana hike.

Flowers were beautiful the first week in July. We saw mountain goats playing at the lake.

Such a beautiful hike and the lake is an indescribable color! It's a moderate hike, lots of areas to climb once your at the lake if you choose to. We did see big horn sheep last time I was there and lots of bear grass!

Our Lake, near Choteau, Montana, is an amazing hike is most enjoyable - moderately strenuous. Need to take your time, enjoying the blossoming bear grass and other wild flowers.
Stop-turn around, to look and the view behind you!
Mountain Goats like to hang out at the lake and raise their young.
Take a pack lunch, picnic at the top - beautiful.
