Rocky Point Trail is a easy hike with nice views at Rocky Point of Mount Brown and Edwards Mountain across Lake McDonald. Getting to the Trailhead for Rocky Point is a little tricky. At the 'T' intersection north of the west entrance to Glacier Park take a left on Camus Road. Cross the outflow from Lake McDonald onto Camus Road. As you go up the hill look for signs on the right for Fish Creek Campground, turn right onto Fish Creek Campground Road and stay to the left. You will come to a divided section of the road, there is a small building on your right and in front of you is the entrance to Fish Creek Campground. Circle back towards were you were coming from and immediately turn right onto the dirt road known as the (Inner) North Fork Road. From this point it is one half mile to the trailhead parking area. You will come to a gravel pit on your left, pull into the parking area in front of the gravel piles and park. The trailhead is in the right hand side of the road just before you entered the opening for the gravel pit.

We reached this trail right from the Fish Creek Campground where we were staying. Easy, quick hike, but we only did the loop/nature trail, which is less mileage. Great hike for a lazy day.

Easy to get to and moderately trafficked. I hiked it with my daughter and we got to enjoy fantastic swimming in pristine water to we off a hot day. Breathing views and inviting blue waters await.

This hike was nice and quiet, not many people on this side. Great view of the lake.

I love this trail. Perfect for kids, not to long and definitely not much vertical if you're only doing the loop. We had an 8, 6, 5, 4, And 3 year old in our group, all did just fine. Views are spectacular and plenty of little beaches at the base to play on if you're willing to walk down. A bonus to this trail is that most people aren't coming to this side of the lake, so you're sure to find parking and no crowds, though just enough people passing along to feel comfortable. great hike!

Great trail with kids. Nice creek with bridge, great view of the lake and continental divide at the end.

Fun hike but it is more like a mile long. My 9 year old lost his camera on the hike but otherwise it was great with nice views of Lake McDonald.

Short hike but when we went in early June there was maybe 6 other people on it which was nice. There's a good amount of open space to hang out and enjoy the nice view with friends.

We caught a break during the off season (late April) between some rain and hail and decided to give this Trail a shot with our two small children. The park ranger at the visitors center suggested this one. We loved it. It was just right to take small kids on and you get some pretty fantastic views of Lake McDonald along the way. The trail links up with several others so you could make this as big of a hike as you'd like. Oh we also got to see the raging waters of the streams coming down from all the melting snow and rain. Beautiful area that we'd enjoy returning to.
