Trail conditions were ideal. Well trafficked route with some beautiful views. The trails are all well marked. Definitely stop over at Aster Falls.

Belle randonnée où nous avons vu un élan et des bighornsheep. Le total fait la moitié de ce qui est indiqué soit 13,3 km ( la trace fait deux fois le tour , nous n’en avons fait qu’un !)

Great overall crowd pleasing trail. Lots of options to bail (boat pickup, side trails) and just enough elevation change to keep things interesting. Good challenge for a reasonably healthy married couple in their 30s (she’s quite healthy but I smoke) with a one year old in a backpack carrier. Mostly shaded.

Very nice 8 mile easy hike around lake including stops at Aster Falls and Twin Falls, pretty. Saw moose and grouse at start near camp. Beautiful shallow, clear streams with colorful rocks and one fun, bouncy bridge!

A beautiful, easy trail with not too many people. wildflowers everywhere in the season and beautiful views of Two Medicine. Definitely be careful of bears as they frequent this area.. Try to carry bear spray.

Beautiful. Saw lots of wild life, including a bear and her two cubs! Be aware, the ending is a half mile through a campground and parking lot to get back to the trail head.

Beautiful trail. Mostly shaded and offers beautiful views of the lake. There are a few trailheads that start from the loop trail that provide views of different waterfalls, overlooks, etc. I enjoyed the Astro falls, but wasn't too impressed by twin falls. If you wish, you can walk half the hike and take the lake shuttle back to the general store. It costs $6.50 ONE WAY or $13 for both ways (if you just want to walk around a little and come back without doing the full thing). We saw a variety of wildlife and the views of the mountains are fantastic. The lake glistens in the sun and there's the ability to rent kayaks/canoe as well!! Beautiful

This is about a 7-8 mile loop if you take some of the small side trails which we did, not 16.7. Pretty easy and a good starter hike to this beautiful park!

Nice trail with great views of the mountains and Two Med Lake. Great day hike if you are staying at the camp grounds.

Note that the red loop shown on the map is not 16.7 miles but rather about 7. It is about 7 miles to walk around the lake and is easy terrain but took us about 4 hours with side visits to twin falls and Aster falls. Saw a large grizzly about 300 yards up on the screen and also saw where he had been grazing and over turning rocks on the trail. Also left a large pile of grizzly scat. Definitely wakes you up to have a 400+ bear in the vicinity. Amazing views and impossible to get lost. Lovely stroll.
