This trail is often closed until at least July 1st because of bear-management concerns, so check on this before heading to the trailhead. If you stop to investigate thermal areas, be careful not to disrupt delicate ecosystems or burn yourself.

Épuisante par son retour en ascension, mais vaut vraiment la peine pour le magnifique lac et sa vue sur les montagnes! Idéal pour une petite baignade dans le lac en été!!!!

Great trail for getting away from the usual traffic. Suggest climbing My. Sheridan for views of Yellowstone Lake and The Grand Tetons on clear days.
