Great hike close to town

So we had to park in the lower parking lot due to the snow, which made this a lot longer of a hike! It was about 12-13 miles round trip. We could not believe it when we saw you could drive right up to the lake in the summer.. haha. The trailhead sign was buried in snow. It was HARD in the snow, not to mention it started blizzarding when we got to the frozen lake. Made for a fun adventure though & those mountain views at the top were amazing, plus the absolute silence. I can't imagine how it would look when it was a clear day!! If your feeling adventurous, go for it in the Winter :)

Good hike. Agree with the other review.. this is not the hike with the waterfall. It's an uphill hike with views of Lolo Peak. Nice views. Tough right now because there is still a ton of snow, so it'd make a great snowshoe.

Loved this trail! Had great views & lots of fun! I would definitely recommend as a year round solid hike

Great even in the rain! Pretty slushy with residual snow on part of the trail

SO WORTH THE CLIMB.

Nice hike....great for a family to do. Lots of features.
