felt like walking

would probably be great if you didn't spend most of your time just trying to find the trailhead.

Beautiful!

Easier than the M hike. Hiked this trail with my 5 year old. Took 2 hours with plenty of stops and breaks along the way.

Amazing views along the way! Waterfall is breath taking well worth the hike.The incline at the end is the hardest part.

Perfect hike for a nice spring day like today. A little icy but nothing you can’t handle if you pay attention to where you walk

Beautiful loop, my pup had a blast! still quite a bit of snow so be prepared.

Love this trail; we walk in multiple times a week and even with the ice/snow currently on it, it’s still very doable!

The USFS has closed part of the old road. It now starts at the large parking area where horse trailers are commonly left. You follow the road to the old trail head and then down to the river which you can cross and head to the Casey Peak Loop or down to the Casey peak trail head. There is a vegetation research station along the way. There is even a Willard Creek trail guide (although hard to find) you can read at each guide post. It tells of the history of the area and has a tribute to wild-land firefighters. There are some old picnic tables near the creek at the end. Beware of Moose, very common to find in the area.

FYI the trail and trail head are still there! You have to drive the road that follows the right side of the lake when you reach the small group of cabins at the end of the road there will be a small parking area on the right, after that you have to hike the rest of the way up the road into the trail head unless you have an atv or side by side. Great hike!!!

Lots of wildlife here - we saw a grizzly and others we ran into said they saw a Moose the same day. Had lunch at the lake.. It was spectacular!

Not far from Billings so it's easy to get to.

Beautiful, easy walk

Beautiful hike, we went beginning of April so there was still a lot of snow and trails were icy in spots. I can’t imagine how beautiful it is in the summer!

This is trail is still very snowy with bad ice in some spots. I highly recommend wearing snow cleats. I didn’t bring cleats so I had to turn around at the switchback because I couldn’t even make it up that without falling. Will try again in a month or so.

Great short little hike, upper trail was a touch muddy. Took 1.25 hours, and that was with plenty of stops and geocaching along the way.

Hiked on August 2, 2017. It was foggy and misty but with regular breaks of sunlight. This is one of the best hikes I have ever done. Magical views of Glacier National Park; water, multi-colored rocks, sunlight, greenery and wildflowers everywhere. The top down hike was still challenging enough and the park shuttle back to the parking lot was much appreciated!

Took off hiking at the Four Corners area on a road & had a great time. Got a little turned around & eventually found the rocks by “bushwhacking” up the mtn. Very interesting!!

Pretty great hike! My 9 year old daughter hiked this trail with me. I was surprised considering the grade and 7.1 mile out and back! This is a beautiful hike with a pretty little lake at the top! Bring bear spray. Wear layers and have a water pack if you’re going in the warm weather and of course, snacks. You’ll want to hang out at the top for a while and enjoy the view! Wild flowers galore. Very pretty hike!

Beautiful views. Had to re route our campsites due to grizzly activity, which made for a long second day. But the grizzly’s were amazing when we did see see them. Make sure to bring a lot of water, especially if the lake is closed as there as no other place to get water. The rain left us a little soggy. Would love to try again with better conditions.

Hike was nice, just wish the glacier would have made an appearance for us.

Totally love this hike. By far my favorite..

Beautiful hike in August

excellent view at the turn around loint.

Pretty hike up to Lava Lake. The route is a nice, casual incline throughout the entirety.

Steady, moderate-to-severe incline all the way to the top! Great views once you reach the ridgeline. Crampons or piercing snowshoes are required to summit Baldy this time of year (March). Good luck!

Amazing scenery all the way up. Beginning of Trail can be confusing. The view from the top is worth every step. We passed quite a few little mountain goats.
