There is no trail to walk on unless you walk on the train tracks.

Great hike, can make a loop of this to Our Lake, which is what we did-but it was a bit though to maneuver the boulders and scree. We were rewarded with amazing views of the lake and about 15 rams!

Fantastic trail with sweeping views of Rocky Mountain front range to the west and the Great Plains to the east. Trail climbs steadily and is in decent shape apart from areas where the trail crosses open grassland. In some places the trail disappears nearly completely aside from telltale signs of trampled grass. A short walk from the first saddle to the east reveals a great promontory for views to the east. Continue climbing up to where the trail dead ends at Blindhorse Creek. At the dead end, walk left to the crest of a hill, where you'll be treated to an "amphitheater" of Rocky Mountains sweeping more than 180 degrees.

Great trail. It's full of thick vegetation, but breaks open into rocky pathways with breathtaking views.

Amazing views and nicely maintained trail! The wildlife abounds as does the Rocky Mountain plant life our gps put it at 6.2 miles round trip

Trail offers beautiful views of Gibson Reservoir and surrounding mountains. First 1-2 miles of trail runs near summer homes but soon after becomes very isolated. Trail is in very poor condition with numerous trees blocking path. Also, after approximately 4 miles, the trail becomes indistinguishable with the various game trails throughout the area. Signs are almost totally not present, so getting lost would be quite easy.

Beautiful! We went 1 May and there was still some snow in the forested areas, but nothing waterproof boots can't handle. We didn't get all the way to the end but it was still worth it. Will definitely be doing this one again!

Remnant of Tundra swans, shorebirds but the snow geese have mostly moved on by April 1.

Been doing this family hike since I was 7. Love it.
Moderate. Good for all ages. Beautiful lake, waterfall, alpine valleys with wildflowers, mountain goats. Everything you want in a Montana hike.

I went into the Bob this way back in April where it snowed on our day and was sunny on our day out. Lots of wildlife is seen such as bald eagles, elk, and mountain sheep. Really easy hike too, mostly flat with some slopes.

Flowers were beautiful the first week in July. We saw mountain goats playing at the lake.
