Amazing. Nice hike. Easy to moderate.

Loved the waterfalls and the scenery! Mountain Goats visited and hung around for hours each day! Everything about this trip was breathtaking! I am 50 lbs overweight and had a 35 lb pack! Get out there!

Beautiful easy hike!

I recommend hitching a ride on a motorboat to the end of the reservoir and beginning your hike there. The nine mile lake trail is strenuous, windy and with a lot of loose shale. Make sure to wave when the boats pass you by.

Very hard climbing, make sure you have the right gear

Outstanding hike. First few miles are wooded with intermittent clearings which offer beautiful views. Nice grade (used for horses as well). We encountered a group of mountain goats at the pass. Reasonable scramble to the second ridge line if you take the western face ascent. Problem was, we couldn't find a good way up the final ascent and had to turn back after some serious climbing was involved. Think we should have gone a bit further to the south before heading up. Otherwise, you could cut across the north face at about 3 miles in, and scramble up to the ridge and follow to the summit from the east (that's what we'll try the next time). All-in-all a great hike.

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.

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!

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.

It's the Bob, and it's amazing. You can't really go wrong hiking in the Bob Marshall but if you are after views and a feeling of accomplishment, this trail will offer your that. Take lots of water, and a good camera. Parts of the trail are rocky so make sure you have good tread and start early!

The trail is a steady climb, not too strenuous though. I was allergic to something on that particular trail which was a challenge for me, so if you have allergies don't be like me and forget your pills! I enjoyed the views at the top, it is a perfect spot for a panoramic photo. You can see in all directions!

This is the reservoir trail to get into the Bob marshall.. its long, no wait... Never ending... hot and dusty! Get ready to be run over by pack trains. Paradise is just beyond. I recommend kayaking and hiking from the end. We did 42 miles. 3 nights. Memorable trip but the reservoir is the worst part. Enjoy!
