this trail is absolutely beautiful. so many lakes and crystal clear ponds...wildflowers galore. went yesterday and you have to cross 2 creeks to get to the final lake. they are higher than average I would guess so all the rocks are under water, making it a bit tricky to cross both. the mosquitoes were ok but a good solid bug spray would be a must. a good portion of the trial is muddy or wet as this year has been high for rain. It is well worth it.

Similarly to other review I wrote, this is nice but really the nice part of this trail is much further along the beaten path. Worth taking the time to go much further to see valley, lake and rocky landscape

Lulu Pass is a beautiful place to view the Beartooth Mountains. The difficulty of the hike up from the meadows is medium-moderate with it being steadily uphill and then somewhat steepish back downhill from Lulu Pass to Fisher Creek.

This was a great hike. I would guess based on three distance trackers this is more between 5.5-6 miles. There are two steep dissents and climbs back out. We had a great time fishing as well. But take a lot of bug spray with you. The mosquitos about carried us off.

We left "The Dead Indian Creek Trail", and stayed overnight in Cooke City. We then started on the Cooke City side. Parking was plenty. There is zero parking cost, part they are not responsible for any damage or theft to your vehicle. There is a picnic area here, along with a toilet. Beautiful waterfall, and neat history if you just wanted to see a roadside stop. We backpacked to Rock Island lake. Our campground was gorgeous, along with the view. It was not a bad jaunt, if you are looking for a quick place for experience. We had a huge moose walk passed our hammocks at about 3:00 a.m. The stomps were amazing, on top of waking up scared as hell knowing there was that huge animal passing by. We woke up to see him still in the lake splashing. Simply Amazing. I would love to come back and actually do the trail itself. We were told we were making a mistake going this time of year because mosquitos just hatched. THEY WERE NOT LYING. Being from Minnesota, we thought we were used to them. They were unbelievable, although with the proper clothing, never really were bitten. We were also told we would hit a lot of snow....we had a few patches but nothing to really even walk on.
