HikingGreat!

What a beautiful trail! The first two miles were in the woods and the smells were amazing. I kept telling my husband that it smelled like a Christmas tree farm! This is the part that is uphill, climbing switchbacks for those miles. The last 3/4 of a mile(ish) before reaching the lake is pretty flat. Very beautiful wildflowers to admire as you get closer to the lake. The lake itself is crystal clear and had it not been so windy and slightly chilly on the day we hiked I likely would’ve jumped in.

This a amazing hike to an ever shrinking natural wonder. The trail has some difficult spots but the beauty of the hike more than makes up for the tough bits. I’d like to thank the forest service for putting peoples well being first by closing the eastern side of the park during this global pandemic. Though it is an inconvenience. Glacier is a very heavily populated park during the summer with crowded visitor centers, campgrounds , and trails. Anyone who thinks this virus is inconsequential should consider the over hundred thousand dead American citizens and their families. Then they should choose there words more intelligently. A flat out denial of scientific fact is not what sent men to the moon and anyone who engages in this denial should be ashamed of themselves. Land management is not the same as servicing visitors. This is a wonderful trail enjoy it when it is open and safe to use.

As other reviews suggest, the trail head is nearly impossible to see from the road. If you see the private property sign 1/4 mile turn around and look back and you’ll see the trail head. The road for the last 1.6 miles to the trail head is only possible with a high clearance vehicle - we had a crosstrek and parked 1.5 miles from the trailhead and walked in. Beautiful hike! Once you get to the trailhead it’s all worth it.

Was gonna go to Island Lake but only had time for Mystic today. Mild to moderate incline on the way to the lake. Lakes a little high but not enough to wash out trails. Perfect day for a swim

Great trail that is both kid and dog friendly. Arrived just before noon on Friday and the parking lot was packed. Very busy trail today. Beautiful views throughout the post-fire recovering forest. Temperature was perfect. Falls were beautiful. Mosquitoes near the water so bug spray was helpful. We believe we also discovered leaches in the small lake just before the falls so caution would be warranted. Trail is well maintained. Watch for tree roots regularly crossing the trail and the occasional rock. Great hike and would do again!!!

HikingGreat!

I will definitely agree with alot of other reviewers, this is definitely a moderate hike. The "scramble" at the end isn't really much of one. you walk down a couple large rocks, catch another piece of trail, then walk down some more rocks and so on for maybe the last mile. Fairly easy to find the right lines, but was nice to be able to reference AT to make sure I was still heading the right direction. If you are camping at Turquoise Lake, be prepared to be kept up most the night by the mountain goats . Super cute watching the babies leap and bound up the rocks. Also, make sure you go for a swim after your hike... the water feels amazing! Takes your breath away at first, but you'll get used to it.

This is a great family trail. Lots of huckleberries and thimbleberries. A great day hike with lots of great lunch spots.

HikingOff trailRocky

This recording is a partially-offtrail loop that includes five of the Hidden Lakes. We started from the trailhead on the ATV trail, past the two ponds at the end of the ATV trail, up to the two Hidden Lakes (a little bushwhacking involved), then down to three more lakes (entirely bushwhacking), finally tying back into the ATV trail at the two ponds. Turn east off of Hwy 191 between mile markers 53 and 54 onto Portal Road. It takes 30-45 minutes over a very rocky road (30 if you are an aggressive truck driver, 45 if you are a cautious Honda CRV driver. Prius or RV...please, no). The road signage is pretty good now. When in doubt, stay on the main road and keep right. There are several camping spots along the road. We arrived at the trailhead at 8:00 am on a Friday. One other car in the lot, then two ATVs went by. It's about 1.6 miles to the Windy Pass fork, 2 miles to stagnant water, 2.3 miles to a stream crossing and 2.6 miles to the end of the ATV trail and the two ponds. To head up to the first two Hidden lakes, veer right at the first pond. The trails diverge like spiderwebs, but using OnX, we finally connected to the trail that took us to the first lake. (the actual trail has changed from map indication) From there, we continued to the left and had our lunch at the second lake. Then we got adventurous and decided to bushwhack from the first lake down to the third, fourth and fifth lakes. We had to cross a couple large boulder fields, marshy creek crossings (may not be passable until after mid-July?) and downfall. It was a struggle at times, but the lakes were so beautiful! We had a sunny day, under 50 deg when we started, 75 deg when we finished. After leaving the two ponds and ATV trail, we didn't see anyone else out there. Good shade.

HikingGreat!

Did this as a long day hike from Gunsight Pass Trailhead (signed on the trail as Jackson Glacier Overlook, it seems) and exiting at Lake McDonald Lodge... Amazing views of Gunsight Lake and Lake Ellen Wilson! Also lots of huckleberries and thimbleberries ripe right now below Gunsight Lake, and saw 4 mountain goats. Tried to keep distance for safety, but they don’t seem to have any concern about humans at all - would walk right toward us on trail, even within a few feet if we couldn’t get off trail far enough! Not too many people between Gunsight Lake and Sperry Chalets... which is really the part with the best views!

VERY BUGGY. Confusing junctions on the trails. Not worth the drive.

HikingGreat!

Well maintained trail, 2 easy rock jumping small creeks. Unbelievably beautiful trail near creek and through trees. Mountains along each side as you walk seemingly between them. Easy to get to trailhead with any kind of car, off a paved road. Moose do graze area. Passed by a number of hikers but often hiking without company in view. Fairly easy incline similar to walking up 3 flights of stairs throughout entire hike.

Nice trail. But, bugs (mosquitoes) were rampant. Fairly heavily trafficked. There are better places to hike.

I loved this trail. It was a pretty moderate incline—with difficult areas mixed in—the whole trail. Dog friendly, great spots to throw up a hammock and relax once you get to the lake. Only went to the first lake but there is another about a mile or so further.

link lake was exactly what we needed today - an easy but incredibly rewarding hike. The lake itself is just stunning and the fishing was excellent! Slammed cutties all day, some even had decent size to them!

This trail took our breath away. The low growth vegetation enabled beautiful vistas. Do bring plenty of water. Trail is well trafficked, but it is fun to hear where everybody is going — a day hike to Lake Elk or a through hike to Cooke City. God’s majesty is revealed on this hike.

HikingMuddyOver grown

Stanton Lake and its stream were a great reward. We hiked with our boys (youngest is 8 years old) and our large dog. They all loved it! They also enjoyed eating the wild raspberries on the side of the trail. We didn’t see much wildlife; mostly just squirrels. The trail is heavily overgrown in many areas, and it was muddy in several areas. There are many footpaths that lead to various parts of the stream or lake. We saw about 20 other people during our hike at 9:30 in the morning.
