Hiking

Nice and easy hike. Was very pretty with the fresh snow. The entire trail is alongside a creek. There is one short incline but 90% of the trail is flat. was dissapointed in the water temperature; I have come here 3-4 times previously and have never experienced the water being as cool as it was today. lukewarm at best.

It’s great until you get around Carlton lake at which point you start going straight up with no defined trail at all. It is vertigo inducing. Once you reach the false summit it is very pleasurable to the true peak with stunning views of more mountains to climb. The way back is just as terrible if not worse once you reach the goat track, but it does make you appreciate solid ground. Definitely more than 11 miles, we clocked 15 though we did get lost on the boulders.

It was an OK hike. Hot Springs were pretty cool to see but was basically luke warm bath water nothing to exciting. People seemed to really enjoy them though.

Hiking

We went up 9/6/20. The directions on All Trails to the trailhead are wrong. You need to take highway 12 wear from Lolo to Mormon Peak (not Mormon Creek) Road. Take Mormon Peak 8 miles to the trailhead. We went left around Carlton Lake and then went up the right side of the mountain. I would not recommend this way- pretty steep with a lot of loose rocks and not a lot to grab on to. It does get you right up to the false peak. Lolo peak is the bare peak behind the false peak- easy to get to from there. You will see a little trail at the false peak that you can take down, left across the mountain (this is the route we took on the way down). I would also recommend going up this way as well. The left side when looking at the mountain looks steeper but it’s definitely not. You can boulder hop a bit on the way up and then you will hit the little trail to keep going. We clocked closer to 13-14 miles. Beautiful even with some haze!

Definitely Hard. At Carlton lake I just turned right and headed straight up. Saw no sign of a trail to peak. First peak is a false peak. It’s an easy down and up to Lolo peak. Last week of August, no bugs. Bring tons of water as the last bit is brutal. Did up and back in 7 hours. Would not recommend dogs personally with the rocks to the peak. Stunning views at top.

What a nice hike and the hot springs were very really nice. There are multiple pools to get in. Everyone had there own pool to relax in.

Wow! What an amazing spot. We arrived around 4:00 on a Monday in late August and had a pool just to ourselves. Only saw a few others on the trail. We took a steep trail down to the first spring which was a perfect mix of hot and cold. This is also a gorgeous stretch of the river. Enjoy!

First two miles were pretty burnt. From trailhead to meadow creek trail was pretty difficult to find the further back you got. Past there and almost all the way to bass creek drainage was close to impossible to find, with lots of bushwhacking and climbing over logs. Very pretty place, but lots of signs of bear and moose.

The trail is alright, just follows a creek with some beautiful scenery but the hike isn’t anything to write home about. The hot springs however are fantastic. Very secluded and a great place to stop if driving through lolo pass. If you have children then please keep in mind that people frequently get naked in these pools.

BackpackingBugs

Great hike. I generally hike moderate rated trails and this was my first backpacking trip. The hike was a bit tough for me but I had a 25 pound pack which was a first for me. It was a steady incline up until you got to the top of Carlton Point, then you hike down for about a mile to get to the lake. Two things to note. The difficulty is rated hard because the stretch from the lake to the summit is quite difficult for people like me. We crossed paths with a very athletic couple that made it to the summit and they even mentioned it was difficult. Second- there are a TON of mosquitoes at the lake. Do with that information what you will but it was so bad we couldn’t really be outside our tent for fear of being eaten alive.

Fairly steep hike on trail until Carlton Lake. We went up to the peak from the south side-(headed over the dike) by bushwhacking and some boulder climbing. Came down more of the front of the peak over the boulders which resembled somewhat of a trail. Not an easy climb for sure but well worth the view and satisfaction. We took dogs and they were able to make their way over the boulders without too much difficulty. Did it as a day hike- left trail head at 3:30 and got back to parking lot at 10pm. Round trip was 12 mi. Did not go over to the other peak.

HikingGreat!

Great hike! It's a tough rock scramble past the lake. Not for the faint of heart. The map here doesn't take you to the top of Lolo Peak. You gotta get up there to the ridge then go down and up a little more to the next peak to be on Lolo. It's about 12.6 miles round trip from the parking lot.

Beautiful hike, broke it into two days, stayed two nights at the lake, caught ALOT of cuttys, no real trail between the back of the lake until the finger that pops up to to the ridge, anyone know why there’s no survey marks on the peak? But they are on the false peak?

Great view! Trail goes missing in places. Very rocky! Slid a couple of times. Took my 8 yr old daughter and niece and they did great but scrambled a few times.

Loved it! super fun, somewhat technical hike. very doable with the right equipment and skills. my dog accompanied me and she did great. I kept her on leash so she wouldn't scramble off after a chipmunk. poles recommended for stability. mountain face gets warm in the morning so start early and bring water. I went around 9am and it was great. awesome views. take your time, watch your step, and you just might enjoy it. no bugs, clear trail. I'll be coming back.

HikingGreat!MuddyOver grown

The higher you go the more flooded out trail you will see. We gave up keeping our boots dry after a bit...fun two days coming over from Bass creek drainage would give the trail a 3 stars if all your doing is day hiking it and want to put in less time than it takes to get to the lake over the ridge from Bass but more if you want to go further. The first part zig zags logging roads quite a bit.

Great trail, lots of shade and sunny areas. Trail starts out pretty easy and gets more inclined along the ridge with switchbacks. Nice views and the hike along the water is wonderful...this all coming from a couple novice hikers!

What a beautiful serene place. we went for Mother's day, even though the closure orders with threatened $5000 fines. We weren't the only ones who who didn't care. Encountered around 20 or 30 lovely people. Had great conversation, beautiful scenery, and a long soak. There is something magical and stress releasing in that mineral water. This weekend Weir Creek.
