Beautiful hike, great trail, last 1/2 mile to lake was steep down so coming back out was a lung burner. Fun hike!!

Nice wooded trail up to the lake which makes it a good hike on a cool day. There are several nice camp spots near the water.

Great hike up to the lake, lots of rocks to navigate. There is an unmarked trail around the lake. Forgot to record going back down.

This was a nice, quick hike. The lake was amazingly clear.

Quick hike through the trees to a beautiful lake full of grayling. Makes for a great afternoon but it is about an hour drive from Hamilton.

A great overnight trip with our kids. A few down trees over the trail, but nothing too serious. Snow was gone with the exception of a few shady spots. Packed out some trash and was saddened by the abuse of live trees.

Snow in some areas. A beautiful hike to a beautiful lake. The grayling were biting. We were there Friday June 14 and 15. To the group of the a$$holes were left all of their trash in the fire pit. Me and my boys packed it out for you.

It's a fairly dense walk in on a rocky trail. but once you get to the top it opens up to a beautiful lake! Easy hike in and out, even my 9 yo had no problems. Tons of fish up there too!

June 10th 2018. You will not make it to the trail head without a 4x4 truck or Jeep. Stock 93 GMC 1500 did fine. Maybe an Outback would do it but you will be scraping on large rocks. The trailhead has no signs or markings but it's easy to find. The first half of the trail is wet but clear. there is a swampy area you have to walk around but the trail is easy enough to pick up again. The 2nd half of the trail was dry and rocky. a few small downed trees, but not bad for such a remote trail. The climb wasn't too bad. It's high elevation (7600ft) so I don't recommend going in early June like me unless the forecast is clear. Rain was forecasted but we woke up to 3" of snow. Beautiful lake, at least 2 big sites with fire rings. I recommend it if your car can make it!

The entire Anaconda-Pintler loop is disappointing if you like glaciated peaks and rocky shore lakes to jump into. The passes are below timberline. The views come through acres of burned treestumps (thus, it's hot). To lake dump one has to wade through muck and grasses. The trail is wickedly not maintained: blowdowns to climb over, under, or around, slopping paths, unmarked junctions. Back to the Beartooths I go.
