  • very nice lake and lots of chances to see some wildlife. Some what steep at the first but after that a nice hike.  more »

  • Beautifully tranquil lake with an abundance of wild life.
  • Postcard picture day with a few bison near lake, trout visible but not biting (spawning season). Hike to lake was more elevation change than expected. Well worth the 2 hour stop.
  • This was a cool one!
  • Short hike to a small lake. The incline isn't terrible for an average person. Most people could do it carrying an infant in a kid backpack, but I don't think a stroller would make it up. A stroller definitely wouldn't make it on the loop around the lake.
  • Steep hike at the start but our 3 year old did it just fine. The trail around the lake was only ok. We did get to see a Black Bear here!
