About a 4 mile hike in, but WORTH IT. Gorgeous lake with a incredible sunset and sunrise. Lots of wildlife sounds
Straight shot to the water, absolutely gorgeous
We hiked in from the Cascade Creek trailhead and stayed here on our first night of five in the backcountry. A fairly gentle 5mi in with buffalo sightings along the way. Clouds of gentle dragon flies created the illusion of a blue mist in the marsh as we walked in. Cutthroat trout literally jump out of the water at the lake and we found a nice spot for our tent down by the water within easy walking distance to the fire pit and bear hang. Site is equipped with hang (as all backcountry sites in Yellowstone) making that part easy after following an obstacle course of logs to get to it :) only downed and dead trees for firewood is allowed in the park and was a bit scarce at this site. Amazing views Make sure to bring lots of deet spray, your water filtration system and your fly fishing gear!
