“A zone perfect for exploring the Wilderness not far from Bozeman.”— samh Haraldson
At the lakes spend some time boulder hopping and climbing to the upper lake area. You'll surely have this to yourself for exploring and sublime camping.
The following day, make your way northwest along High Lakes Trail and then down Camp Creek Trail, camping again if you have the time. Continuing down Camp Creek Trail, make a right on Cherry Creek Trail heading southeast.
The run grows a little more boring as you make your way along a private land boundary but the views are still gorgeous and the scenery stunning. Make your way up and down a series of small coulees until you make the final descent back to your vehicle at the Spanish Creek trailhead.
