Short but sweet.

Description

Parking for the trail is at a fantastic overlook of a broad, wildlife-filled meadow that leads to the Madison River. Cross the road to the north and enter a dog-hair lodgepole pine forest with limited views. The trail gently rises and begins to reveal the surrounding mountains, but the real treat is when you reach the lake.

This lily pad covered lake beautifully reflects the rocky hillside behind it. It's a great haven for a wide variety of waterfowl and a perfect route for visitors of any age.
