Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

A short, final ascent to six beautiful backcountry lakes with views and camping opportunities abound.

Description

What makes The Six Lakes so appealing, like much of the Gros Ventre Wilderness, is that there's no easy way to get there. If you decide to make the trek from Crystal Creek Trail #4021 to Jagg Creek Trail #4084, you're looking at a ten-mile, one-way hike.

These lakes make for a great reward. There are a number of game trails in these parts, which can make for tricky route-finding and should also punctuate the necessity of bear awareness and all related precautions.
