We hiked the Trout Lake Trail which leads you to a nice size lake. It actually was a nice hike, a little steep at some points, but overall it was not hard at all. The lake is a decent size and there were a number of men fishing. We took our lunch with us and had a picnic lunch by... More

Great hike! Not that far of a hike but it seemed like we were far from the road. You must be bear aware as you hike this trail. We didn't see any bears BUT we did see a fresh bear print and fresh scat from most likely a wolf. Well worth it!!!

It's a little bit of a hike to get to the lake, but it's not that bad. Once you make it up the hill it's a beautiful view of the mountains, and if you keep following the trail it brings you to Trout Lake which is gorgeous. When we went there was no one there, and we had the whole... More

Beautiful, moderately strenuous hike. Many wildflowers along the way. Saw a buffalo skeleton in the lake near the shore. Good fishing. Nice little stream running into the lake. Quite, tranquil setting. Nice meadow area of a picnic and nap.

Incredible spot and only a short hike off the Lamar Valley Road. It's quite steep uphill but not too far. Beautiful lake, we had such a lovely picnic with no one around for miles it seemed! The whole area has to be seen to be believed. I think this is my favourite place in Yellowstone.

Did the Yellowstone trip in July 2014, did a lot of hiking including toms trail, mt. Washburn and many others but this one was by far the best! We will be passing through Yellowstone this year just so we can hike up to Trout lake again, and drive through Lemar Valley (our favorite section in the park). To get the... More

This was our favorite hike of our trip in June 2014. It was a short hike but a steep climb to get to the lake. We used hiking poles and had no problem. When you reach the lake you get a big reward...it is breathtaking!! We even spotted a bear walking in the distance on the hillside! The walk around... More

This is a short 0.9 miles round trip in the Lamar Valley area. The whole hike is uphill until you get to the lake. Going down is easy. You won't believe there is this beautiful lake with the feel of the back country just 1 mile from the main road! It is so quiet there and you can see the... More

It's about 2/3rds of the way out the LaMar Valley and you'll love the drive (and the bison) going out there. The trail is only 1.5m RT but it's beautiful. The hill going up is a bit steep, but short and takes you to Trout Lake. You then walk along the path around the lake, including a cute little waterfall.... More
