“A beautiful, easy trail with stunning views of the Beartooth mountains/plateau.”— David DeBry
At 3.5 miles, you turn south down a steep embankment and head toward Beartooth Lake. At this point, you'll be on the Beauty Lake Trail. The views and expanses of this glacial region are spectacular. Also, this trail is easily accessible, as long as you are in this area. Also, make sure you explore the rest of this area as there are many great trails nearby.
