SUMMER ROAD TRIP, DAY 20
An unforgettable hike through an area of beaver ponds, forests of wildflowers, mystical waterfalls and even a jaunt over a suspension bridge all leading to a stunning lake in the midst of shedding the last remnants of winter.
Cobalt Lake Trail
We got off the beaten path today and hiked a less popular trail at the Two Medicine area on the southeast side of Glacier National Park. Cobalt Lake Trail is 11.4 miles roundtrip, 1,450 feet elevation gain and is considered moderately strenuous.
After the hike, we took the southern outer road outside of the park back to the west side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road and drove through again. We saw that the Red Tour buses went this route so we wanted to check it out as well. It is nothing compared to the main road so skip it if you come visit, it’s not worth your time.
