  • The trailhead is pretty well marked, but the parking on either side of the road is pretty limited. We did this hike first think in the morning on a post Labor Day trip, so parking wasn't a problem...

  • Very nice hike and the Views at the top were worth the hike. Yellowstone Lake and Lake Lodge were really beautiful to view. Pretty wooded hiking trail, there was snow around, so it made it very interesting and pretty. Several trails to choose and regularly used.
  • The hike of Elephant back mountain is very rewarding. The first mile or so you climb around 800 feet. but the overlook up in the mountain is amazing.
