A fun and scenic out-and-back to a beautiful alpine lake.

Chelan Babineau-Z

Overview

This trail is subject to the Trail Timeshare plan which prohibits mountain bike use on Sundays and Mondays between July 16 and September 5.
A Bozeman area classic that rewards the uphill grind with a beautiful lake, alpine views, and, best of all, a playful descent that keep you on your toes from top to bottom!

Description

Climb steadily from the Emerald Lake Trailhead and parking lot over a variety of trail surfaces from smooth forest floor to rock-and-root strewn switchbacks. Cross the east fork of Hyalite Creek at mile four and climb another half mile before descending briefly to the shore of Emerald Lake.

Once you've had your fill of Emerald Lake, retrace your route and enjoy the engaging descent.
