Details

Distance wise this is a long day, 17.6 Miles, total elevation change for the distance will be moderate though at roughly 2,500'.

The hike will begin at Two Medicine Lake and will be in the trees for the first portion until we gain elevation into the sub-alpine areas. There is the opportunity to see bighorn sheep, mountain goats and of course bears (bear spray will be required to hike in this group).

During this hike you will have views of Oldman Lake, Two Medicine Lake, Rising Wolf Mountain, Flinsch Peak, Mount Helen and Pitamakan Lake just to name a few.

Due to the distance we will be covering please be physically fit, come prepared for adverse weather but at the same time don't overburden yourself with gear you won't use... we will have to keep a moderate to fast pace in order to complete the loop in a timely manner.

We will meet at the C.Falls park and ride right across from Big Sky Water slides at 5 A.M. Departure time will be 5:10 A.M. sharp. Hope to see you all there!
