Mystic Lake

Updated: Oct 14, 2019

Growing up near the Beartooth Mountains (this is Jamie speaking), Mystic Lake was like a comfort food. It was the hike we would always go to when we needed familiarity & adventure all in one. We almost always recommend this hike to a newbie. It's relatively easy (1300 ft elevation gain) and has the most breath-taking view when you come up and over that last ridge on this 3 mile hike. Its trailhead is near Fishtail, MT. It's a great hike for young families and again, those new to the Beartooths! We did this hike as a family of three, when Rowen was 3 1/2 months old. We were also joined by two of our best friends - the power couple that is Carly Loves Amos Photography! Go to our partner page and check them out.. all Mystic Lake photo credit goes to them!

Isn't she a beaut?!! Fun fact: Mystic is the deepest lake in the Beartooth Mountains. Go see her for yourself.. you won't regret it!

Any questions? We love to help others find their way to amazing places! Email us -
