Mystic Lake, trail 17 to East Rosebud
Posted by Brandy Leischner (+169) 9 years ago
I am looking for some information on the trail from Mystic Lake to East Rosebud Lake in the Beartooth's. I would like to talk to someone that has hiked the trail. I've frequently done Mystic and around, but wanted to try some new trails from there. The information I have is that it is 11 miles long and gains 3800 ft elevation and climbs above 10,000 ft. I'm not really worried about the elevation gain, unless it's in a one mile stretch or something. Also, I'd like to know when the best time to go would be. I would like to go in the spring, but snow may be too much then, but I would like some snow, because I don't want to have to carry too much water with me. Google earth and my GPS map shows a small glacier about a third of the way through the hike. And at 2/3 is Slough lake. If I go later, will the glacier still be there? Or is there a spring or something up there to get water? Any fish at Slough Lake?
Thanks in advance for any info.
