Well, it's hardly worth a thread. You don't even have to pack a lunch for this ride, about 44 miles of forest road total.



The off-highway starts after getting off 93 south of Hamilton onto Lost Horse Road. For the most part, the road follows a stream. There's private property for the first few miles, a lodge with cabins to rent and then a moderately slow climb in elevation for about an hour's ride to a ranger cabin. A left takes you to a popular horse turnout and a right takes you steeper in elevation climb for two miles to Twin Lakes and Schumaker campground at 7200'. The fire smoke was a little lighter than in the valley. There were not a lot of people out. Not counting rangers, I only saw three other vehicles. My neighbor tells me two weeks ago it was packed.



The near lake of Twin Lakes. There is a guy on a float tube out there. The other lake is a short hike away. This picture was taken from the road coming down from the campground:









This is about halfway up that two mile stretch from the ranger station to Twin Lakes, looking down the valley back toward 93.









This is the stream I mentioned. It's low this time of year. In the background just this side of the little waterfall, there's a pool big enough to swim in, and a camping space just above it.









When I figure out a way to take my good camera I'll post better pics. Not horrible pictures for a seven year old $30 ebay phone though.

Yep, you have a ton of smoke your way. Bet the view of the lake is fantastic when there's no smoke.

Howdy Retmotor,



I live most of the year in MT and can't help wondering where exactly Twin Lakes is. Is it out of maybe hamilton or where?



By the way, your pics look just fine to me so keep your camera.
