Red Lodge, MT
The Hellroaring Plateau is a vast, top-of-the-world alpine tundra lying above 10,000 feet. Although the elevation gain of this hike is gradual, at this height the gain feels more substantial. From the trailhead, there are great views up Rock Creek Canyon and the Beartooth Highway switchbacks across the valley. This hike accesses a beautiful alpine basin filled with a chain of 14 lakes. Many of the lakes offer excellent fishing. Be prepared with warm and protective clothing, as the weather changes abruptly. It is wise to have a topographic map.
