Deer Lodge, MT
Fun Family fishing at Trask Lake and a possible climb up Racetrack Peak. Trask Lakes, at 7,800 feet, offer excellent fishing for small brook trout. Fish are abundant, and even the youngest angler can expect a good catch. (The fishing is also good in the main Rock Creek along the jeep road in the first 3 miles of the hike.) The good fishing and moderate, 13-mile round-trip (1,900-foot elevation gain) make Trask Lakes perfect for family backpacking. Don’t forget the insect repellent, however, or your kids will not want to leave the tent. Drinking water is available all along the trail.
