|Directions||Although the lake is geographically close to the city of Missoula, access is very difficult and requires substantial off-trail travel through steep terrain. There are several USFS routes from which to choose. Route distance and difficulty vary, but all require non-motorized travel. Common starting points are the trailheads at West Fork Gold Creek (Trail # 52), Ravine Creek in lower Grant Creek (Trail # 34), or in lower Rattlesnake Creek at the main Rattlesnake National Recreation Area trailhead (Gated Road #99). Please refer to USFS maps for specific travel routes and connecting trail numbers to reach the upper Rattlesnake basin on USFS Trail #515. From the end of this trail, access will require a ~ 1.5 mile off-trail climb of ~ 1,100 ft to reach the lake. Total travel distance from USFS trailheads ranges from 9-17 miles. There may also be shorter, alternative routes through the Flathead Indian Reservation from the northwest.|
