Overview: A day hike or backpack to this lake or beyond ranks among the finest in Glacier NP. This trail goes by beaver ponds, crosses several green, lush meadows, passes two waterfalls- Aster Falls and 4-level Rockwell Falls. Before the falls there is also a .4ml side trip to Paradise Point to Two Medicine Lake which is an outstanding viewpoint. Hikers may camp at beautiful Cobalt Lake known for its rich green of surrounding forests and meadows, the alternating bands of deep red and cobalt that run through the cliffs and the bright blue of the lake. From here hikers can continue on Two Medicine Pass TR over the high alpine ridge crests another 2.2mls to Two Medicine Pass(at 7400'), or onward for the remote campsite isolation of Lake Isabel at 5700'; Recommended hiking period: mid-July thru September;
