The landscape changes as your hike along the Canyon Creek bottom up to a waterfall and eventually ending at a spectacular lake. At 11 miles out and back to the lake with nearly 3,500 ft in elevation makes for a fairly moderate endeavor but the payoff is quite spectacular.

Getting There: 

From Hamilton Montana, go west on Main Street for 1 mile, turn north (right) onto Ricketts Rd. and travel 0.5 miles. Turn west (left) onto Blodgett Camp Rd/FS 736, and follow approximately 2.4 miles. Turn west (left) onto Canyon Creek Rd/FS 735 and follow it approximately 3 miles to the end.

The trailhead for Blodgett Overlook Trail begins here as well.
