Trailhead: Old Faithful Lodge cabin area
Distance: 6.8 miles (5.3 km) roundtrip
Level of Difficulty: Moderate
This trail climbs through lodgepole pine forest, some of which was burned in the 1988 fires, and along meadows and several rocky slopes before reaching the shores of Mallard Lake, a nice little scenic lake. If you are staying in the Old Faithful area, this is an excellent hike to get away from the crowds.
