"Snag Lake will be too long for a dayhike for many folks but is worth the trip, especially if you take a dip in the cool waters. The minimum trip would be over 9 miles out and back from the Butte Lake trailhead. Add another 5 if you wish to traverse around the lake. The other option is at least 13 mi..."les round trip out and back from Summit Lake trailhead. That is the option we took as we camped overnight at Snag Lake (free backcountry permit req'd) so we could hike up Cinder Cone the next morning.

"All the geothermal features of Yellowstone minus the crowds. Great for weekend trips in summer or winter. Be advised however that 89 through the park closes as early as Oct some years, and doesn't open until July."

We took Hwy 36 out of Red Bluff because we'd heard the other road, Hwy 44, was closed before the visitor center. It worked out great. There was snow on the ground under the trees and ..."all the mountains were snow capped. We watched the movie in the auditorium and saw the exhibits. We had a very nice time and enjoyed the cooler temperature. It was our first visit. We'd like to go back sometime to see the geothermal displays along the trails.
