the David Thompson Highway dips down to the lake you reach
the trail head for Allstones Lake and Creek, two very
different but rewarding hikes.
The view from the creek estuary across Abraham Lake and
towards the Front Ranges is one of the best.
the hike along the creek bed is shorter and more of a
scramble in and out of the creek until blocked by a waterfall,
the trail to the summit is a relentless and steep climb
through the forest. This is a very popular trail and as
you approach tree line and traverse the side of the hill,
the views are quite stunning. Allstones Lake itself, depending
on season, is more of a large puddle, but the extra half
hour to the peak is well worth the effort and provides
spectacular views of Allstones Lake and the First Range,
Abraham Lake and Bighorn Dam with the entire foothills.
