Walked up to Howe Lake with my friend Reed Trontel from the red caboose coffee + frozen yogurt shop in Whitefish, MT. Seriously, if you are in Whitefish, you need to stop there. It’s delicious, they have a sweet place, they’re cool and you won’t be disappointed.
Anyway, you’ll start out in some forested areas, but will quickly pop out into the burn areas and the lake (unless you did the loop like we did that started at the Howe Ridge Trail where that’s all in the burn area to the lake). Lower lake is made larger by a beaver dam and upper lake is closed to fishing due to loons. Keep an eye out for a variety of birds and wildlife as we saw some deer, but tons of animal sign.
