Hikes: Cache Lake In Yellowstone Park (4K)

Cache lake is a small and picturesque lake at the base of Electric Peak in the Gallatin BMA area of the park, and it is a short, roughly 12-mile round-trip hike to the lake and back.

This is a nice day hike that most people can do if you want to try experiencing the backcountry. You will see other people and horses on this hike but you can also see wildlife, including bears, if you hike the right way. I saw lots of grizzly tracks and saw a black bear on this hike. This hike is around 13 miles round trip and only about 1,000 vertical feet elevation gain. There is water all along this hike.
