Description

The Cache Lake Trail is a spur trail running north from the Glen Creek Trail to the small 16-acre lake. The lake is shallow, averaging just 4 feet, with a maximum depth of 12 feet. It has no significant fish population. Years ago there was a backcountry campsite on Cache Lake. Since its removal there is little reason to visit the lake.

Thanks to guidebook author, Tom Carter, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about visiting Yellowstone, check out his book, Day Hiking Yellowstone.
