Even when the parking lot is full, the trail isn't crowded. I love walking this trail, adjacent to a crisp, gorgeous mountain stream, joined by my family and doggie. We keep going back because it's never disappointed us.

Nice day hike or weekend backpacking adventure. Fishing, clean water, God & country. When friend Cristi from Romania visited, we thought of Lake Fork. And stream fishing's fun there.

About five miles above alpine Red Lodge, MT, on paved road all the way to the trail head, this is beautiful day hike as well as great for backpacking. At about 7000 feet, the scenery, clear water and fishing will not disappoint. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g45325-d3242909-Reviews-Lake_Fork_Trail-Red_Lodge_Montana.html

For a beginner, this trail had a gradual incline and wonderful scenery. Waterside hike throughout the entire trail. Carry bear spray as a precaution!

I think a stroller is doable for the first section of the hike, I can't speak for the entire hike since I didn't go that far
