Lambert Meadows

Lambert Meadows can easily be summed up in a few words - a few meadows along the Highline Trail. Honestly, there isn't a whole lot to this area. Lambert Lake sits about 1/4 mile south of the trail. You technically can't see it from the trail because it lies just below a small cliff face, but you will know you are near it when you come to a small lake situated on the rim of the Lake Fork river drainage. The area is relatively flat and has some water and trees, which makes it a good place to rest or spend the night. The water and meadows also make this area a good spot to find deer and elk.

On the western edge of Lambert Meadows you will cross a tributary to the Lake Fork River. This is another good place to stop if you need another option. The river is big enough to take a quick dip in if you're into that sort of thing. It can also be a little tricky to cross, so go off trail a little ways to find better crossing locations. There are several spots in this area with trees over the trail too, so follow the side trails to keep from getting lost. From here, you will begin your descent into the Lake Fork drainage.
