Big Sandy Lake via Big Sandy Trail
This is a moderate, popular, one way trail in Bridger-Teton National Forest.
This trail goes by V Lake, Diamond Lake, and Big Sandy Lake. This hike starts from the very popular Big Sandy trailhead. There is just a little elevation gain making this hike a long round trip, but not a difficult hike. The trail quickly wanders near a beautiful stream, past expansive meadows and then up through forest to Big Sandy Lake. V Lake and Diamond Lake require a bit of a detour from the Big Sandy trail to actually see them. Big Sandy Lake lies in a basin surrounded by beautiful peaks.
Expect to drive 20+ miles on good dirt roads to the trailhead. There is a large parking lot for this popular spot, but beware, weekends and holidays will be crowded. There is also a campground at the trailhead.
This is a long hike for most younger children, but the terrain is safe. The trail is popular, but remember this is bear country so take the necessary precautions.
