Just after Buttle Lake, you make a left turn onto a gravel road. Some 4x4ing required with some clearance. Once at the parking area, the hike up takes over 2 hours and is mostly uphill switchbacks. Once arrived at Baby Bedwell Lake there are 2 tent pads lake side and 5+ tent pads up on a rock atop of the lake. We hiked uphill, up some stairs to the other side of the mountain to where Bedwell Lake is located. Both have views of glacier mountains. The hike over from Baby Bedwell to Bedwell takes less than 30minutes. You can continue on to Cream Lake. At Baby Bedwell there is an outhouse and bear cache. Dogs must be under control. Bear bells are recommended as bears and other large animals are in the area.
