Hell Roaring has two trailheads. The upper trailhead can only be accessed by high clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicles along a very rough road. Parking is very limited. The lower trailhead is accessible by passenger car. Hike up the valley through lodgepole pine forests along a trail that climbs very gradually. Hell Roaring Lake gives great views of the Finger of Fate, a granite rock formation.
