Harlequin Lake Trail, located near Madison, offers an easy one mile roundtrip hike. A gentle ascent through burned lodgepole pines to a small, marshy lake popular with mosquitos and waterfowl (but not harlequin ducks). Nice quick hike to escape the road for a little bit.
Directions from Madison Campground: Travel 1.5 miles west on the West Entrance road.
Mid-May through Late September .
