Did this as a backpacking loop although some hearty hikers do the loop in one day. Either way you do it the views are breathtaking. Points to consider: 1. Do the loop clockwise, starting on the trail next to Two Medicine Lake. This will give you the most scenic walk into the loop along the lake (or some might take the ferry to the head of Two Medicine to cut down on a few miles). 2. Bring water and snacks. The hikes up to the pass (either side) will be hard. There is NO WATER between Pitamakan Pass and Dawson Pass. During the later summer, there is water from No Name Lake, then the next time, Oldman Lake. I would strongly recommend that you refill at both lakes either to prepare for the hike up or after you descend. You will need a good water filtration system. Do not dismiss this advice. 3. If you are backpacking, some do one night at either No Name or Oldman, then walk the loop and out. That is long but doable. Other options: A. Night one in Oldman, night two in Upper Two Medicine (the walk in is slightly less scenic, but Upper Two Medicine is really pretty and you have most of the descent completed). B. Night one in No Name, night two in Oldman (or reversed). These are both on the loop. Both are really nice. The route between Dawson Pass and Pitamakan Pass is like the Highline trail without all the people. DO IT.
