A beautiful mountain area to explore, and lots to explore. Camp here for a week or two and you still won't see all the trails.
Another fine job....

Another great job Ed. This is a great area to ride and you never run out of trails.

More great areas to ride ATV's! Idaho has everything to offer for the ATVer, hiker, horse back rider and even the walkers.
Great job!

I have rode some of these areas and they are absolutly beautiful and full of history.
Great job!

Dad took me and the other kids here in the early 90's. I don't think we started at Warren, though... We took a boat down the river and a raft for part. Then we rode up on horseback. I remember shooting his .44 magnum when we got to the lookout.

I also recall fishing (quite successfully!) at a decent sized lake somewhere out here. I was too young to be able to tell you where, though! I'd love to retrace these steps someday!

I think anyone would have considered my dad a real mountain man out here at some point (he was a hunting guide around 1970).

This was a fun and pretty easy hike! Our 5 year old made it the whole way up and back without any issues. The lake is beautiful and the hike has a lot of beautiful scenery along the way as well. I would highly recommend it for a quick day hike!

Our 8 mile hike was the perfect distance. The trail is easy to find, you start at the parking lot and walk on the left side of the river the whole time following an easy trail. (don't cross the bridges, different trail) On the hike you'll see a bridge 3.5miles into it. We walked another mile on the left side of the river and we finally saw (across the river) a stream coming down the mountain. We then walked across the river (1.5ft deep) and took our boots off. There's a trail that goes straight up the hill by that stream and it took us right to the hot springs! Two little pools at are nice and warm after a day of hiking. Will be going again!

Nice hike. The lake is tucked in and takes you by surprise

It was a great hike, my 6 and 8 year old daughter's made it. We continued onto Anderson Lake. Great fishing from both lakes. It was a great for a first time backpacking. Nice spots on Boulder Lake to camp.

Luis lake is beautiful, with lots of fish jumping! No bait. 2 fish, size limits etc.
from the entry, you hike a ways and meet up with a logging road. take a left when you emerge and follow the painted rocks. Uphill pretty much all the way there, downhill back. Wear decent shoes or be prepared to take you time to avoid slipping.

Took this as an easier first jump to the more strenuous uphill past Boulder Lake to Anderson Lake. Trail starts easy then gets moderate with switchbacks before leveling at the dam. Ample camping around east end of lake, plenty of water sources for filtering water.

Option: Continue up the trail north of the lake to Anderson Lake. Uphill followed by a downhill to the lake. Decent fishing and swimming as well as jumping on the far side of Anderson.
