Great hike! Going in it's all pretty much up hill. Beautiful view, lake is great!

This is a scenic route follow 75 towards Boise. There are multiple hot springs if you drive inland. Road quality is OK in dry weather. Rutted

We hiked this trail in October and left the only human footprints in the first snow of fall for 2 days. We walked to Toxaway Lake first night, then over the pass the second day. The view over twin lakes was stunning. I would recommend doing the hike this direction as opposed to Alice Lake first.

Great almost 360 views at a rocky summit. Take some time there! Good trail. Mid October we had mud and snow. Beautiful all the way!

I have hiked approximately 110 miles in this area and camped at numerous lakes in the area for 10 nights. The trail is great, unless you run into motocycles. They are apparently allowed all the way to Frog Lake. I have nothing against these riders but their activity is loud and tears up the trail considerably.

The fishing is great at most of the lakes. I highly recommend Castle Lake and Walker Lake. If you are up for a challenge, go swimming in Lonesome Lake. The last time I was there was in late July and there was still ice on it.

The scenery is beautiful and there are plenty of camping sites all along the lakes. There are typically lots of horses and outfitters that frequent the area. They are all friendly and great to interact with if you choose.

Enjoy. This is one of my favorite areas in Idaho.

Great little hike- steepest at the end. There is a lot of burned forest before you get there but don't be discouraged. The forest is still B-E-A-U-TIFUL and the little lake is clear and breath taking.

It was a fun hike but the last part was a killer. Mostly shaded which was really nice. Great day.

Beautiful scenery, pass 6-7 lakes and hike alongside a creek most of the way- plenty of water availed for filtering. Trail relatively flat and easy going, incredible views.

Beautiful short hike
