A nice hike up a forested trail, past lovely Fourth Of July lake, then over a high ridge with great views of the Sawtooth range to the west, high peaks of the White Clouds and a pretty meadow below. The trail over the ridge switch back down to the meadow then another downgrade through the pines, across a large rock strewn sidehill, and back into pines where several lakes are nestled under the craggy peaks.
