we went late july...it was awesome country, absolutely beautiful! the reason I gave it 4 stars was there was to many people up there, we had trouble finding a camping spot... and there was a group of boy scouts, nothing against them, I think it's awesome that kids get out like that, but they where noisy and running around. over all though, it was great!

We've camped here twice now. We slept by the water, caught the biggest fish on our hike, and watched the sunset turn the mountains red. Absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to come back.

Great hike, I swear it isn't marked correctly, felt longer than 3.5 miles. Nice place to hike to and have a picnic.

Amazing. Overnight hike. Limited places to pitch a tent near the lake shore but beautiful place to spend the evening.

This trail was "Spectacular " I will be back many times to come!

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.

For as far as we went up the trail along the creek it was a fairly easy, gorgeous walk. The real treat is the hot Sulphur water hot tub (with various temperature inlets to adjust the water to your liking) near the trailhead, clothing optional.
