Barking Fox is a secluded alpine lake deep in the Big Horn Crags of the Frank Church wilderness. Its seclusion, rugged beauty and good fishing make it a legitimate destination but the real value of this hike is the many and varied vistas along the route. Only the hardiest of hikers will want to try for this lake in a single day but there are many beautiful campsites along the way. Toilet faclities are provided at Welcome lake and Terrace Lakes. Heart lake is also a good mid-point for a nights layover. The Waterfall canyon route past the Terrace lakes is a good, well maintained trail
