More of a nature walk than a hike. Lots of people and dogs, and really relaxing

First time in Sawtooth. Very sad I only had one day here. Hope I’ll be back soon. This trail was nice and easy, with a breathtaking view at the end.

HikingGreat!

The Fish Hook Creek is a great hike that is easy yet long enough to provide great exercise for the family. My school aged children were able to complete it without complaints. The trail begins at a beautiful stream in a forested area. The trail continues after the forest without much shade but along many parts of the river which is nice. The end of the hike is met with a majestic view of the Sawtooth Mountains and river . It’s an absolute must do hike if you are visiting the Stanley, Idaho area.

Easy flat out and back trail with beautiful scenery. Fish hook lake wasn't much of a lake, but the view over the meadow and stream to the Sawtooth is breathtaking. The stream along the trail early in the hike under the pine trees is cool and peaceful. Glad we did it. (we hiked in late Sept)

This hike needs to be started by mid morning to get the best views.

Easy, kid friendly trek. Air quality is far from ideal and the haze from the fires is clouding the views. Would be decent for a brisk jog if the air was clear :)

HikingGreat!

September - Late Summer This is a nice little hiking trail that leads to some amazing views of the Sawtooth mountains. I’m not familiar with the area, but I felt like this was the best view I got of them without being up in the mountains. Trail is very easy, and flat all the way to the meadow. Only took us about 45 minutes to reach the end. The trail follows Fishhook creek the whole way. A wilderness permit is not needed at first, but there is a box for one at the meadow. It looked liked the trail kept going, but we followed it up the valley for about a mile and a half and it didn’t seem to go anywhere. The parking area is large, and quite busy. Technically the trailhead is called “Redfish Trailhead,” and it acts as an entry point for several trails (including this one). Overall, I think this acts as a great first hike of the Sawtooths before taking a trail up into the mountains. I only wish it was less crowded, and maybe had the option to continue on into the mountains for those that wanted to.

The weather was lovely. Trees and a breeze made it perfect stroll in beautiful Stanley. The opening at the end with the view of the Sawtooth’s is stunning. Easy trail, not steep and wide most of the way so you can walk next to your buddy and chat.
