One of my all time favorite places in the Sawtooths. This hike is tough and steep but with amazing and rewarding views. The trail is not the easiest to find or follow, it is not marked. Head across the river at flat rock junction (enjoy some time sliding down the rocks here too) before finding the trail to the north.

This hike was SO beautiful but it was pretty tough!
It is a steady incline for about two miles. The last mile/mile and a half is a CLIMB!!! Make sure you watch the trails and record your hike. It’s hard to find your way back.

Worth it!!

Beautiful trail. Difficult climb at the end but worth the effort! Lake is spectacular!
