There are several different lakes of varying distances from the Bear Valley Lakes Trailhead. Let us know your interests and we can help customize the right lake trip for you. These trips can be done as a backpacking trip or make it a little easier with horses carrying the camping gear and supplies.
From the lakes, there is plenty of exploring to be done in the surrounding areas. Climbing some of the peaks in the Lemhi Mountains, reaching summits of 10,000 ft will provide great vistas. Once you are at the lakes, you may just want to relax in the beautiful alpine setting reading a book. For any fisherman in the group, these mountain lakes provide incredible fly fishing opportunities for cutthroat trout!
With the Middle Fork Salmon ending in Salmon, Idaho and the Main Salmon starting in Salmon, this is a great add on to your rafting vacation. Adding this to your river trips vacation is a great way to add more of a hiking element to your adventure vacation. Both these river trips do offer hiking, but nothing like an all-day hike to a mountain lake.
