With its whitewater cascades, towering granite battlements, and ancient larch forests, the trail along Bear Creek easily qualifies as one of the most enjoyable stream-bottom hikes in the Bitterroots. It is also, unsurprisingly, one of the most popular. Bryan Lake attracts the most interest from hikers, and two unmaintained spur trails offer prime alternatives for wilderness challenge and solitude. Highlights: A pleasant streamside trail leading to a mountain lake with good fishing and high scenic value.
