Some backpackers consider this a model mountain trek. Hike into an area proposed as part of the Great Burn Wilderness and camp at the largest alpine lake in this western Montana portion of the Bitterroot Mountains. Walk a reasonably easy 3 miles to a high lake, make camp, and behold the opportunities for scenic side trips to the lofty, rocky ridge above without the heavy pack. The trip can be extended to visit Pearl or Dalton Lakes or made into a loop.
