This trail offers panoramic views of the Sawtooth National Forest and much of the Boise National Forest. This trail provides access to Ten Mile Ridge Trail #157, which, in turn, provides access to the Sawtooth Wilderness. There are no sources of water along this trail, so be sure to bring plenty of water.
Since many of the creeks may be dry by mid-summer, carry a day’s supply of safe drinking water. The recommended amount is one gallon per person, per day.
Treat stream water - Giardia is a serious water borne disease. Use a water filter that will screen for Giardia or boil all water for three minutes.
Every visitor shares the responsibility to keep the backcountry unspoiled and beautiful. Pack out what you pack in. For more information on minimum impact camping visit lnt.org.
Expect to meet other hikers, stock users, mountain bikers, and motorcyclists at your destination, especially during the weekend periods.
Wildfire is always a concern. Keep campfires well contained and never leave a campfire unattended. Extinguish all smoking materials properly.
