A day hike or overnighter (which could be stretched into a two-night backpack) to several mountain lakes with fish, alpine ridge walks, and a side trip up to Baree Peak. If you don’t like to retrace your steps and you dislike the difficult two-car logistics that most one-way hikes involve, you should like this hike.The trailheads to the two lakes are only a mile apart, and the lakes are connected by a trail along the top of the Cabinet Divide.

Hiked up to the lake and fished for a while.Then me and a friend hiked the ridge above the lake for a great panoramic view of Snowshoe Peak,"A Peak",Libby and the erea surounding Libby. The easest way to go is to take a left at the fork and cross the creek.
