A large, trout-filled subalpine lake deep in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. The jagged peaks of this portion of the Bitterroots are the highest mountains in the entire range, which stretches more than 300 miles along Montana’s western border. This hike will take you in to see some of the more interesting peaks of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, such as El Capitan, the Lonesome Bachelor, and the Como Peaks.
