Hiking Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness

This trail would be especially good for a beginning backpacker. The hike isn't too long, the elevation is gradual, and there's a good mix of great scenery - first the gorge of Gorge Creek, then Swan Peak, and finally the beautiful cirgue at Sunburst Lake. Drawbacks - limited access to water along the way, limited number of campsites (though there certainly are spots you could bushwhack down to Gorge Creek), and a trailhead at least two hours from a main highway.
