I have just returned from hiking the Smith and Morehouse trial all the way to Island Lake. It is on of my favorite trials to backpack on. I like it so much that I return at least every year and do it again. For most of the hike it is an easy slow sloped hill, but you will come to a few steep parts. My favorite thing to do is camp by the river the follows the the trail for almost the whole way, it is good fishing. Every time I go I see a lot of wild game along the trail, like moose, deer and even a few elk. Also along the trial about a half hour walk is a nice Beaver dam. As you will near the top of the trail you can view the lake, it is beautiful almost at tree line the lake sits neastled at the bottom of a huge boulder mountain and this early in the year there is almost always snow the comes down the mountain almost to the the lake. This trail should be hike by all outdoor lovers! Its a good one!
