Get a high start from the road and take this hike even higher on a lightly used trail that eventually follows a ridge. Savor good views of 7,000-foot peaks before dropping to campsites at a mountain lake just inside the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness. Engle Lake holds cutthroat trout and the surrounding landscape offers wildflowers and huckleberries and the option for a relatively easy sky-scraping hike extension.
