Admire nearby lofty peaks while roaming miles of parkland meadows on a high ridge that parts two forks of the wild Pasayten River. Walk this way in midsummer and be dazzled by a wide array of blossoming beauties. Lupine, paintbrush, cinquefoil, aster, monkey flower, and an array of louseworts all add their strokes to this alpine easel. And Silver Lake? It’s a wonderful backcountry body of water tucked in a basin beneath 7850-foot Pasayten Peak.
