Hike to a high hidden valley housing one of the largest alpine lakes in the Sawtooth Range. Under the watchful eyes of 7742-foot Rennie Peak, an 8000plus-foot nameless neighbor and a junta of jagged pinnacles, Louis Lake’s lofty surroundings are quite stunning. But despite such a rugged setting, the trek to Louis is most agreeable. Hoof this way in early summer before the horses arrive and enjoy a dazzling floral show as an added bonus.
