Smith and Morris Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"If there were a queen of the Trinity Alps, her throne would be somewhere in the vicinity of Smith Lake. Perched on a majestic bench below Sawtooth Mountain, in the granite heart of the Alps, the lake and its awesome cirque have natural wonders like a queen has jewels: a misty waterfall pours over a cliff at the inlet; the sun rises over the awesome drop of Stuart Fork; the jagged profile of Sawtooth towers overhead. Seat yourself on a slab of gray granite near the lake’s outlet, and you’ll feel like royalty indeed. Highlights: A tough off-trail hike that amply rewards the effort. Smith Lake is a gem."
