Stuart Fork to Alpine Lake

Stuart Fork to Alpine Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lovely, picturesque Alpine Lake covers the bottom of a glacier-carved slot on the ridge north of Little Granite Peak and west of the lower Stuart Fork valley. Little sunshine reaches the bottom of the steep-walled basin, and snowfields may linger around the lake until the end of July, resulting in an ecosystem one might expect to see at much higher altitudes. Along with the dramatic vertical scenery around the lake, the main attractions include abundant marsh-oriented wildflowers in the verdant little valley just below the lake, and the opportunity to explore, off-trail, the high ridge leading north to secluded Smith and Morris lakes immediately below rugged Sawtooth Mountain."
