    Snake River Range Traverse

    Snake River Range Traverse Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "The Snake River Range contains the most jagged peaks, the prettiest lakes, and the best fishing streams of any mountains in southeast Idaho.

    The range is at its scenic best in mid-July, when the meadows are ablaze with colorful wildflowers, and again in late September and early October, when the hillsides are covered with the yellow, orange, and red of aspens, cottonwoods, and maples. Regardless of the season, wildlife is a common sight along the trails, including elk, moose, and black bear."
