There are two clusters of cirque lakes with excellent fishing amid the grandeur of the northern Lemhi Mountains. The lakes are beneath the pyramidal Lem Peak (10,986 feet), in an area abundant with wildlife, including mountain goats.

This is a nice solitary trail. There are lots of possibilities for on- and off-trail exploration of smaller lakes and minor peaks from a base camp at Bear Valley Lake.
