Bench Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"This beautiful ridgeline walk above Redfish Lake leads to five-plus lakes nestled below Mount Heyburn. Park at the Redfish Trailhead and follow the path across the road to where the Fishhook Creek Trail begins. At 0.6 mile there is a junction with the Bench Lakes Trail.

Turn left here and follow the trail across a bridge over Fishhook Creek. The trail winds up the ridge overlooking Redfish Lake until it finally maintains a straight path parallel to the lake. This stretch is an enjoyable walk. On the right (west) are views of Sawtooth peaks: Heyburn Mountain, Horstmann Peak, and the Grand Mogul."
