Revett Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a short, easy hike to a clear mountain lake above an area that was heavily mined beginning in 1882 when gold was discovered in Prichard Creek. The hike is especially popular with beginning backpackers and families. Small brook trout can be caught in the lake and huckleberries begin to ripen here in late July."
--Rich Landers & Spokane Mountaineers, 100 Hikes in the Inland Northwest (The Mountaineers Books).
"Yet another aquatic jewel located high along the Bitterroot Divide that separates Idaho from Montana, pretty little Revett Lake is nestled in a bowl below 6814-foot Granite Peak. The lake’s surroundings are subalpine; ridges of talus and meadows rise above the tranquil body of water, forests of fir and spruce ring the rocky shoreline. This is as beautiful a spot as any in the Bitterroots. But you don’t have to earn it—the hike to Revett is one of the easiest in these parts."
