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."

"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."

This is a great trail to take the kids. It's pretty accessible and does not have a huge elevation gain. The views from beginning to end are absolutely amazing. This hike really is not that hard, but it's still an amazing site to be seen. Great lake to hike into and stay the night. Trail is well taken care of and lake was very clean.

This is a great trail, can be strenuous at times and not very good for the knees. On the path you'll get to see a waterfall and once you reach the lake you'll discover a marshy creek that runs off it. The scenery is unforgettable, you'll want to take everyone you know to see it! Be aware that the altitude is very high, it never is warm enough to go swimming, and be sure to take a wind jacket as the breeze is very chilly.
