    Stunning views of the surrounding mountains along the route and the lake is so beautiful, great for swimming and fishing. The trail climbs nearly 1000 feet but most of the ascent is mellow. Lots of dead trees and overgrown places around the lake, so some bushwhacking might be necessary if you want to explore.

    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.

    "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." Read more
