Stevens Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Popular among weekend campers, this hike quickly leads from Interstate 90 to an area of quiet alpine lakes in the western reaches of the Bitterroot Mountains. The lakes are situated at the brink of timberline below Stevens Peak and just a ridge west of St. Regis Lakes. Stevens Peak was named in the 1800s by Captain John Mullan for Isaac Stevens, governor of Washington Territory and later a general in the Civil War. Stevens reportedly climbed the peak in 1853 to get a lay of the land. Good choice, since it’s the highest peak in the area."
