Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"The Boulder Canyon Trail is the most direct route into the backcountry if destinations such as Fire Hole Lakes, North Fork Lake, Halls Creek, or Europe Canyon are your goals. The trail gains only 500 feet in the first 4.5 miles up Boulder Canyon, but it rises an additional 2,000 feet for the remaining distance to Lake Vera, making it one of the more rigorous trails in the Bridger Wilderness. The final 5 miles of trail passes through forests consumed in the 1988 Fayette Fire. Campsites are scarce here, and fallen snags are likely to occasionally block the trail." Read more
