Be forewarned: A visit to the Alpine and Sawtooth lakes may make you want to never return home. This trek breathes Sawtooth Mountains – soaring peaks, wildflower meadows, towering Douglas fir forest, crystal-clear creeks, and cobalt-blue lakes all case within a world of granite. Although this hike is one of the more popular routes in the Sawtooth Wilderness, it would be a travesty to travel to Stanley and not see how amazingly beautiful a 10-mile walk can be.
