Loved the hike. It is mostly sand and rocks but pretty flat. The boulders are tough. But the views are well worth it. The secret rock houses and pictographs are cool. When I went it was raining and there was no place to wait it out. The rain made the sand like quicksand. My boots sunk in and slid with every step. But, that is why we wear rain gear! Must camp in designated areas. They are pretty spread out but there are two or three places to pitch in one area.

Climbed Scotchman Peak in the early 80s as a training hike with the David Thompson Search team...I'm pretty sure Lance Schelvan and dave radetich came along on that one...

This area has unique beauty. Definitely worth taking a trip here and checking out the Bruneau Sand Dunes.

This is a fun, unique area. The hike is worth it, especially heading up to the top of the dunes. Lots of areas to picnic and make a day out of a trip to the dunes. Don't go on a windy day!

Mesa Falls is a hidden gem in Eastern Idaho. This area is so beautiful, and the falls are impressive. If you are passing through this area, you MUST check it out. You'll be surprised at the power of these falls that you've likely never heard of until now!

Selway River

Great trail for backpacking, even if it's your first time. Took my girlfriend for her first backpacking trip along this route, and she loved it. The grade is tolerable throughout the hike, as it follows the river the entire way. You can camp along the river in a few areas with sandy beaches (if you dare). Nothing better than the wild and scenic area along the Selway! You'll likely see kayakers as you hike, as this is area is world renowned for its white water.

Get route for backpacking. You follow the ridgeline for a good ways, with great views along the way. There's a natural spring near the trailhead, but not much water after that along the trail, so fill up whenever you can. If you go in July, there may still be some snow in the area along the north facing slops.

Two Mouth Lakes

This hike is stunning! I have done a lot of hiking in the NW and this one is one of the best I have done in Idaho. I have hiked it twice now, and plan on hiking it once or twice a year every year. The views of the granite mountains on the way up and once you get there are just amazing. You hike up to a saddle and descend to the lakes. If you want my advice, go to the upper lake first. Pass the lower lake and just keep following the trail. Once you are done exploring the upper lake, find the creek that leaves the lake toward the lower lake. There is a trail you can follow through a meadow all the way to the lower lake following a beautiful creek. The views of the mountains from this creek are stunning and create some of the best photo opps on the whole hike. I have uploaded photos from both hikes so you can see what it looks like. Also, one other tip. If you really want to experience all this hike has to offer, when you get to the saddle heading toward the lakes, take a right into the bushes and keep following the little trail. You will be lead out to the ridge, great views! Keep following the ridge to the top. It looks intimidating, but it's more than doable. There are some area you will need to rock climb a bit (we did it with no equipment) but it's so incredibly worth it when you get to the top. There is another lake that can be seen, not sure of the name. There is a lot to experience here, definitely worth hiking more than once!
