Ship Island Lake

Classic hike and lake in the Idaho Bighorn Crags. One day for the the stout. Two days for the more casual cruiser. Carry plenty of water. There is a camp host and a water pump at Crags CG. You will be ridge hopping for the first 7 miles until you get to Genitan and Bird Bill Lakes. Dead Horse pass at Fish Fish Ridge has a set of harry switchbacks. The 2nd half is easy up and mostly down hiking. Airplane lake is a large beautiful lake on the way. Ship Island Lake is a 1.5 mile tarn lake surrounded by steep crags with goat slides. Ship Island Creek literally "dumps" into the Salmon River (Impassable). Really fun 6-8' erratic cubelike boulders sitting on a large, slick, striated granite dome at the outlet. Waterfall too. Fly fishing was superb! Rainbows, Cut Throat and California Goldens! I didn't land any fish of real size, probably due to high altitude and rocky bottomed glacier lake (not to say that they aren't in there). Yet, I caught all the pan sized fish you could want. I carry a backpacker's float tube and super light fins. The fish were nearly jumping in my tube. Goldens really put up a good fight. Camping is on the right. There were boy scouts at Airplane Lake but we saw no others for two days until a group of horse packers came in. I was amazed that they actually rode their horses down the switchbacks at dead horse pass. The wife of the group had enough sense to walk hers down:). There are some short day hikes to smaller lakes. It would be easy to set up a 5 to 10 day trip to a lot of gorgeous high mountain lakes in the immediate area. On the way out we skipped over to Harbor Lake. Make sure your tires are in good shape. We popped a tire on the way out on the granite based dirt roads that go for 55 miles.

I think the biggest feature is that it's so close and accessible. Great overlook of the valley at the top at the Cross.

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.

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.
