Trout and Big Fisher Lakes Hike

The husband and wife duo of Eric and Celeste Grace will lead participants to Trout Lake (3 miles from trailhead), a beautiful alpine lake that’s bustling with trout and surrounded by terrific mountain views. Participants can then choose to enjoy recreation time at the lake or continue on a steeper path to the surrounding ridge line and then down a steep 600 ft drop in elevation to Big Fisher Lake (another 2.25 miles) below. An optional bouldering route up from the Big Fisher Lake makes the upper lake hike into a partial loop and avoids the switchback climb back up to the ridge. Fantastic views of the Kootenai Valley and River, Selkirk Crest and two stunning lakes await hardy hikers.
