Beautiful majestic mountains. Great scenic beauty. So much to see. Make sure you have your camera ready as the colours of these mountains are gorgeous.

Enjoyed the boat ride across Redfish Lake ($10 pp one-way, $16 pp round trip) and a fabulously beautiful hike to the Bench Lakes and back along the lake to the trail head (7 miles or so). The vistas of the Sawtooths from the trail are astounding!

There are hundreds of places to hike, camp, four-wheel, fish, ride bikes or horses...the Sawtooth Headquarters is right off the highway between Ketchum/Sun Valley & Galena Summit & offers free hiking maps & info. Harriman Trail is a great place to ride bikes!

The SNRA covers a huge area; stop at the ranger station 8 miles north of Ketchum on hwy 75. The Sawtooth wilderness has some of the best day hiking and backpacking in the country.

I've never seen or visited anything like this and it was exceptional! This is a must do for Sun Valley visitors/skiers. Take Warm Springs Road out of Ketchum about 8 miles to the Frenchman's Natural Hot Springs. Road turns to gravel. Watch for the National Park Service signs on right and river on left. It is well marked but can be easy to miss. Its on the left after the large bridge.
