Join us for a lake-to-lake traverse of the Sawtooth Wilderness. We will backpack on and off trail, up to 10 miles and 3,000 feet cumulative elevation gain per day. This trip is semi-exploratory; we have hiked and/or skied about 90% of our planned route.

Participants must be fit, have lightweight backpacking gear (our packs will weigh less than 25 pounds for this 6-day trip with one bad weather/rest day for a total of 7 days), and be prepared to ford streams.

We will leave Boise on Thursday, July 21, shuttle a vehicle, and car camp. From Friday July 21 - Thursday July 28 we'll be in the wilderness.

The trailheads are about a 3.5 hour drive from Boise and are accessible to passenger cars. No campfires and no dogs, please.
