Description

A short trail up the canyon ending at spectacular Fishhook meadow deep within the Sawtooth Mountains. This Trail is also a great way to cut over to Alpine Way Trail via Alpine-Hook Cutoff trail #39. There is this special backcountry yurt! Super views await you. The yurt was built and is maintained by Sun Valley Trekking. You can rent it privately or join a guide to explore this special yurt. Contact Sun Valley Trekking (info@svtrek.com) for more info on using the yurt, otherwise, leave it be. Sadly, this trail is often overlooked and only used to gain access to Redfish Creek - Barron Creek Trail #101 .
