“A fine example of the Bitteroot National Forest in the Stevensville area.”— samh Haraldson
The climb toward Sweeney Lake is on a wonderful trail that passes through a diverse set of flora that changes with each foot of elevation gained. The trail is dotted with short side paths that step out onto rocky promontories providing views down and across valley.
Multiple lakes toward the end of the trail provide for a variety of good camping. There is plenty of room for as many people wish to camp so finding your own space and solitude isn't a problem. Exploration for day trips as well as fishing will keep the leisurely or busy-body camper full of things to do.
