Indian Heaven Wilderness is my favorite place for fall color, and this year was exceptional with spectacular color and warm weather.
My favorite place to see fall color is at Indian Heaven. On this two night backpacking trip, we hiked in via the East Crater Trail, camped at Bear Lake, and day hiked to Lemei Rock.
Indian Heaven Wilderness is my favorite place to backpack in the fall due to the brilliant display of color. On this four day backpacking trip, we hiked the Lakes Basin loop and explored around Lemei Rock.
This longer loop to Silver Star Mountain takes the Tarbell and Sturgeon Rock trails to the summit, then returns via the Grouse Vista trail.
