It's only 30 minutes from town to the wilderness, you don't need all day to get out and see some breathtaking mountains and hike around the beaver ponds. This could be Elko's best kept secret.

Lamoille Canyon very reminiscent of Yellowstone. Drove to end and hiked Island Lake Trail. About an hour uphill to the Lake. Cascades and snow! Trail in great condition.

Coming from Europe the word forest created expectations! The trees are small and sparcec but the views are incredible. We journeyed all day through Lamoille and up into the hills and then high into the Rubies. It was a day not to be missed.

Gets a bit crowded during Utah's pioneer days, but other than that, it's a gorgeous alpine environment. Several hikes are available. I've seen a herd of sheep from the uppermost trailhead. Enjoy!

In th mountains of Lamoille, it would be quite cold, typically. It's quite alpine and could be nice for snowshoeing.
