Strong hikers can enjoy outstanding views of the Pioneer Peaks while hiking this challenging and little-used trail. This hike begins on the trail to beautiful Boulder Lake, a popular destination for day hikers. At a higher elevation, three tiny lakes, including Washington Lake, lie above Boulder Lake awaiting the adventuresome hiker. Be sure to bring wading shoes for the creek crossing.
Drive east on Sun Valley – Trail Creek Road for 22.5 miles to Copper Basin Road. Turn right and after 2 miles turn right again onto Wildhorse Road. Drive 5.5 miles to an informal camping area on the right and park. The sign beside the road indicates, "Boulder Cr. Tr." Allow about 1 hour 10 min. driving time from Ketchum.
