If you prefer to cover ground horizontally rather than vertically – savoring the views, exploring high alpine basins, or catching a fish or two – Sawtooth Mountain Guides can plan the perfect hiking or backpacking trip. For those looking to push beyond the typical day hike destinations but aren’t thrilled by the prospect of a heavy pack, we offer portered multi-day hiking trips.

The 217,000 acre Sawtooth Wilderness is a hiker’s dream come true. There are 350 miles of trail and over 400 alpine lakes to explore, all hemmed in by jagged peaks and glacially-sculpted terrain. Closer to Sun Valley, the Pioneer Mountains are the dramatic peaks that form the backdrop of the famous resort. A bit off the beaten path, the Pios reward adventurous hikers with alpine meadows, above-treeline lakes, jaw-dropping vistas.
