At 7,960 feet, Stuart Peak is one of the Rattlesnake's highest points, offering

great views of adjacent peaks and the Missoula Valley. There's no designated trail

to the peak, but you can reach it by traveling cross-country for about a mile.

From this vantage point, you can drop down to Twin Lakes or get back on the

trail and head farther into the high country.

The trail continues northward past the Lake Creek drainage, which contains six

lakes, and then descends past three more lakes into the Wrangle Creek

drainage, where it joins the main travel corridor 15 miles for the trailhead.

Most of the high-country lakes have been stocked with cutthroat trout.

However, there are no fish in Twin Lakes or Farmer's Lakes.

You'd be wise to carry plenty of water on this hike. It's demanding, and you can't

always count on finding water along the way. If you do drink surface water, the

Forest Service recommends that you boil or filter it first.

Directions:

Rattlesnake Trailhead is located near the end of Rattlesnake Dr.
