This leisurely trail begins at the Redfish Lake Lodge. After you park your car, set foot on the trailhead which will lead you to a fork. The left trail takes you on a brief detour to a pretty overlook before rejoining the main Fishhook Creek Nature Trail (which you can take directly via the right at the fork). From here, you and your pup can wag along the clearly-marked path which meanders along a babbling creek. Plenty of shade is offered by the towering pine trees overhead. There is a steady climb about 0.7 miles in length, but nothing too strenuous. Do not cross the bridge, or you'll be taken on a longer hike around Redfish Lake.
Continue on the well-marked path until you reach the beautiful and vast Fishhook Creek Meadow, which has barktastic views on the craggy peaks of the Sawtooth Mountains that tower over 10,000+ feet high. This is your chance to take out your camera and snap some photos of your furry canine with the wild, mountainous backdrop! Continue a little further up the meadow to reach a small waterfall and beaver dam clearing.
Now's the pawfect opportunity to take out a couple of tasty treats for your pooch, and for yourself, to enjoy. Take in a deep woof of fresh air while you soak up the Sun Valley and Sawtooth Mountain views with your best furiend!
