At Henry’s Lake, fishing is far from the only way to stay busy. It’s an adventure town, perfect for visitors who love to haul out their waders and hiking boots to find their place in nature.
You’ll come across grizzlies, bald eagles, and wildflowers. Where Henry’s Lake hikes beat the rest is in terms of wildlife, because deer, elk, and moose move through its narrow pass constantly. This means more animals and easier sightings. Kids get to have their own wild adventures with campfire programs and guided hikes.
When you’re staying at Island Park Idaho hotels in spring, nothing beats a drive along the Continental Divide Scenic Trail while the national forests are coming alive for the warm season. Anglers from across the west come to Henry’s Lake to put on their lucky waders and fish for brook, hybrid trout, and cutthroat at this time of year.
When the snow falls, Henry’s Lake becomes a deep snow zone, and if you’re feeling energetic, you can travel to Montana’s Yellowstone for cross country skiing that suits your talents, from beginner to expert. The Rendezvous ski trails in West Yellowstone can be accessed by road and there are few areas in the US that give you Nordic skiing that comes with groomed trails and rolling beauty quite as spectacular. And of course, endless miles of snowmobile trails.
There is only one word to describe fall at Henry’s Lake: Trout. These are the months to take advantage. Island Park Idaho cabin rentals give people the chance to bag the catch of their lifetimes.
