Shaw Twin Lakes, Payette National Forest

Scroll down to content

This hike is what John Platt refers to as not really a hike but more like a stroll in your back yard.  It’s off the beaten path but close to home and know mostly to only the locals.  From my door at home you can be standing on the lakes edge in about an hour and not really work up a sweat.    And yet, it’s quite beautiful and offers the solitude of much more difficult adventures!





Tons of wildlife too!  A mother grouse protecting her babies!


And amazingly enough, this extraordinary rare image of a young bear cub swimming in the lake!!!!
