Max elevation: 4895 ft
Happy New Year! And what better way to kickoff 2016, then with a winter hike into the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness and, specifically, Bass Creek Falls. The hike is relatively easy at a length of 3.25 miles to the Falls and an elevation gain of slightly more than 1000 feet. The views along the trail are outstanding with Saint Joe and Bass Peak looming over the canyon. The trail was in really great shape with packed snow and almost no ice (yeah, I hate wearing cleats).
