A Fun and Leisurely Pack trip

The Lake Alice pack trip is a wonderful option for first-timers to the backcountry who like creature comforts, and a little less time in the saddle. It’s also an essential trip for serious fly-fishers looking to complete their Wyoming Cutt Slam with the only known pure strain of naturally reproducing Bonneville cutthroat trout!

Lake Alice is the largest natural lake found in the western portion of Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest. The lake lies at 7,745 feet elevation and is surrounded by national forest and several species of wildlife including elk, moose, and mule deer.

Lake Alice Packtrip Details

A Day In Camp

The Lake Alice Pack trip sets out from Tri Basin Divide trailhead. We saddle the horses and ride out about 2.5 hours to camp where you’ll sleep for the duration of your trip. Each morning we get started around 8 am when your guides get the horses ready and we all discuss plans over breakfast. Your itinerary on this trip is up to you! Day trip opportunities include fly fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing on horseback or just hanging out at camp. Species of wildlife likely to be seen on the Lake Alice trip include elk, mule deer, black bear, and Shiras moose. Lake Alice is remarkable in that it is home to the only known pure lake strain of naturally reproducing Bonneville cutthroat trout. Fish from the shore or get out on the lake on a boat or a tube. If you’re a serious fly-fisher this is the place to complete your Wyoming Cutt Slam!
