I’m heading out to Idaho/MT/WY for my birthday in early September. I’ve never been and I am beyond excited! We have an Airbnb in Challis for our first three nights, Gallatin Gateway for 2 nights, then Irwin 3 nights. I am looking for suggestions for some good day hikes while in these areas. We are in great shape and very experienced hikers but being from Michigan we are just a little slower in the mountains due to the elevation change. I’ll probably limit our distance per hike to around 5-6 miles due to time.
Also, if anyone has suggestions for what type of clothing gear is best for early September, that would be helpful too.
Obviously, I have been researching all of this online, but it’s always more helpful coming from first-hand experiences. I figured this would be a great resource.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
