This hike starts at the Roads End Trailhead in Lamoille Canyon. The road, the Lamoille Canyon Scenic Byway, is paved all the way to the parking lot making it an easy drive. This is the most popular TH in the Ruby Mountains but the parking lot only had a few cars when I arrived at 6:30am on a weekday. There are two trails leaving the TH area, one is for hikers, the other which you pass just before entering the main parking lot is a stock trail. The 2 trails merge just before reaching Lamoille Lake. The stock trail is more direct going up the northwest side of the canyon and cuts off about 0.5 miles but bypasses the forested Dollar Lakes area. It is also a steeper, rougher, trail. I took the easier recreation trail on the way up and the stock trail on the way down.

This hike really showcases the beauty of the Ruby Mountains. It has it all, a patch of conifer forest, alpine lakes, granite peaks, glacier carved canyon and distant views all on a relatively short hike.
