Head out for a day trip (or half-day trip) to Redfish Lake and Stanley, Idaho for some natural exploration. If you’d rather stay in Ketchum, we have plenty of favorite local spots for bites, drinks, adventures or relaxation.
Watch as the views go from gorgeous to breathtaking and have your camera ready when you drive just over an hour north of Knob Hill Inn to Redfish Lake. Take a hike around the lake to enjoy the majestic mountain views and exquisite lake. If you want to start on the secluded side or only hike part way, keep an eye out for the shuttle boat.
