Thinking of taking my 9 year old daughter into Merriam Lake for a little one night backpacking trip. I've been on Mt Idaho from the other side and always wanted to camp or at least check out this beautiful lake. Questions, It seems like a pretty short hike (2 miles, a little more?), but how steep is it and is there an established trail? How is the fishing there(I'm a love'em and leave'em type, so anything I catch I'll be returning to the lake). Also, is the trail head the same one that you use when you climb leatherman from the backside? Any comments would be appreciated.
One last thing, is the route to this lake discussed in Lopez's climbing Idaho book?
