The proposed Cube Iron-Silcox Wilderness area of the southern Cabinet Mountains offers miles of great backcountry romps into a lightly traveled region. Lofty summits, alpine meadows and lakes, and a good trail system characterize this roadless area just north of Thompson Falls.
Hikers and their dogs will find a number of trails and destinations to their liking. Cabin Lake stands out as one of the supreme choices in this de facto wilderness. The hike to Cabin Lake, one of the largest bodies of water within the Cube Iron-Silcox, is pretty straightforward. From the trailhead take Trail 459 right across a sturdy bridge.
