This undulating ridge hike leads to a breathtaking view down an almost vertical cliff 3,000 feet above scenic Lake Pend Oreille. Big sailboats and cabin cruisers look like specks below. The town of Hope is a smudge in the distance surrounded by peaks in the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains. Beware: cumulative elevation gain for this hike is 1,650 feet.

Nice trail, but steeper than the profile appears in the description. We hiked it after the first snowfall of the year and other than a number of deadfalls to climb over/through, there were no problems. The highest altitude is around 5200 ft and is reached about the middle of the hike. The summit of Green Monarch Peak is just over 5000 ft. Beautiful views of the Clark Fork Delta and Lake Pend Oreille.

Beautiful trail with amazing views of Lake Pend Orielle. The elevation gain is spread out so it is not too challenging. Highly recommend this hike.
