The Marcus Trail should provide you and your pup with a lonely trek into the heart of the Kettles. The view alone from Copper Butte is worth the journey. The entire Kettle Range can be observed from the old lookout site. BC’s Rossland Range, Idaho’s Selkirks and western Washington’s Cascades can all be seen from this prominent peak. But it is the miles of alpine meadows on the way to the summit that really make this a supreme hike, one of my all-time favorites in the entire Inland Northwest.
