Cha-paa-qn is Salish for treeless peak or shining peak. It is the prominent pyramid-shaped mountain on Missoula’s western horizon in the Lolo National Forest. Three trails climb to Reservation Divide and ascend the talus rock summit of Cha-paa-qn: the Sleeping Woman Trail, the Reservation Divide East Trail (Hike 50), and the Kennedy Creek Trail. The Sleeping Woman Trail—this trail—is the shortest but steepest route to the 7,996-foot peak. The trail climbs through a pine and fir forest above Stony Creek Canyon to Reservation Divide. The last half mile to the summit is a slow-moving scramble over scree. From the summit above the timberline are far-reaching, 360-degree vistas of the Bitterroot Mountains; the Mission, Swan, Sapphire, Cabinet, and Bison Ranges; and the Rattlesnake and Great Burn Wilderness Areas.
