Old Man Point Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Old Man Point is one of the many inconspicuous 5,000-foot mountains that surround the lower Lochsa River. Although it lacks the scenic qualities of other peaks in the Wilderness Gateway area, Old Man Point remains an intriguing choice for quiet wilderness seclusion. Many poignant reminders of the 1934 Pete King Fire still haunt the landscape along this trail, such as the pockets of fire-blackened snags that loom like specters in the Big Stew drainage.

The trail initially climbs a fern-cloaked ridgeline west of the Wilderness Gateway Campground and emerges at a fine overlook of the Lochsa River and its immediate surroundings. With a soft but uneven dirt trail underfoot, you amble south through shady cedars and moist hardwoods."
