Crowell Ridge

Crowell Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"This is a scenic, mostly treeless ridge hike in the Salmo-Priest Wilderness that involves about a mile of off-trail navigation through slopes of beargrass and talus to reach Gypsy Peak and Watch Lake. A shorter route to Gypsy Peak begins at Bear Pasture, but it is no match in scenery for the Crowell Ridge hike described here.

Roads could be the limiting factor for some hikers. The road to Bear Pasture is closed to motorized vehicles from August 15 to November 20 each year and impassable to most passenger cars even when the gate is open. The road to the Sullivan Mountain Trailhead is very poor with water bars that could bump the bottoms of cars with low clearance."
