Grassy Top Mountain Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A peak named Grassy Top? What graminivorous (I did not make this word up!) canine can resist hiking to this herbaceous heaven? With only 1000 feet of mellow climbing, I can’t imagine too many can. The trail to Grassy Top is one of the easiest ridge hikes in this book, suitable for young pups, old hounds, and every age in between.

However, there’s no water along the way, so be sure that you’re both well-equipped. The trip to Grassy Top is straightforward. Starting with a short drop from the road, the trail enters an old-growth forest of spruce and fir. It soon crosses the headwaters of Pass Creek. Other than lingering snow, this will be your only water along the way."

"This 7.6-mile hike quickly climbs a tall ridge and then traverses across its top to a broad high point. From Grassy Top, the view into Idaho is supreme—ridge after ridge rolls into the distance. Grizzly bears, moose, elk, gray wolves, and woodland caribou dwell in this wild corner of the state." Read more
