Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Okay, this classic Washington hike includes a remote ?re lookout—in Idaho! But you have to hike across Eastern Washington backcountry to reach it. Traverse miles of high, rolling ridges carpeted in wild?owers.

Wander through one of the most impressive old-growth cedar forests this side of the Cascades. And savor incredible vistas of rugged Selkirk peaks in two states and Canada and of sprawling Priest Lake far below. This hike is located in the Salmo-Priest Wilderness in the extreme northeastern corner of the state, where you’ll be hiking through some of the last roaming grounds in the Evergreen State for grizzly bears, mountain caribou, wolves, and wolverines."
