Beautiful hike! The trail to Schafer Peak was grown over but the rest of the trails were great! 13km total from parking spot to base of Schafer peak and back.
This is a beautiful hike. We did in october right after the first light snowfall and it was a little bit treacherous on some of the steeper sections (and there some rather steep sections). Definitely worth the effort to stand on the cliffs overlooking lake Pend Oreille.
