Great out and back, varying elevation, ridge line hike that is mostly forest until you reach the viewpoint at the turn around. You are rewarded with a spectacular view of Lake Pend Oreille. Trail can also be used by dirt bikers, so use caution.

5 star view, 3 star trail.

Trail is dusty and rutted out in places from motorized vehicles. But you get Huckleberries along the way and a stunning view of Lake Pend Oreille at the end.

Good out and back trail that was well maintained.. You'll get a decent workout with the inclines/declines. Mostly shaded but there are some areas without. Rewarded with great views of the lake and surrounding mountains from peak. Saw a large elk on trail.
Took me approx. 2 hrs in and 1.5 out.
NF Road 278 aka Johnson Creek rd was well maintained but does narrow down to single car width several places as it winds up the mountain.
Didn't see anyone else on trail during my hike.
