HikingGreat!

One of my favorite hikes! 360° views! Took a friend who doesn't hike and she had no problems making it to the top.

If approaching from Metaline area, you can't access trailhead. Road to trailhead closed 6.3 miles ahead of trailhead. Sign posted "Arden Tree Farms No Vehicle Access". Violators will be prosecuted to fullest extent of law etc. Dang diasapointing after 30 miles of forest service road. Must approach from Silver Creek road, ie, from south.

HikingGreat!

We were the only car at the trail head at 11 AM. The last 3 miles of the road really need a high profile vehicle. A car could make it but you are going to do some scraping. Trail was in great shape, most of the blow downs have been removed. Huckleberries were loaded at about mile 2. There is a cache at the top if you would like to drop off a trinket. Bugs were not much of a problem. View from the top is amazing.

fabulous hike!! great variety on the trail and beautiful panoramic views at the top! the road up is a little tricky, but doable even for low clearance if you’re brave enough. a bit steep up to the peak, but worth it to scamper around the rocks and explore the rock structures other have built along with the old lookout.

This trail did not disappoint! Like other reviewers said do bring bug spray, thankfully we had some and didn't get affected much. Towards the top it does get a wee bit rocky so do be careful and the summit is nothing but rock. The view is absolutely amazing, it's worth the treck up there. Tons of bees at the top but they were pretty friendly, had one land on me a few times, it's like it just wanted to know what I was and if I had water. There is a few creeks that you have to pass over but it's nothing but refreshing for the doggies. Parking... we parked down the road due to the wash out, people were brave enough to drive passed it. The road, pretty good till you got towards the top... my best advice, do not take your lower sitting car like we did... ouch lol.

Abercrombie Mountain is one of my favorite hikes! The wild flowers in the meadows near the summit were in bloom, and it's always a great view from the top. Great way to kick off training for September. A couple things to note: The NFS road ended a few hundred feet short of the trail head because of a large ditch (it looks like someone got stuck and spun it out) and some tape that kept us from going further. The trail has a few downed trees, but they're easy to duck under or step over. The mosquitoes are wild right now and since I didn't bring any spray, I left with a lot of bites on my arms. Also, the log book at the summit is basically filled out. It's the second filled book in the cache at the summit, so if anyone wants to bring a new one up, that'd be great.

Great trail, still quite a few trees down on the trail but definitely passable. Views from the top were amazing, even with the clouds.

The road to the trail head is cleared, and the trail is hike-able, made it the top. Lots of storm damaged downed trees, cleared what I could. What a marvelous hike.

Three stars only because we didn’t get to hike it. Road was open though but not accessible from about the trailhead to summit. Went up this morning, almost got to the trailhead but way too much snow. Along the road to the trailhead we had to move and even cut down several trees that had fallen and were blocking the road.. A saw and axe would be handy to have along in your car. Definitely not the month to go up, wait a few more. Took us about 2.5 hours from north Spokane going through Colville and Aladdin Rd / Deep Lake. With a hike, breaks and eating, driving back, probably plan for a full day. Looks great and a fun adventure though.

There is still snow on the trail so I didnt get very far before turning back because I started so late. Which is a bummer considering the road to the trail head is primitive bit mostly well maintained. From what I did experience was a great trail, mostly incline but well marked. Just better to go later in the season to avoid snow

Great hike, not too steep. The road leading in to the trailhead is rough, but you can easily get to it in a car, we took a Focus. The views from the top are absolutely amazing!

What a perfect Sunday funday hiking Abercrombie Mountain north of Colville! It’s the second highest peak in Eastern Washington (by one little foot in elevation) at 7,310 feet. We saw fresh bear scat, tracks and scratches in a tree but sadly never saw our bear. I haven’t seen a view that spectacular since Scotchman Peak last summer. Highly recommended!

Nice hike but I'll have to go back do to the weather being pretty socked in I really couldn't take advantage of the views but what I was able to see was great. Pretty good incline but fairly short distance well worth the time.

The road up was a little treacherous for the mid sized sedan rental car that I took (luckily it was a rental). But once we got to the trail, we were not disappointed. Beautiful pine forests cloaked the area in a thick pine scent that cannot be beat. Small waterfalls and cool mountain streams offered relief from the moderate heat encountered in the first couple miles. I was there in mid June and there were still patches of snow on the last mile or so with very large drifts at the peak. The view at the top was unbeatable. It was a little chilly at the top so expect to bring a sweatshirt if you plan on staying for an extended period of time. If I ever find myself in the area again, this is a definite. Note that the coordinates supplied by AllTrails aren't accurate. Stay left and follow the signs for the trail head.

Road to Trailhead is ok until last mile, three large ruts and my friends mid size SUV scraped going out. Arrived early Sunday morning of Labor Day weekend to a empty TH., maybe five cars on return several hours later. Great well maintained trail that's recently had some work and weed whacking done. Trail switchbacks up and just enough shade along the trail, except the last mile to provide relief from the heat. Pretty hazy from the smoke but all and all great hike with stellar views.

I loved this hike – keep in mind, I’m new to the hiking world this year.. so others may think differently 1st – the gravel road leading to the trail.. if you have a family van, or small car, you might rethink this trail – it’s not a bad road, but some vehicles might have some issues. 2nd – Amazing hike – this trail has a little of everything, deep wooded areas, vast open areas and amazing views everywhere you look. The peak of this trail is loose rock, so smaller kids, or older individuals might have a rough time with it. 3rd – this is a trail I will be hiking every year now – it’s great
