FishingGreat!Muddy

Honestly, I was a little disappointed...but perhaps my expectations were too high? I came here for a Labor Day weekend fly-fishing trip, and thought it would be good to take this trail to head further upriver from the end of the road to a more secluded fishing area. I was surprised that I had to hike about two miles before coming to an area with relatively convenient fishing access. The hike followed the river, but stayed well above it most of the way (with limited views), hence the disappointment. Also, the trail was surprisingly muddy in places despite being late summer after a long dry spell. HOWEVER, I caught the two biggest fish of my life in a section of river off this trail, so I definitely did not regret the hike. Plus, lots of social distancing with this hike!

HikingBugsGreat!

we stayed at the lookout aug 21-23. The trail and lookout were lovely, as described by others. But I have to give a warning to anyone headed up soon. We’ve done dozens of hike in north Idaho and I’ve never seen anything like this. I noticed most of the plants completely stripped of their greenery, and after a little bit I figured out why. There are thousands of fuzzy caterpillars eating everything. Not a big deal, until partially through the hike we started getting itchy. Turns out if you brush up against them their barbs can sting and break off in your clothes causing tons of itchy spots like hives. No other bugs around, no mosquitos, it’s definitely these guys. Please wear long non- knitted sleeves and pants, it’s worth it.

Fantastic trail! A couple of great views of Mallard Peak and of the lookout on top. We turned SW just north of Mallard Lake and hiked over toward Northbound Lake, which provided amazing views of the mountain ranges to the south. Some north facing snow packs still visible as well. Several downed trees, some of which had to be hiked around. Aside from that, the trails are in excellent condition. Camped above Northbound and then returned by the same route. God is so awesome!!

The trail has just been worked on by the forest service so it’s in great shape. Saw one mountain goat on the top.

Great trail! Beautiful drive up the the trail head which is located a few hundred feet before the NF road gate. The beginning of the trail is rather dig out from motor bike use, but we didn’t see any active use. Just a slight ankle biter at the beginning. The forest is beautiful and hiking the spine to Arid Peak is quite shady with awesome lookouts to the north. Highly recommend!

Fun hike up to a nice view point overlooking the river. The trail is nicely maintained until it isn't. There is no real stopping point it just becomes a very narrow trail with a lot of vegetation. This is probably past the 2 mile mark.

HikingGreat!

Great hike I don't know what was worse? Going up or coming back. LoL Up hill both ways. Outstanding views from the tower but the hike is mostly in the trees with limited views very dry with no water except the little bit of snow pack near the top. The flying friends where pretty mild today. My milage came up with 9.2 ml so maybe a bit longer than the post? Still a great hike. Four Star hike Five Star Views! The best part of the hike other than the views I was the only person within miles its pretty rare to get a trail all to you're self ;)

Couldn't find the road to the TH on Saturday 7/18. So one star only because of that.

Really enjoyed, poor gps quality as you can see from the map. Told us it was about 6.5 miles, unsure on the accuracy. Very lush and green right now, beautiful. Would recommend.

Hiked up to the lookout today, trail was still covered in a lot of snow for a good portion of it, we were able to navigate the gap in the trees and make it all the way to the lookout. Stayed for awhile and had lunch by the campfire, got to peek in the window of the lookout.

2nd time. Took all of my daughters (minus one) this time. Still didn't make it to the end but had a terrific time. Love this easy trail.

I chose this trail because I wanted to start with an easy trail as I work my way back into hiking. It is indeed an easy trail but it is also in bear country. After hiking 2 miles in by myself I began to pass several large bones. Once I got to bones that still had meat on them I decided to turn around. The only wildlife I saw was deer. And that’s all I wanted to see. I did not realize it was bear country until I went back into the town of Avery and saw the pictures on the wall.

A good easy trail for most folks. We went about 3 miles with a toddler in a pack and two dogs. First several miles are very rocky and were pretty washed out from recent rains. Lots of horse poop from pack horses heading back and forth from the lodge. We ran across a Mama Moose and her Baby just off the trail in some pretty moosy water. Thankfully, some horse riders came up and were able to get her a little further off the trail so we could pass. Lots of flowers though and the St. Joe is always gorgeous. Oh, it was reported at the trail that there had been recent bear activity further up the trail, I don't think we went far enough to even get into that.

app brought me to the wrong spot and had to walk up a huckleberry hill to get to the trail besides that the trail was beautiful. I did get off the path for a little while I didnt see the trail that they took but just made it a little longer.

Took trail 11 to Fawn Lake with a stop up to Mallard Peak along the way, lots of mosquitoes, great fishing. Fawn Lake is worth the hike. It’s beautiful. Not too many other hikers on the trail. Great trails to backpack through!

Like others I found it confusing in finding the forest road that leads to the trailhead. Thanks to my Garmin app however I was able to zoom in and figure out where to cross the river. There is a bridge opposite the turnoff for the Hiawatha trail. From Wallace this is about 20 miles down that road that leads to Avery. Once on the west side of the river the TH isn't more than 8 miles or so on a decent gravel road. Signage in Idaho both for forest roads and trailheads is quite poor. The only signs along the trail were two of the exact same thing at the junction where you meet the ridge trail that goes on up to the lookout. And these two signs appeared to be printed on an inkjet printer and inserted in plastic envelopes. Laughable. The hike was very nice and huckleberries were plentiful for the first half mile or so up the trail. There were some fairly steep stretches but nothing too difficult. I logged 1.2 miles to the junction and then another 1.5 to the lookout. Be careful on the way down that you do not overshoot that left turn as there is no signage for that direction of hiking and if you are not paying attention you can go several miles toward Avery. There was no one at the lookout when I reached it and it was actually unlocked so I had my lunch inside out of the wind and sun. The views are very good although many trees have grown since this was built and there is some obstruction in various directions. This looks like a neat place to spend a night or two but you need to either pack in all of your water or hike down a very steep trail about 0.5 mile to a spring and then back up with the heavy containers. I did see bear scat along the trail containing huckleberries but did not encounter any wildlife. Definitely hike this with a firearm.
