HikingGreat!

This hike was a lot of fun. I left the ski lodge at 6pm and took the main trail to the top. There were gorgeous wildflowers and the trail wasn’t too crowded. The overlook a mile and a half in is incredible. I got to the top around 8 and was able to just run down the ski runs. I’d highly recommend!

Only made it to chicken out ridge. That was more than I was prepared for. Going down is almost as hard as going up. 4 hours to COR 3 hours back to car. Did not need as much water or snacks as was recommended. Bring some kind of gloves. Brrr the wind nipped at my fingers Trekking pokes were great for both up and down. Most everyone started at 5 am

I did Three Bears instead of Central Ridge on the way down, but either way, the other 2/3rds were great! You can’t go wrong here if you’re looking for a good low foothills loop.

The trail from Alpine to Sawtooth was just about a mile, very rocky, but easy for experienced hikers. We camped at the very beginning of Sawtooth Lake, right at the log jam. The dead elk there no longer stinks and you can’t really see it from the trail. Sawtooth was pretty, but I think Alpine is the real attraction. Lots of people even during the week. 8/3-8/4

Excellent hike with amazing views even though we did about 75% of it in rain (sprinkles to heavy). We’re flatlanders from Iowa and had no problem left at 1400 and back by 1930. It was our only chance to go and I’m really glad we did.

Beautiful hike with lots of wildflowers and some good access to the river. We saw deer and other smaller wildlife. Start early not as much shade as there used to be.

HikingNo shade

(Hiked on 6-22-20). Definitely start early or go late! No shade. Trailhead is on the left of Hwy 21, just past the Hilltop Cafe. You'll walk past a couple of barns/sheds on private property, but the trail continues past them. This would be a great trail for birders! Saw 6 kestrels, several lazuli buntings, a couple of western tanangers, and red tailed hawks. The hike is a consistent uphill grade to test your legs and aerobic capacity. Lots of lupine in June. Saw two bull snakes. The mine itself is cool! There's an abandoned hawk's nest at the top, and lots of marmots and chipmunks scurrying around. There was water in the creek at the mine itself (in June), which made the dog happy. Only three other hikers on a weekday. Nice view!

Love this trail, very wide and well maintained. Saw some cows and calves along the trail. Trail head can be either the parking lot or the fence with the chain. The loop is a mile in and is about 1.5 miles long.

Backpacking

(Backpacked on 7-31-20 to 8-1-20)) Of course the trail is spectacular. These are the Sawtooths! The first 2.5 miles are pretty gradual with quite a bit of of shade and many opportunities for the dog to cool off in the nearby creek. The final 2.5 miles include steeper switchbacks, but hopefully you'll be so distracted by the exposed granite teeth for which this mountain range is named to care about the physical exertion. You'll climb above emerald-toned Alpine Lake and arrive at a pond, but keep going to reach Sawtooth Lake. It's an enchanting sapphire blue under the high-noon sun. I'd love to give this hike 5 stars, but now for the bad news: 1) This trail is POPULAR and sees a lot of pressure in the summer. Be prepared for crowds. Go on a weekday if you can. 2) There were two dead elk in the lake, one at the first sight of the lake on the log jam, and another good-sized bull elk farther down the trail against the bank. They created a stench of death in the air, especially in the hot wind. 3) Our dog found three sites of human poop, each hastily covered with some sticks or with a rock. The first was right next to the trail, and the other two were right next to our clearly established tent sites. People: when you need to go poop, do so off the trail, outside of the camping areas, and bury it in the ground! Pack out toilet paper. That's just gross. 4) A guy was using a drone which added an annoying amount of noise pollution to our supposed serene experience. But we asked him if he was aware drones were illegal in the wilderness area, and he said he was unaware and promptly stopped. We didn't hear it the rest of the time we were there. 5) Only half of the dog owners we saw abided by the leash rule in effect from July 1st - Labor Day. 6) When we got back to the trailhead the next day, the parking lot was overflowing. We counted over 50 vehicles OUTSIDE of the designated trailhead parking area, all over the vegetation on the side of the road and some had run into "no camping" signs. I am so sad that the same people coming to enjoy the location are also the ones destroying it. On the plus side, the moonrise over the mountains was pink and lovely!

HikingBugsScramble

This hike was one of the hardest hikes I have ever done because it is straight up the entire way. Also the scramble was a little difficult especially with all of the people. We started at about 7am and I didn’t get back to trailhead till about 3pm. The hike up took me 4hours then I sat for awhile at the summit. The views were indescribable and worth all the pain!

Nice little hike with a lot of shade and wildflowers. it was so green up there! The trailhead was hard to find at first as there isn't really any signs. We parked and then walked up the dirt road and started walking on this one trail we saw passed a locked fence.. I'm assuming that was it lol.

Hiking

This is my second trip in a month and love it just as much. The road had been regraded since and taken any difficulty out of driving a car up it. There is a lot of traffic on the road to the trailhead and it can be very dusty from off-roaders, campers and huckleberry pickers. The view of the south lets you see everything missing from your view at North Chilco. If you have the time and water, I highly recommend South Chilco.

best hike in all of Spokane area, you can see everything from airway heights to cda once you're at the top. absolutely gorgeous at sunset. do not be afraid of the no parking and no trespassing signs the people beyond the gate are actually quite friendly. there is only 2 houses you pass on the log road going up they dont mind you as long as you are respectful. I've been on this hike 15+ times and reccomend it to everyone who enjoys hiking.

Good trail. Mildly busy about the first mile of the trail, but not many people after that. Pretty wildflowers, pretty creek, and huckleberry bushes right next to trail. Hike as far out or as little as you want before turning around. Not the best views of the mountains and a little buggy.

Great hike but long! The incline is pretty mild most of the way with a few exceptions. Alpine lake was the highlight for us! However, the sun was not out once we made it to Sawtooth Lake.

9am start still pretty late! Beautiful on the way out, but hot hot hot on the way back. Some spots are getting a bit overgrown, but in a couple weeks will be flush with thimbleberries.

Great accomplishment, super views. Chicken out ridge is no joke. Plenty of secure holds though. Snow bridge is almost gone, don’t bother with traction devices. Please don’t throw rocks and tell your children the same. Had to tell some kids that they could easily be endangering climbers. Also hitting golf balls off the summit is littering. Started at 6, summit at 10. Enjoy the hike! Respect your fellow hikers, climbers and the environment.
