Ascent Trip Report

Public. Long approach but the roads are fine. We drove N from Libby to Yaak then W then N. It's a long way on non-highway roads. See the GPS track because the trail does not match the map. Past that, the trail is good and you just hike the trail to the summit. Lookout still there. Wide views. Easy Peak. Scenic area in a pleasant but not spectacular way.
