Ascent Trip Report

We drove from Spokane Mountain Lookout to Wellpinit Mountain Lookout. We made one big mistake: We tried taking a somewhat direct route that included part of BIA-41 (Wellpinit Mountain Road), heading southward until near the summit hill. That road, north of the peak, is in horrible condition in multiple sections, and we were almost not able to get up some steep, rutted sections... despite having high-clearance and 4WD. DO NOT take this approach.

Only take the approach from the south, as described by Eric Noel. This is the way our vehicle descended the mountain, and cars can do it without too much difficulty. The road has been re-graveled near the upper slopes, and the rest of the road is OK.
