Ascent Trip Report

The trailhead for the Northwest Peak lookout #169 is approximately twenty miles up the Pete Creek road. Pete Creek road starts just a few miles south of Yaak, Montana, on highway 508 (Yaak River Road).

The trail to the top of Northwest Peak is about 2.5 miles to the top with an elevation gain of 1400 feet. There were huckleberries to pick in multiple places, which made the hike more bearable for my three kiddos.

No large wildlife spotted.
