Meet at 8 AM at the Fernan Ranger Station in Coeur d’ Alene. We’ll drive approximately 45 minutes to the Coal Creek trailhead on the Coeur d’ Alene River Road north of Kellogg. The hike begins with steady and often steep uphill travel through the Coal Creek drainage. Once we gain the ridgeline, we’ll follow it west to the 5727’ summit of Graham Mountain. If the sky is clear, we will be able to look north across the Coeur d’ Alene Mountains, as far as the Cabinets in northwest Montana. The view south includes Silver Mountain and the many peaks in the Saint Joe River country. We will retrace our route on the way back. Round trip distance is approximately 10 miles with 3,900’ elevation gain. This outing is best suited for physically fit hikers due to steep uphill travel in potentially deep snow. Inclement weather may cancel. Contact Tyler Nyman for more information. Please note: the Spokane Mountaineers are following current COVID 19 guidelines. At the time of posting, the plan will be to drive separate vehicles and practice social distancing during the hike. The group size will be limited to 5 participants plus the activity leader. These parameters are subject to change in the future.
