THIS TRIP IS FULL. BUT YOU CAN PUT YOUR NAME ON A WAITING LIST. DO NOT USE THIS SITE TO CONTACT ME. I WILL NOT RESPOND--PLEASE CALL ME AT 208.659.8183 IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING THIS HIKE. T.Y. Chic In my opinion, there is not a more spectacular hike/scramble in our region than the Selkirk Crest Loop Hike. Because of the hike start time (7am), we will meet behind the Walgreens and Chiplotas in CDA at 5am. The Walgreens is on the corner of 95 and Appleway. Appleway is one block north of I-90 on 95. We will hike to Harrison Lake and have a snack before heading up to the crest via the west end of the lake. Once on the crest, we will have our first lunch with incredible views all around. Depending on the groups strength, we can summit some of the 7 peaks along the Seven Sisters. Below the crest is a high meadows that we will make our way down to, to get to Little Harrison Lake where we can swim and enjoy L.H.L. From L.H.L. The “trail” heads up and down a steep ridge to Beehive Lake, where we will have our second lunch. The walk out is about 4.5 miles to the trailhead, and another mike to the cars at the Harrison Lake trailhead. All in all the hike is about 10 miles and gains less then 4000 feet. PLEASE EVERYONE, bring your 13 essentials, two lunches, trail snacks, rugged hiking boots, your camera and dress for all weather conditions. Hiking poles help for the hike out. I'll bring my water purifier so we don't have to carry too much water. To get to the trailhead, drive north on 95 past Sandpoint for 10.5 miles to Samuels (there is a gas mart on the left). Turn left (west) up the Pack River road #231 for 20 miles on a often washboard road the the very end. I will provide forest and Topo maps for all hikers. PLEASE CALL ME at 208.659.8183 for more info, and to get approval to go on the hike.
