Meet at 6:30AM at the east side parking lot of Walgreens on Appleway in Coeur d’ Alene. We will drive approximately 1 hour 40 minutes to the Big Eddy trailhead on Highway 200 near Heron, Montana. Despite easy access to the trailhead, snowshoeing to the top of Star Peak is a strenuous endeavor. This hike gains elevation quickly, ascending nearly 4200’ in about 5 miles. The journey to the top includes filtered views of the Clark Fork River Valley through the trees. Atop the 6167’ summit is an old fire lookout tower, as well as stunning panoramic views of the Scotchmans, Cabinet Mountains Wilderness and Coeur d’ Alene Mountains. This outing is best suited for physically fit hikers due to steep uphill hiking in potentially deep snow. Please come prepared with your 13 essentials, including insulating clothing layers (no cotton), waterproof insulated boots, high energy snacks and fresh batteries for your headlamp in case we’re out later than planned. A detailed map for this hike is included under “Documents”. Inclement weather may cancel. I will be in touch with all who sign up prior to the outing.
