- Selkirk Mountains
The first couple hundred yards of the trail, leading through a cedar grove to Myrtle Creek, are asphalt and handicapped-accessible. A new bridge spans the creek and then the packed-dirt single-track switchbacks gently uphill to a viewpoint with excellent views of the gorge and the plunging waters.
A web of trails leads further uphill, above the falls, but the views really don’t get better up there. The drop-offs are extremely steep and the creek is hidded behind a curtain of shrubs. The view of the Kootenai River valley, however, is nice.
Things to Consider
- Spend some time at the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, home of 45 species of mammals and more than 230 birds.
