Chilco Mountain Trail

Information on this trail is from SummitPost.org: There is plenty of parking for this trail but no water. The two mile hike to the summit provides views of Purcell Trench, Rathdrum Prairie, Coeur d’Alene, St. Joe, Cabinet, and Selkirk Mountain Ranges, and Lake Pend O’Reille

“From Coeur d’Alene, drive north on US 95 approximately 15 miles to Bunco Road (in front of Silverwood Theme Park), turn right onto Bunco Road. This road turns left (continues straight as Nunn Road, take the left), then curves right. Continue on Forest Road 209 (dirt, good quality but some washboarding) for 6.8 miles. Don’t turn off of this road onto the many dead-end logging roads. The trail begins at the signed junction between FR 209 (Clark Fork River) and NF 385 (Little North Fork Coeur d’Alene/Honeysuckle Campground). Parking is on the left.”
