Elk Mountain Trail - Fortine

Elk Mountain Trail (107) provides a hike that takes only a few hours and is fairly easy. The trail is in good condition and leads up to Elk Mountain and the old lookout, winding through dense forests with lupine covered slopes and wide meadows. The last mile of this trail is over rock outcrops and there are few trail markers other than rock cairns. The lookout provides magnificent views of the Cabinet Mountains and the Whitefish and Galton Mountain Ranges.Length: 3.5 milesTrail Begins: Road 3503Trail Ends: Elk Mountain LookoutArea Map: Kootenai National Forest Visitors Map USGS Map1: Bowen LakeTownship 32N; Range 26W; Section 34
