Pillick Ridge Trail #1036 - Trout Creek

Pillick Ridge Trail (1036) offers a commanding view of the Cabinet Mountains, Bull River valley, and Clark Fork valley. It is accessible to trail bikes the first 6 miles; after that the terrain makes trail bike use unsafe and destructive. It is a long hike up to the ridge with little or no water sources. This trail is best used as a backpacking trail, providing access to the proposed Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area.Length: 10.8 milesTrail Begins: Highway 56Trail Ends: Squaw PeakArea Map: Kootenai National Forest Visitors Map USGS Map1: Smeads BenchTownship 27N; Range 33W; Section 12
