Take Hwy 56 and watch for the forest service sign for Ross Creek Cedars which is about a half mile South of Bull Lake. After turning off Hwy 56, the Ross Creek Cedars road (National Forest Rd. 398) will be plowed or well traveled for the first few miles. About 1.5 to 2 miles down the road, at the intersection of NF Rd. 398 and West Bull Lake rd. there is a wide spot designated for winter recreation parking. These are the approximate coordinates for winter parking: 48.211126, -115.866427Hike Description:
Join FSPW for our annual snowshoe to the great Ross Creek Cedars for lunch. It is a moderate hike from the parking area to the cedars with about 8 miles roundtrip and slight elevation as we snowshoe up the road. We will stop for views, photos, snacks and to enjoy this beautiful area as we move along. Plan on meeting at the parking lot on time and pack for a full day with snacks, lunch and water. Also something to sit on as we picnic on the snow amongst the cedars.
Will meet at the trailhead at 9:30am PT (10:30am MT). Carpooling will be an option from Sandpoint and Clark Fork.
