Leader: Sandy Compton
Directions to Trailhead or Meeting Location:

We will meet at the hike leader's home at 124 MT Highway 200, Heron, MT;  9 miles east of Clark Fork, Idaho, and 11 miles west of the intersection of Montana 56 and Montana 200. Coming from the west, it is the first driveway to the right after Milepost 1. Coming from the east, it's the first drive to the left after Blue Creek Road. Hikers will carpool to the trail head — which could vary depending on the snow coverage.      

Hike Description:

Hike Leader Sandy Compton has lived in the Blue Creek drainage all his life, and he still manages to find new things every time he goes hiking there (Last year, we found some very interesting tracks!). Join him for a snowshoe hike in his “briar patch” and see what interesting sights, sounds and smells might show up.

Bring a good lunch, plenty of fluids, snacks, rain gear (just in case) and other layers, your camera and binocs and senses of humor and adventure.

We will meet at 9 Pacific time, 10 Montana, and return by 4 pm Pacific, 5 pm Montana at the latest.

Carpooling from Sandpoint will likely be available.
