Directions to Trailhead or Meeting Location:

Directions to Trailhead: The trailhead is just off of Montana Highway 200 45 miles east of Sandpoint, ID and 45 miles West of Thompson Falls, MT. The trailhead turn-off is near mile marker 6.5 on Forest Road #2292. About 100 yards up the road, there is a switchback and the trail head is in that corner. It’s marked with a brown gilsonite lath with the number 999 on it. There is room for about four or five cars near the trailhead. You can also park at a highway pull-off that directly across highway from Forest Rd #2292. This highway-adjacent parking is a great option for winter hikers.

Hike Description:

We will start out on a logging road for the first mile or so, then follow the trail and eventually the ridgeline to the top of beautiful Star Peak where a historic forest service fire lookout still resides.  If the weather cooperates we will have spectacular views of the Clark Fork valley, Ballard Table Peak & Pillick Ridge.  Bring lunch, hot drinks and extra layers for the top.

This event is from 9am-4pm MST (8-3pm PST)
