Green Monarch Ridge Spring-Summer-Fall Moderately Easy


This very scenic ridge hike, follows the ridge top along the northeast end of Pend Oreille Lake, high off the lake itself. The views of the Scotchman's Peak, Lake Pend Oreille, the Selkirks and Sandpoint make this hike well worth the effort. The hike heads mostly west along the ridge. To get to the trailhead, drive to Clark Fork, Idaho. In the middle of town, you will see a FS sign to the right (southeast) towards Johnson Creek. Once across the bridge turn right immediately and follow this road past the Johnson Creek boat launch toward Lakeview. After 2.6 miles bear left onto Lakeview Road #278. 7.1 miles later bear right at the Y to the parking area.

Cool things to see: incredible views of Pend Oreille Lake, Scotchman's Peak on a nice ridge hike.
