Hiking Sherlock Peak

Sherlock Peak is tucked away in the Colville National Forest, where you can see the Columbia River and the Pend Oreille Valley from the open summit. The wooded trail to the summit can be steep, and it is quite rugged.

Huckleberries line the trail, and their vibrant red begin to show when temperatures dip in the fall.

This is a wild, quiet, woodsy ramble, with options to connect to the Silver Creek Trail as well as Gunsight Pass.
