Take a Hike | Scotchman Peaks

Scotchman Peaks is an iconic trail located just outside of Clark Fork, Idaho. The steep, 4-mile hike up into the Cabinet Mountains is a staple for locals and visitors. This hike has been on my to-do list for several years, and was thrilled at the chance to take in the views. The last weekend in September, we decided to take a spontaneous one-night trip up to Sandpoint with the hopes of summiting Scotchman the following day. We camped at Green…

Backpacking to Fault Lake

July was a crazy month starting out in Greece and then heading straight to the Clearwater for Megan and Dylan's wedding after coming home. Just one week later I rode from Seattle to Portland in one day for the STP with some friends. Then we finished off the month with a slew of BBQs (the way we ought to).

There are several great resources out there to track down local trailheads, including several apps, for those looking for a great day hike. My favorite resources are: (Please note: This post is not sponsored, these are apps and resources I use because they work best for me) The All…

Snowshoe | Fernan Saddle via Stuck in North Idaho

Snowshoeing | Fernan Saddle

Snowshoeing is probably my new favorite winter activity. It’s a great way to get outside in the winter without the risk of torn ligaments and bruises from falling, unless you happen to be extraordinarily klutzy. But for me, one of the best parts of snowshoeing is our proximity to some pretty awesome trails. One of the closest trail networks to us is up at the Fernan Saddle, about a 15-30 (depending on road and weather conditions) minute drive from downtown…
