Grizzly Mountain is located north of Kellogg, Idaho. It is the highest summit in the Coeur D’Alene Mountains and it has over 2,000 feet of prominence. Good views and a lot of beargrass, we had some nice fall colors too. Nice hike but it’s a pretty long drive to get to for such a short one.

Access

From county road 1-C take FSR 400 which is paved, zero out odometer here. In a few miles the road turns to gravel, stay right on 400 and turn right on FSR 959 at 6.4 miles. Follow 959 8.5 miles to a T intersection and turn right on FSR 260. In a few tenths of a mile is a split, stay right on 260 which is now a lesser road. It’s rough and bumpy but still fine for a Subaru type vehicle with care to the bermed end of the road,1.8 miles total on 260 to 5250 feet elevation. Note that there is a pretty decent campsite just a few hundred feet before the end of the road.

Northwest Ridge, Class 1+

The hike is simple and short, about 1.7 miles on the old road bed and ATV track to the top and through a bit of burned woods then above tree line in meadow and scree. The old road beyond the berm is closed to motor vehicles but sees regular ATV use.
