Myrtle Peak

Elevation: 7,122 ft

This peak is found on page 38.


Myrtle Peak is one of the easier Selkirk Peaks to climb as a trail leads to its summit and the road to the trailhead is better than many Selkirk roads.

To reach the trailhead from Bonners Ferry, drive east to the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge. From this point, take then the Westside Road 1.3 miles to Myrtle Creek Road FS-633 and continue for 10.0 miles. Turn right on FS-2406. It is 3.0 miles to the trailhead. A 4WD is required. Follow the trail for 3.0 miles and just before the summit you will find a side trail that leads the last few feet to the summit. The trail continues on past the peak to Myrtle Peak. The summit offers great views and, perhaps, the best view of The Lions Head.
