Description

A trail through gorgeous North Idaho scenery. From the peak you'll descend down Ermine Ridge Trail #413, along a moderately steep slope. The Ermine Ridge trail is a steep descent that is going to keep you on your toes with a couple breaks along the way. Since this is a ridge trail, be aware of some of the steep sidehills on the descent.

This area is heavily wooded, so the views are scarce considering this is a ridge trail.

Enjoy the descent, but remember at the bottom you are a good ways from help.
