Bayview-Blacktail "Three Sisters" (Idaho Forest Trail 230)

id

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 1.8 miles


A ridge trail that offers good views of Lake Pend Oreille and the Cocolalla Valley.
  • Lake Pend Oreille
  • Trailhead
  • Parking
  • Trail View
  • View of the Valley

The trail is 1.8 miles one-way and climbs 1,200 feet with the highest point being 3,800 feet.

Conditions:
The trail is in fair to poor condition.  Motorcycles were allowed on this trail until July of 2010.  The motorcycles put deep ruts in the trail that may be difficult to walk around/through.  The forest service classifies this trail as a Moderate Use trail.

Trailhead:
The parking area is only big enough for a single car (maybe two if you don't mind being blocked in).  The trail is not marked and can be easy to miss if you don't know exactly where the trail starts.
Alternate Trailhead:
Up the road a bit is a wide corner that a few cars can park at.  The trail is just off the road at this point and makes another start point.

Considerations:
The trail winds through private property.  Be kind to the property owners and stay on the trail.
Even though there are plenty of people around, remember that this is bear country, so be bear aware!  Both Black Bear and Grizzly inhabit the area.  There are also Moose, Elk, and Deer in the area.
