It's a little ways out of town but this looks like a fun hike to an amazing area that is not often visited. Good things are often hard to obtain!
Plan is to carpool to Hope, up Palmer Creek Rd to Coeur DeAlene campground where we'll then get on our bikes for a 5 mile easy ride on a dirt road. At the end we hike up to a mine, waterfalls and a gorgeous hanging valley complete with tarns and lots of ridgeline to explore.
This hike will be exploratory for me-I haven't been past the campground. We'll hike till we get tired, bike back down the road and head home. If weather is stellar I may camp and come home Sat.
Bring the usual, mountain bike or good hybrid will be OK, helmet mandatory. Bring lots of food as we'll be out all day. State in your RSVP if you'd be interested in car camping. (good weather only)
Advice from those familiar with this area is welcome!
