Idaho hiking series kicks off Saturday, June 27

In its ninth summer, the Idaho Conservation League Adventure Series in North Idaho features day hikes of varying difficulty, paddle trips on both Lake Pend Oreille and Lake Coeur d’Alene and campsite and trail maintenance volunteer opportunities. Whether you are new or native to the Panhandle, this adventure series is a great way to explore and gain new appreciation for Idaho’s spectacular peaks, lakes, streams and wildlife.

The hiking series kicks off Saturday, June 27, 2015 with a hike up Lookout Mountain in the Selkirks. This scenic, one-way seven-mile hike near the north end of Priest Lake features phenomenal views of Priest Lake, Lions Head and the Selkirk Mountain range.

The other 14 outings offered this summer and fall include easy family hikes to alpine lakes, more strenuous hikes to peaks in the Selkirk Crest, as well as a birding hike to Harrison Lake. ICL is also offering three paddle trips this year – one through the stunning Clark Fork River Delta with Kathy Cousins from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

The outings are free and open to all but space is limited and registration is required. To sign up for a hike, kayak trip or volunteer opportunity, or for more information, visit www.idahoconservation.org or contact the Idaho Conservation League’s Sandpoint office at (208) 265-9565.
