HIKING -- A scenic spot in the Selkirks will be hard to reach this summer.
Two Mouth Lakes Trail 268 on the Bonners Ferry Ranger District will be closed starting Monday, June 13, through the end of September, the Idaho Panhandle National Forests said today. Officials cite safety concerns related to roadwork and logging activities that Hancock Forest Management is conducting on its property bordering the national forest.
The trailhead and the first 1.5 miles of road and trail are on Hancock’s property before the trail heads into the Bonners Ferry Ranger District.
The trail (Trip 46 in 100 Hikes in the Inland Northwest) runs through the logging units and log trucks will be hauling on the road making it unsafe for travel, forest officials say.
