Description

This is a great doubletrack that offers an alternative route to the top of Bernard Peak. It also provides an alternative route for ORV's to the top of the Bunco instead of using the Forest Road (332). This is a safer route as logging trucks frequent Forest Road 332.

The Lower Trailhead of Forest Trail 6 is accessed off of FR 332, about 300 yards up from the Bunco Recreational Parking Lot. You'll take a Left onto the trail from FR 332.
From here you'll quickly find yourself plunging into a deep, thick forest. The Trail itself is a solid trail, predominately made up of hard packed dirt & sand mixture. You'll start climbing after about a 1/4 of a mile. The climb is continuous other than a few, short flat sections. Halfway up, the trail starts intermixing with gravel and some loose rock.

There are a few old logging roads and power-line maintenance roads that lead off of this trail. Have some fun and explore a little to take in the area. The Trail will pass under the power-lines a couple of times offering really nice views of the valley floor and the Lower Selkirk Range looking westward. Mt. Spokane can be viewed in the distance as well.

Once on top, the trail will dead end into Forest Road 2707. You can take a Left and head up to Bernard Peak or you can take a Right and head over to Forest Road 332.
This is a popular area for huckleberry picking during the months of July and August.
All in all, this is a great trail to quickly get you into the beginning back-country of the Coeur d' Alene National Forest.
