Selkirk Mountains Hikes

We’ve not been able to visit and properly research day hikes in the Selkirk Mountains. However, we’ve identified the ten day hikes mapped below as promising candidates for less-traveled treks. Complete hike descriptions for most of these hikes can be found in Day Hiking Eastern Washington, a guidebook by Rich Landers and Craig Romero that we highly recommend.

NOTE: The Selkirk Mountains are one of the few regions of the Inland Northwest that currently supports grizzly bears. Before visiting, day hikers should inform themselves about grizzly bear behavior, take precautionary measures (such as bear spray canisters), and check with local public land agencies before hiking. The book, Backcountry Bear Basics: The Definitive Guide to Avoiding Unpleasant Encounters, offers a good introduction.
