Description

Closed to all motorized vehicles yearlong.

Newly constructed in 2005, the name Mickinnick is derived from Mick & Nicky and the Kinnickinnick plant that is native and grows along the trail. Mick and Nicky donated 160 acres to the Forest Service for trail construction.

The trail is 3.5 miles long (one-way) and switchbacks around huge rock outcroppings, goes through grassy and mossy meadows and past old growth timber. Spectacular vistas all along the trail include Lake Pend Oreille, Sandpoint, the Cabinet Mountains and the Pend Oreille River.
