About Big Eddy Trail (998) climbs steeply and switchbacks sharply for the first 2.2 miles. From Squaw Peak Lookout there is an excellent view of the valley from Lake Pend Oreille to Noxon Reservoir, and the high peaks of the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness and Scotchman Peaks area. Backpackers prefer camps at Squaw Peak, with day hikes across the ridge to Billiard Table Peak or along Pillick ridge. Horse users should pack in their feed and watch the narrow tread of the upper part of the trail. Length: 4.8 miles Trail Begins: Big Eddy Road; Elevation 2251 feet. Trail Ends: Squaw Peak; Elevation 6167 feet. Area Map: Kootenai National Forest Visitors Map USGS Map1: Heron Township 27N; Range 34W; Section 25
