2024 Roundtop Mountain

Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Roundtop Mountain

Loading Events

High above Lake Pend Oreille, we’ll be working the short section of trail that goes to the summit of Roundtop Mountain (elevation 6,037). Starting from the top of Wellington Creek Road, the Mt. Eagen Trail makes a few switchbacks up to Roundtop Peak, then continues along the ridge for three more miles to Mt. Eagen and beyond. The top of Roundtop Peak provides great views of northern Idaho, northwest Montana, and even British Columbia.

Although this is a one-day project, there are lots of great car camping options for those who would like to spend the night in this beautiful area.
