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.
