This trail near Coolin, Idaho that features a great forest setting and is thick with huckleberries during the summer months. Rated as moderate.

Lookout Mountain stands above the north end of Priest Lake, Idaho, directly west of The Lionshead and north of Chimney Rock and Harrison Peak. It sports 2 lookouts on its summit: the original lookout built in 1929, which is on the national historical lookout register, and a newer one built in 1977, which is still used. Although its summit is reached by hiking a trail, this peak, as most of the others in the Selkirks, has an imposing, vertical north face. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from June until October.
A short easy hike for families. The views are some of the best in the area.
