Summit 7112 is at the head of Ninemile Creek and overlooks the Clark Fork valley to the north. It is a pleasant hike on cooler summer days.  The on-trail and off-trail are currently exposed with very little tree cover. It will remain open until lodgepole pine regeneration grows for another decade or two.  The summit offers good views of the Mission Mountains and summits of the Reservation Divide.  Snags are abundant so exercise caution especially on windy days. 

Hike miles roundtrip:  1 on-trail #98 and 1 mile off-trail

Elevation gain: 350’ on-trail, 750’ off-trail

Water: none along the trail

Bear Spray: Recommended for all Montana hikes
