Second attempt to get Calispell Peak. The approach and drive up make this a difficult hike to access with most vehicles. Even with a 4WD truck, you can do damage to your vehicle attempting to drive to the top. The smart move is to park on Calispel Peak Rd and hike from the 3.5 mi point to the summit, unless you'd like to do an alignment on your car.

Rocky road walk to the top. Several flowing streams to filter water including a spring immeditely before the final ascent to the summit. Bug spray recommended. Even with three applications, biting flies still managed to find ways to attack, making for difficult CW keying.

Exposed summit with some small trees for a throw line. 360 degree views. A great hike and SOTA but come prepared.
