|SUMMER ON SCHWEITZER MOUNTAIN
Activities abound on Schweitzer Mountain in the
summer: hiking, mountain biking, horseback
riding, and the chairlift ride.
PICKNICKING, HIKING, & WILDFLOWERS
The chairlift takes you from the village high up
on the mountain. Below you the slope drops
away at a steep angle, while you ride along at the
height of the treetops. Fields of glistening white
beargrass flowers cover the mountainside.
Bring a meal and picnic at the top of the world
with a grand view of Lake Pend Oreille and the
surrounding mountains that you will never tire
of. Marmots will pop out of their holes, looking
for a scrap of food (we threw them shrimp
crackers from Seattle's Chinatown). Nearby a
short trail leads along the ridge through a field of
purple, white, and yellow wildflowers.
Schweitzer is covered in mountain biking trails.
The chairlift is equipped to convey bicycles, so
you can start your exploration at the top and

GUIDED HORSE TRAIL RIDE
They say they view is better up on a horse. A
three hour guided horse trail ride leads to Picnic
Point for a marvellous view of the lake. Enjoy the
wildflowers, verdant mountain forest, edible
berries, and frequent wildlife sightings.
