East Ridge Nature Trail
The East Ridge Trail is a 3-mile loop with mile markers along the way. Starting at the trailhead located at the lower end of the Mountain Amphitheater, the East Ridge Trail provides you with an enjoyable walk to a secluded area of Silver Mountain.
The trail is classified as moderate in difficulty with a moderate slope. Fourteen stations have been established along the way highlighting the vegetation encountered along the route.
Initially, the trail winds through the trees to an open vista of the Coeur d'Alene River to the north. Over the past 1.2 billion years, the river has carved through the mountains along the Osburn Fault to form the valley. To the south, the view includes Kellogg Peak, several of the resort's runs, and a view towards the mountain ridges of Central Idaho.
