At mile 1.2, turn left on Trail 68 at the T-intersection and begin a mile-long ridge run to Schafer. Navigate several confusing trail junctions before reaching a talus field that lies just below the summit. On top of Schafer, you’ll find the remnants of an old fire tower along with huge panoramas of Lake Pend Oreille and Sandpoint to the north and Green Monarch Ridge and Clark Fork to the east. Follow the same route back to the trailhead.
