This steep hike near Sandpoint has exceptional views and native plant life. The trail gets its unique name from Mick and Nicky Pleass and the native Kinnickinnick plant that grows along the trail. Nicky Pleass donated 160 acres of land to the U.S. Forest Service in memory of her late husband, Nicky, in 1997.

Make your way past meadows, around massive rocky outcroppings and beneath towering old growth timber to marvelous views. See Lake Pend Oreille and the Pend Oreille River, the city of Sandpoint and even the Cabinet Mountains from the Mickinnick Trail.
