Misha from Island View Resort told us about Schweitzer Mt. that we could ride the gondola up...have lunch at the top & hike down the Mt. So this is what our group did..got a group rate for the gondola ( about $13 ea ) & rode to the top & had lunch at the restaurant. I couldn't resist the Blueberry Cobbler with a scoop & vanilla ice cream as my lunch item...yummy After filling our tummies 3 from the group hiked the 2 1/2 miles down to the bottom. Very steep coming down from the top part at first. Should have brought my hiking stick! We saw the vegetation change from barren to a few bushes to Huckleberry bushes! We picked berries on the way down & snacked on them. The higher up we picked the berries the sweeter they were. Made the hike in about an 1 1/2 hrs, but we didn't get the views from the gondola coming down so we hopped back on the lift & rode it back up & down so we could enjoy the views. ( lift ticket is for all day )
