Took a quick trip two hours north of Spokane to hike Sherman Peak, between Kettle Falls and Republic. The loop trail began at the pass, 5500 feet elevation. Very pleasant five miles with a mix of thick, dark forest and open vistas. About half of the hike is in an area that burned about 20 years ago, so it is much more open than it otherwise would be.
