BUSSARD MOUNTAIN 5,968 feet (Class 1)
Bussard is located 1.0 mile north of Queen Mountain.
Map: USGS Eastport
Drive: Access by road to these mountains is good – perhaps too good. Primary approach is from US-2 in the south and US-95 and ID-1 along the range’s western edge. In addition, US-95 cuts across the range’s northwest corner, and the Moyie River Road and the Deer Creek Road (both major secondary roads) cut through central sections of the range from north to south.
US-95 From US-1 to Eastport. US-95 leaves its junction with US-1 14.7 miles north of Bonners Ferry and runs northeast to the Canadian border at Eastport in 16 miles.
Trail/Route: FST-34, Busssard Mountain Trail. Leaves US-95 just west of Robinson Lake and climbs up to the north/south ridge line, which runs to Bussard Mountain in 6.5 miles.
FST-52 leads west from the Moyie River past Bussard Lake to the summit.
On the summit of Bussard, this trail joins FST-152, FST-32 and FST-225.
