Brulee Trail #130

  

The Brulee trail has views of the Miller and West Fisher drainages with the Cabinet Mountains in the background. The trail begins in a managed landscape, moves up into an open grass/brush slope, and back into forested landscape near the ridge.  A short ¼ mile after connecting with the Divide Trail is Kenelty Mountain Lookout with views into the Fisher River, McGinnis, and Thompson Lakes. 

The trail provides access to Kenelty Mountain and the Divide Trail North #6N, and to the Kenelty Vista Trail #662. Hiking the Brulee Trail to the Divide Trail, then north to the lookout, and down the Kenely Vista Trail makes a nice loop for a day hike. The center third of the trail runs through an open south facing slope.  This portion is narrow with poor tread and is marginal for stock use. The lower and upper portions of the trail are fine for stock.  There is a spring about a mile up and a stagnant pond just below the main ridge. 

The trailhead starts at 3485’, and ends at the junction with the divide trail at 5800’.  Kenelty Mountain lookout is at 5900’ elevation.
