Summer Blossom is an excellent trail for viewing the Sawtooth high country. The trail is an old sheep herders route through Summer Blossom basin to a point near the summit of North Navarre Peak (7,963 ft). The peak offers outstanding views from the snowy Cascades to the vast semiarid plains of the Columbia Plateau. You will appreciate the rock cribbing work of the CCC as you hike the ridge down to the junction with the Summit Trail at the East Fork Prince Creek. The trail has a few steep grades and the tread is light in some spots due to low use. Water should be carried. There are possible camping areas within a mile and a half of the trailhead.
Directions: From Mehtow, Travel north on State Highway 153 for approximately 5-6 miles to County Road 1029. Turn west onto 1029 and proceed for about one mile to an intersection. Turn left onto County Road 1034. Continue for about a mile to another intersection. Turn left again onto Forest Service Road 4330 (South Fork Gold Creek Road). Follow 4330 for about 5 miles. Turn right onto Forest Service Road 600. Follow 600 for about 6 miles . Turn right onto Forest Service Road 8200 and follow for about 8 miles to the Summer Blossom Trailhead.
