“A remote stretch of trail to the Canadian border through trees that's remarkably well-maintained.”

Bring bear spray. Remember that border is closed to international travel without prior permission.
Great trail run.
From the Kishenehn Patrol Cabin, this trail works its way northeast along Kishenehn Creek. This mostly level trail is very well-maintained most likely due to its interest by the park service and border patrol to unauthorized travel.
The trail spends most of its time in a pleasant forest with stretches through old stands of wonderful trees. Many sections are open and airy as you get closer to the border with some beautiful meadows opening up.
After a little over four miles, you come to the large swath cut through the trees at the Canada/US Border.

Flora & Fauna
Mix of burned and unburned forest gives a variety of plants from fireweed and geraniums to arnica and dogwood. Small birds and mammals are common as well as the occasional bear, elk, and very rarely, wolf.
