From Coeur d'Alene, drive north on US 95 approximately 15 miles to Bunco Road (in front of Silverwood Theme Park), turn right onto Bunco Road. This road turns left (continues straight as Nunn Road, take the left), then curves right. Continue on Forest Road 209 (dirt, good quality but some washboarding) for 6.8 miles. Don't turn off of this road onto the many dead-end logging roads. The trail begins at the signed junction between Forest Road #332 and Forest Road #385. Parking is on the left.
Chilco Trail #14 provides access to two of the highest summits on the Fernan Ranger District. There is no potable water, several good overnight camp sites at the top in the saddle between North and South Chilco Mountains. Great view of the Purcell Trench, Coeur d' Alene, Cabinet and Selkirk Mountain Ranges.
