 Despite reading the access info for all trails and access roads I am at a loss as to the best route up mt ida. Any suggestions. I am coming from vernon but thats not that relevant.

 there is not a best access. hike a bike mandatory. lots of moto traffic around this area. this is a wilderness route. it’s worth while if you are into what it has to offer.

 the out and back up the north side to the repeater tower is the fastest route I would guess. there are a pile of old roads and moto trails out there is you want to try and link up a circular route. the trail up the SW side is very steep. enjoy.
