Blacktail Mountain is located approximately 5 miles east of Cocallala, Idaho.  The drive is a little longer than Gold Hill, but still short enough reach in the evening.  It took me an hour to reach the summit and about 45 minutes to descend.  The views of Lake Pend Oreille were pretty good.  After cleaning up back in Sandpoint, Idaho, I returned to the new brewery and to try a couple different beers.
