“A rolling singletrack descent to Upper Priest Lake and back.”— Jeffrey Mergler
The trail is predominantly Douglas fir for the first few miles then drops down into an area of old-growth cedar.
Once you see the lake, bear left and follow the sandy singletrack out onto beach and enjoy the view of Upper Priest Lake. You can continue a little ways down Idaho Department of Lands Trail #58 to reach Trapper Creek and the adjacent campground. Once you're ready, turn around and enjoy the deceptively pleasant climb out back to the car.
