No. of Reviews: 2

Anexcellent trail. A few dispersed campsites exist along the trail with campgrouns at the northern end of Upper Priest Lake and the south end of the lake. Trail psses through valley and sidehill terrain. Along the trial, beaver ponds can be seen, an old trapper's cabin, abundant wildlife and many scenic views of upper Priest Lake.

I agree with the first reviewer its a great ride... nice rolling trail covering a variety of forest and meadow land. One thing I'd recommend though is to look out for moose and grizzley bear. I've seen both in the area. I almost rode into a moose a few years ago.

Recommended Route:
I'd start from Granite Creek and ride the lake shore trail all the way up to Navigation.

Trail starts at Beaver Creek campground on the north west corner of Priest Lake. It is a rolling trail for the first five miles passing through old growth forest. When you reach the Plowboy campground at that point the trail becomes a little steeper with some technical downhills/uphills, some tricky stream crossings, and the occaional log across the trail. Views of the lake are spectacular and this is a great all around ride.
