    Beautiful lake in the heart of the Cabinet Wilderness. Hike starts in the forest then breaks out onto rocky ledges. As the trail approaches a small waterfall just before the lake, the trail splits left or right. The left fork crosses through the creek and is a bit of a muddy climb up to the lake level, but there are some cables to help. If you take the right fork in the trail it is steep up around rocks and fairly slippery. If you have a heavy backpack you might want to go left. I have done it both ways and left seems easier. The lake has limited access because of a rocky steep shoreline around 3/4 of it but the rock strata around the lake is amazing. Seems to get a lot of storms in this lake depression so have rain gear if you go. Mountain goats were grazing around tents one morning.

    One of my favorite camping places. 3 lakes are a long 18 mile drive on a gravel, washboard road, but it's worth it. Upper lake is my favorite. Easy hike about 2.5 miles from trailhead. The upper lake sits at the bottom of a 900' cliff that used to have an old fire lookout tower on top. It blew over about 10 years ago. The peak is Roman Nose. Lots of wildlife around and fairly good fishing. Lake is stocked with Cutthroat trout. Tough climb up the boulder field on the side of the cliff to the top of Roman Nose but the views are awesome. The edge of the cliff from the top is a shear drop off so be careful.

    This is a moderate hike with beautiful views down the Upper Pack river drainage. Lots of loose rocks above the tree line but well worth the hike. My wife and I hiked in for a picnic lunch and out the same day. Caught a few cutthroat trout just for fun. Bear with cubs on other side of lake. Pikas running around in the rocks. (Think big squirrel with rabbit ears)

    Access this trailhead off of Upper Pack River Rd. Initially you will climb fairly steep switchbacks and break out into a rocky area as you approach the lake. Lake is very picturesque with decent camping spots on the near side. Occasional bears so keep your food away from camp and hung high; especially during huckleberry season. Lake is stocked but lack of food keeps trout fairly small. Nice views.

    The loop on the map is the parking lot. This is an easy flat path that winds through an old cedar and pine forest. The trail is an easy mountain bike trail. The trail is straight north up to the southwest corner of Upper Priest Lake and up along the west bank as far as you like. You can actually swing around the east side and come south but unless you want to swim across the passage(That's the creek that connects both lakes) you will have to have another vehicle waiting on that side.

    Better be in shape! Pretty much up, up, up and no real water sources so bring along some heavy H2O too. View at the top is great. 3 states and Canada.
