Great, easy hike that leads you to camping on the sandy beaches.

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.
