Our first ITA “backpacking clinic” will provide a chance for new and experienced backpackers to get together and share ideas on how to better enjoy this sport. ITA will provide pre-trip support for packing and food planning. The project will include an overnight backpack 2.5 miles to Plowboy Campground on the scenic west shore of Upper Priest Lake. Upper Priest Lake can only be accessed by boat or by foot and is surrounded by old growth forest. Several leaders will provide guidance, tips, and tricks on how to have more fun while backpacking in Idaho’s wild areas. We’ll also do trail work on Navigation Trail #291 removing logs and brush and improving the trail tread and drainage.
Difficulty Rating: 2 – Moderate: Minimal elevation gain on hike but we will be carrying our packs and tools.
More Information: All Trails
Estimated Drive Time to Meeting Spot: about 1 hour from the town of Priest River, paved all the way to the trailhead.
