Priest Lake, Idaho Mountain Biking

Come enjoy Idaho mountain biking on the miles of trails along Priest Lake that surround Elkins Resort. We have a variety of routes available to accommodate all distance and difficulty levels. Easily accessible from the Resort, our mountain biking tracks are the perfect blend of good fun and exercise. Get out of the heat by spending an afternoon in the trees, riding through the beautiful, luscious forest greens growing around the Lake.

Our mountain trails reveal a lovely view of the neighboring territory. Bring the whole family out for a light, breezy, casual ride along Reeder Bay. There are plenty of beautiful stopping points to stretch, take pictures, and play in the water.

For our adventure-hungry guests, spend the afternoon riding along the Upper Priest Lake Navigation Trail. Ride the 16-mile round trip route and gaze at the old forest growth along the water. This selection includes a weave of both inclines and declines, perfect for those looking for a little adrenaline.

Other trails include Chipmunk Rapids, Granite Pass, and of course the Lakeshore Trail. This selection includes a weave of both inclines and descents, perfect for those looking for a little adrenaline, and, don’t forget the camera!
