This loop exposes the Salmo-Priest for what it is: a lush nugget of wilderness that narrowly escaped development encroaching from every direction. The trail plunges down to the Salmo River and leads back up to airy peaks and ridges on the Washington-Idaho border. This is some of the wildest country left in Eastern Washington, among the state’s last sanctuaries for grizzly bears, mountain caribou, wolves, and lynx.
