Hunt Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Don’t be misled by the short mileage on this hike. The effort involves more hopping than walking, since the route from the trailhead to the lake weaves up a talus slope, marked by painted arrows and cairns. Many hikers will love this hike, but not if they have weak ankles. Some might prefer to tent camp at the full-service campgrounds along the east shore of Priest Lake at Indian Creek or Lionhead State Park and make Hunt Lake a day trip without the weight of a pack. There’s an advantage to a trail through huge granite boulders. The Idaho Department of Lands is a timber agency, not a recreation agency. Thus, trails on state land between Priest Lake and the Selkirk Crest are rarely maintained. But while other state land trails are often covered with brush and blowdowns (unless volunteers are active), this trail needs no maintenance."
