A well kept secret in Bonner County, Priest Lake Nordic Trails have something to offer for everyone and have been making some exciting expansions and reopening of formerly loved trails. Groomed trails are located at Indian Creek State Park, the golf course, Hanna Flats, and the newly reopened Chipmunk Rapids.
Hanna Flats, the golf course and Chipmunk Rapids will require an Idaho Park N Ski sticker. At $25 annually this is a great deal. You can a sticker at Hill’s Resort or Tamrak. But since you might want to ski at Chipmunk first, get yours online. Go to: parksandrecreation.idaho.gov. At the top of the page click Registration and Permits, then Park N Ski Annual. Under the “Use Area”, click the drop down menu and select Hanna Flats, area 19. That way some of the money funnels back to Priest Lake Nordic Club for grooming expenses.
