Kick off the day with a scenic drive north through lush wilderness to pristine Priest Lake—a 19-mile-long lake sitting at the base of the Selkirk Mountains and offering an array of outdoor splendor. Stop at Ardy’s Café in Coolin for a hearty breakfast and then proceed to Priest Lake State Park’s Lionhead Unit trails to explore the area on foot or two wheels. When you’re done with your scenic trek, enjoy a scrumptious lunch at Chimney Rock Cafe in the town of Priest Lake and then slow things down with a leisurely afternoon of paddleboarding, canoeing or kayaking, or rent a pontoon from a variety of local outfitters. After some fun on the water, head back to Coolin to fuel up on smokehouse favorites at Moose Knuckle BBQ, Burgers & Brews, and then cozy up at The Historic Northern Hotel—a perfect space to learn about local history and reflect on the day’s adventures.
