Priest Lake


Winter & Summer Paradise

Priest Lake is a great getaway, offering hiking and camping during the summer and nordic skiing in the winter! 

In the winter, there is a groomed track for skate and diagonal skiing appropriate for all levels. When trails are not crowded, dogs are welcome at Priest Lake - only with direct and constant owner supervision and control. On weekends, during special events or any time the trails are obviously busy, the Telluride Nordic Association requests that dog owners use the Trout Lake trails for skiing with their dogs.
