Start from Noisy Creek Campground on Sullivan Lake as you make your way through the Colville National Forest and the Salmo-Priest Wilderness. This trail is difficult, with moderate to steep grades the whole way. It's worth the work though - the top of the trail offers stunning views of the surrounding peaks. The conifer forests are dense and Noisy Creek is refreshing and calming. There is even an old cabin on the trail just past the creek crossing. Connect to Grassy Top or Hall Mountain trails to make the trip an overnight.
