Non-motorized singletrack trail to Lower Palisades Lake and beyond. This trail accesses Upper Palisades Lake and trails deeper in the Snake River Mountain Range when the high country is snow free.

Palisades Creek Trail drys early in the season and stays ridable late in the year too. These shoulder seasons may be the best time to ride to the lakes as this is a very popular hiking trail in the region.
