Overview:
The Price Lake loop trail is part of the Julian Price memorial park trails. From the Parking lot at the front of the lake at milepost 296.7.We went left around the lake and followed the path through the rhododendrons as we passed many opening with different views of the lake. We saw people fishing, canoeing, and sitting on benches enjoying the sounds and breeze of the lake. The trail winds around sometimes very close to the shore of the lake and you will have to cross many small and large bridges on the trail. We even got to see beavers and the dam they built towards the back of the lake. We even passed the boathouse were you can rent canoes and kayak for an adventure on the lake. The lake is at an elevation of 3410 feet. Continue past the campground entrance and you will end of back at the parking lot where you started. Price Lake is a wonderful hike and is worth a first or second trip during the fall foliage.
