  • Site Description:The Nun Lake Trail follows a creek through a typical wetland forest, climbs into a sub-alpine area with extensive talus fields and terminates at a lake in a large basin. Suitable tenting areas surround the lake. A short ridge climb provides access to two similar lakes over a pass to the south. The primary activities in the area are hiking, camping, fishing and scenic viewing. No designated tent sites or facilities.

  • Driving Directions:Head west from the junction of highway #3 and highway #3A for 30.0 km to the Maryland Creek Logging Road. Follow this road for 14.2 km (stay right at all junctions, and stay on the most traveled road). At 14.2 km, turn right at the fork (should be labelled for Priest River Falls) and follow this road for 1.9 km. Then turn right and follow the Monk Creek Road for another 4.1 km (keep right at the 2.5 km junction). At this point there is a bridge crossing. Park before the bridge; the trailhead can be found on the left side of the road.
