The Tanglefoot Trail system is a series of old loggign skid roads that have been converted into cross-country ski trails in the winter and biking and hiking trails in the summer. Elevation gain and loss is minimal.

    There are not many trails available in this part of the Priest Lake area, so the trails of the Tanglefoot network are welcome. However, they do not provide much distance or challenge for mountain bikers. They are not really trails in the usual sense, either - they consist of old logging skid roads that have been groomed to support cross-country skiing in the winter. During the summer, they are reasonably popular with local walkers and bikers, although it is rare that you will encounter anyone else on them, even on a busy weekend. They are supposed to be closed to motorized use, but with a lack of signage, it is not uncommon to encounter the occasional ATV or side-by-side (or see evidence of their passing).
