This trail took a major wind fall beating. Is is closed at this time. Was the most difficult hike on this district, and was well worth the effort before the storm. Many have tried hiking regardless of the conditions. It begins at the junction of Trail #308, Upper Priest River Trail and almost immediately the Upper Priest River has to be forded. Once across, the trail starts to gradually climb through an old growth stand until you reach the switchbacks. A sign on a tree states there are 72 switchbacks to the Shedroof Divide Trail #512. Sections of the trail are sloughing off due to steep hillsides.

This trail is recommend for only those who want to hike an arduous trail and are in good physical shape. But closed at this time.
