Looking for a great day trip or an interesting place to visit on your customized Self Drive Experience? The Roosevelt Ancient Cedars and Granite Falls are an excellent destination for anyone visiting North Idaho. Located near the Idaho/Washington border, on the west side of Priest Lake, Granite Falls cascades down a narrow, sheer rock gorge and hits the bottom with a thunderous roar. A one mile loop trail from the lower cedar grove will take you to excellent view areas about the lower falls where you are able to view both the upper and lower portions of the falls. If you continue another ½ mile on past the vista points, you will arrive in the upper cedar grove.
The Roosevelt Grove of Ancient Cedars is the home of a virgin forest containing giant cedar trees that are up to 2000 years old. The trees here are up to 12 feet in diameter and reach heights of 150 feet. The area was designated a Scenic Area in 1943. These sentinels are amazing. You’ll find yourself stopping constantly and just looking up at their beauty. Don’t forget your camera! If you want, TMI Tours will also arrange a gourmet picnic lunch prepared in advance by one of the top chefs in our area. Imagine sitting in the picnic area under these giant, ancient trees…what a great experience!
