North of Spokane and Colville, the Frater Lake is part of the Little Pend Oreille chain of glacial lakes. The FLT (#150/4.3 mi.) is part of a 15 mile network of cross-country ski trails.
To reach the trailhead, from Colville head east on SR20 for 39 miles and park at Frater Lake.
The Frater Lake Trail system includes a series of loop trails. The 1.8 Tiger Loop follows the southern and eastern shores of Frater Lake. A clockwise travel direction is suggested for the steeper 4.8 mile Coyote Loop. The 2.8 Lake Leo Trail and the 1.7 Lions Tail Trail are shorter loops. A picnic area and warming cabin are located near Frater Lake. The cabin is open all year and is available for overnight stays limited to two nights.
Overall, Frater Lake Trail is the 13th most popular cross country ski area of all 16 Nordic ski destinations in Washington.
