It has everything you want in a hike. Great views, nice trail and a historical vibe. You can grab a guide and learn about the historical significance of the trail while you enjoy the nature. There's even a test. My wife says the forest on this trail feels like it's hugging you.

I'm a huge fan of this loop. If you are looking to get some amazing photos of the Coeur d'Alene area and get in a good 3-4 mile hike. This is "THE" spot. Very well maintained trails. Multiple photo opportunities.

pretty steady incline, would not take young kids as they would probably get tired easily. super fun and super good views while getting some exercise as well.

Well managed, narrow trail. 50% good incline, Pretty steep at times. Loop trail. Mostly shaded. The top is steep and rocky, not family friendly for kids to picnic. Best place to picnic is at trailhead. Overall decent hike, but was disappointed only pretty view was the top looking over the lake.

this trail is mostly a hill. going up and down.. it's not a difficult hill. you could do this trail in sandals if you wanted to. pretty views once you get to the top. there was lots of people and dogs on the trail when I went.

Short hike, mild grade, popular among amateur hikers and people looking for an hour of scenic outdoor exercise.

The trail has one or two good viewpoints and takes about an hour at an average pace. It is well maintained and well marked. It is crowded most of the summer season.
