Hiked in on October 23. I would like to do this again in the summer. I guess I'm out of shape because this hike was not easy. It kicked my butt but it was well worth it. It took us three hours to get to the Upper Lake and about the same to get out. I agree with everyone about the horse poop and mud.
Loved this area. Not sure if the site is referencing the same location, but I started at the Clearwater Natl Forest trailhead in Harvard. Thanks Idaho..! All The untouched forest areas remained accessible and beautiful. I could've walked all day...or rode a horse..or ATV...
Bruce B. on Proctor Mountain Trail
Great Hike !! Nice reward of the views once you get to the ridge.
Just long enough to get some exercise in for the afternoon.
We hiked this trail in October and left the only human footprints in the first snow of fall for 2 days. We walked to Toxaway Lake first night, then over the pass the second day. The view over twin lakes was stunning. I would recommend doing the hike this direction as opposed to Alice Lake first.
Janet H. on Proctor Mountain Trail
Nice quick hike with pretty good views and a quick return. I bet in September it is spectacular with more leaves on the aspen!taking lots of photos with several stops only took 2 hours.
Janet H. on Chocolate Gulch Trail
Great almost 360 views at a rocky summit. Take some time there! Good trail. Mid October we had mud and snow. Beautiful all the way!
This was our first time going to a hot spring. The travelers we encountered were friendly and very interesting!
It was lightly raining but sitting in the hot spring and feeling the cold rain on your shoulders left you feeling rejuvenated. Will be traveling here again with my pups!
This is a great trail for running! We would run it all the time for XC practice. there is not very much elevation and high chances of running into wildlife. It over looks deep creek for a portion of the trail. There is not alot of great sights but still worth the time to explore.
This trail used to be my running loop when I lived closer to it. There is a good variety of hills and flat spots. There is also a variety of different trails all having a different difficulty. This part of the trail really appealed to me to help keep me from getting bored.
However, there are a lot of people. I attempted going around 12 and my run was constantly getting interrupted because of the amount of people. Going in the late afternoon so you finish just before dark, I found was the best time to avoid the masses.
This trail IS shared with mountain bikes and motorcycles. But if you want a decent trail near Coeur d'Alene without having to travel out of town, this one has plenty of good views that can make up for the disruption. Overall not a bad rainy day hike.
