B+A Summer Map

There was lots of puddles and snow.

Would have been nice if this ap told me the road to the trail was closed until end of may.

Not breathtaking, but it's a fun day. My five year old was tired at the end but had so much fun. We will definitely do it again.

Nice trail! Plenty of water, lake, creeks & flowing stream with several waterfalls! The trail could be better marked, but even getting off it was through pleasant surroundings! The app was the only way we knew we were going the right way! Thanks All Trails!,

Great 3 mile loop, well maintained, and beautiful views! the parking lot was packed and overfull and that made me a little nervous the trail would be packed. It was busy, but not so busy the trail was crowded or people were stepping on eachother. Good little afternoon hike!

Had such a nice time. Pretty flat trail. A few spots made me nervous with young kids but we just picked them up. Such a cool place! We’ll definitely be back. Ohh and there’s a playground for after!

It’s a nice walk on a cool day, no shade or cover at all. Really pretty views of Missoula but a pretty boring hike otherwise. You can have dogs off leash and it seems pretty safe. Minimal parking.

World class waterfall! In the middle of NOWHERE! But worth the drive from wherever you’re from.

Beautiful trail, a little muddy but overall great hike.

I went March of 2017 and it was good. I didn’t hike all the way down because I had my dog but I got some amazing pictures.

Great little loop trail! Everyone should visit and see Palouse Falls at least once in their lifetime. I went on Feb 27th 2018 and was able to catch sunset. It was great!

I also filmed the hike and caught some good drone footage of the film. For anyone interested it can be found on Youtube if you search “Sunset over Palouse Falls. Flying to film.”

Great hike and amazing waterfall. I recommend hiking out to the top of the falls as well as down to the bottom. Great views from every part of the trail.

It’s a fairly moderate hike that has a nice view and a few little surprises along the way

Great easy trail to hike with my dog. There were other dogs and bikers on this trail.

Great trail was mixed between ice and hard pack.

One of my favorite trails in the area. Great hike, but saw two cougars this evening. Watch out and keep small children and pets close- especially at dusk.

Lots of folks out, which wasn't surprising considering it was a beautiful sunny day in January. I'd like to go back to explore some more of the smaller inner trails sometime too.

I did this hike today (Jan 29) and did not see anyone else. Description above is wrong. There is no river. RT to road is 6 miles. Big tree is about 1.5 mi from start. First part of trail was bare. Near top I was sinking up to my knees every once in a while. Spikes recommended for icy grades. Very nice views along route of Hayden Lake and mts north of Spokane.

Just did a quick 2 miles around part of the lake, so beautiful!!! So many different trails and routes to take, I can’t wait to go back and explore more. Definitely many people out today, and it was sprinkling so I imagine it would be extremely packed during the warmer months. So pretty though!

Beautiful views, was really icy though and nearly slipped off the trail a couple of times. Going to wear micro spikes the next time!

Love this place.

As of Jan 15th the trail is mildly muddy with only a handful of sections that are very slick and icy. You do not need cleats or YakTrax at this point.

Great day in the woods playing in the snow, deep in parts but doable without snow shoes :)

Trail was snow packed already so we just wore our boots and headed up. Nice little climb and beautiful on a bluebird winter day. Took the switch back up and took an indent back that went straight down along the ridge. I've never been here before so not sure if we were on a designated trail but it all went back to the same place eventually. We saw a lot of deer tracks but didn't see animal or person the whole journey. If you love icy wisps and snowy pines I'd recommend bringing your camera or phone. Great little close-by if you don't want to drive too far.

beautiful waterfall, though there was freezing rain today and it took us a number of attempts to get up the hill! so would recommend 4 wheel drive if weather conditions are calling for snow or freezing rain but a must do if you are in the area!

Super fun, definitely would go again

Not a bad hike for the beginning of the season to get your hiking juices flowing! Pretty steep sections and a nice view from the top!

Beautiful morning on mineral ridge today.. the fog started clearing out and made for some spectacular views. Nice short hike close to home.
