Well maintained trail with great views.
I wish people wouldn’t cut the switchbacks though, sad!

Enjoyed the hike. A bit hazy from the smoke, but still very beautiful. Went off on the Wilson trail for a ways. Nice viewpoints from there.

Great way to take in the lake. Our 3 year old loved it.

This is a technical strenuous moderate mountain bike ride. We started the trail from the Packsaddle area and climbed up to the top then rode down to the parking lot and out. The climb was more than I was used to and there were numerous root and rock steps to navigate. Not heavily trafficked but did run into hikers, trail runners and other mountain bikers on the trail. The trail is quite narrow in places. The trail marking isn’t as clear as I would have liked so bring a map with you. The weather finally cooled down a bit which was nice.

Excellent trail, breathtaking views enjoyed every minute of our time here
Highly recommended

Wasn’t feeling to swell this day, so I did not make it to the top with the rest of my family. Didn’t feel like an “easy” trail either, definitely was a moderate with the huge incline.

Bees only at the beginning of the trail. Lots of good climbs. Not too bad with ruts from bikes. Went early in the morning before the heat and really enjoyed it. No magnificent views. No amazing caves. But nice run through the forest.

Amazing hike to do. The views are amazing and the trail is perfectly shaded for those hot days. You could even enjoy a little picnic if you packed a snack or lunch

Great views!

great hike. lovely views from the top. our 11 year old loved it. plenty of spots to rest if needed.

If you're in the area, this is a nice quick hike. 3 stars b/c it's not as nice as I expected (and not as hard). Easy and not moderate. The Couer d'Alene area is known for its lead poisoning and to my surprise after researching it, is one of the largest superfund sites in the country. Local health / environmental advice says to wash your footwear and clothes separately after being in the area, so just keep this in mind. Sad b/c this is due to 100 years of silver mining contamination in the area.

Beautiful quick hike through the forest with breath taking views at top.

Fun hike! Great views of the lake. Will definitely be back!!!

Very nice trail not to close to the city. Although I would say it’s more for biking it was still a great trail if you’re looking for something not difficult but a little challenge.

Nice cool trail

Fun family hike. Amazing views. Plenty of spots to rest.

There are additional trails that take you up higher. We had a great time, but felt the burn later. Would hike again.

Pretty trail with a gradual climb. Take your time to notice the birds; western tanagers, buntings, cedar waxwings and nuthatches. The downside is the sound of the highway and the crowds

For being so close to town, it's a fun little hike for families. You can hear the road from the top so this isn't my version of the "best hike ever" and there are always others on the trail because it's so accessible. This is one trail where you can basically hike it all year long which is nice when you want to get outside.

This hike ended up being close to 8 miles and is integrated with four other trails: Indian Cliffs, Plummer Creek Fire, Shoeffler Butte and Mullan Road Trail. It's possible to make this as long or as short of an outing as you like. Hiking an Easy incline on the "road" up with well marked trail signs, plenty of shade, and a variety of plants and animals. For more active individuals, this would be a better mountain biking or trail running area. Great place for dogs. Definitely stop at the Visitor Center and get a free map. Also, there are three parking areas to access the trail of the Coeur d Alene's biking trail.

Great trail with well-designed switchbacks to make elevation gain manageable. My 3 yo was able to navigate most of the trail solo, but it was challenging at points. Views of the mountains and CDA are beautiful, although hearing the highway most of the way was a slight drawback. Well worth the drive and a trail we will be doing again for sure.

Great, scenic hike! It is somewhat hard but the climb is gradual with only one steeper part and the trail is very open.

beautiful views, a lot of switch backs so it's not too tough. a kicker trail up to Wilson trail is quite steep up and back.

This was a rewarding hike! A tad bit steep hill climbs, and some rocky areas to get all the way up to the tower but well worth it! Took trail 1 up to the top from the road & back. Great views!
