Great hike. moderate is a fair rating based on a regular hiker. Good elevation gain but short distance. Good payoff for moderate effort. Both lower and and upper seemed to have nice campsites. No snow as of 10/24. Noticed the time changed to Mountain on our phones between lower and upper. Bringing the fishing pole next year.

Moderate wouldn't be the best way to describe this hike. There is a lot of different terrain which keeps it fun but theres a large area of rocky terrain that can be challenging to walk up (even though there is a slight path created) especially after fast incline with shakey legs! it is beautiful but bring spikes just in case anytime after October as it can get icy on a very narrow trail just at the top. One of the most beautiful and serene hikes I've done. Dogs should be leashed ALWAYS but on this trail we saw some un leashed dogs and it could be very dangerous for even well behaved pups.

10/27 - no snow on the trail or surrounding peaks. Well maintained and no obstructions on main route. Circumnavigation of the lake is possible but not well marked; steep, muddy and poor footing in places. The drive out through Murray and along the river was beautiful. Plan enough time for breakfast at Snake Pit or lunch and beers in Wallace.

This isn’t really a hike. Yes there’s a trail but all the ones people are talking about aren’t official trails and have resulted in multiple deaths over the years as they aren’t maintained/are very worn away. The falls are beautiful and worth driving to/checking out...but don’t expect a hike and realize if you hike down to the water or behind the falls that you are off trail. This area really needs more rangers/officials to stop all the illegal activity.

Nice little walk, breaks up a drive nicely.

Short. It’s a pretty trail, but I wish we had more close to Pullman. If you go, go in spring- the wildflowers are incredible!

Very steep hike and the trail is well maintained. The top section thru the shale rock is challenging but rewarded with an unobstructed 360 view at the top.

Great views up top and trail was well maintained.

My family and I have been to The Roman Lakes many times. The trails to the lakes are easy to hike to. The Upper Lake is definitely worth the hike, even to the far end and further up the mountain for a higher view. We have camped at the camp sites (3 sites + group site) no camp trailers allowed. Forestry rules state that you can pitch your tent 14 days at a time., even if it’s to hold your spot for a weekend. Fishing is not the best, but there’s easy access to the main lake for Kayaking. It’s a phenomenal place to watch meteor showers!

Great for training with a weighted pack. Not to far, great elevation gain and well maintained trail!!!

Beautiful hike early in the morning.
The cool air smelled so fresh like the smell of pine from all the tall pine trees.
Colors were amazing and sitting on the rocks near the river and listening to the sound of the small waves and swirls was very relaxing.
Will go again in spring!

Awesome!! Cold but was amazing.

We backpacked in and camped at Upper Stevens Lake. Their were a couple very nice camping sites at both lakes. I would not consider myself an avid hiker and it was challenging but the moderate was accurate due to the short distance. I would highly recommend and on my top five places I've hiked.

The trail was nice and the scenery beautiful. It was more difficult out than in. We did not like the trail ended in the forest canyon with no destination. The sign said dead end and they are not kidding!

Other than dodging the horse droppings it was a good 1 hour hike

This is a great trail. Easy directions to drive to the trailhead. Bathroom there. Plenty of parking. However...I would not consider it MODERATE. Any trail that you traverse a large rock shale slide should be hard. And should be mentioned. People hiking with dogs need to know this as well. There are also a lot of large root steps. I found this hike challenging and would definitely do it again but for my companion who does not hike a lot, it was not enjoyable. Beautiful lake at the top and gorgeous tamaracks in yellow right now.

Beautiful hike, the Tamaracks are splendidly golden this time of year and the view of lake Pend Orielle from the summit is spectacular. That being said, I cannot overstate the fact that this hike is RELENTLESSLY UPHILL. There are very few spots where the path levels out and those moments are few and far between, so for that reason alone I would bump this up from moderate to hard. I’m in pretty decent shape and it was a struggle, definitely a thigh-burner!

Amazing views along most of the trail. The 360 degree view at the top is stunning and well worth the trip.

October - Mid Fall

Roman Nose Lakes showcases what the Selkirk mountains have to offer but with easy access for those that aren’t prepared for more adventurous back country exploring.

Being able to drive directly to the lowest of lakes without any hiking is what makes this location popular. The first lake is also arguably the more beautiful (although I did not visit the middle lake). The other lakes are also within a few miles hiking distance, and it is fairly easy hiking to get to them.

If you’ve been to any other lakes in the Selkirks, you’ll know what to expect. Green and emerald lakes, with granite mountain backdrops.

I would advise caution if following the GPS coordinates provided by AllTrails. While they do lead directly to the trailhead, When coming from the south, mapping software might route you on heavily unmaintained roads. The main entrance to the lake seems to be Snow Creek Road.

Parking is large enough to fit several cars, and there is also a campground for those that want to spend the weekend there.

Nice area with plenty of parking. The start of the trailhead was well marked but about a half mile into the hike we came to a clear landing. There was a logging road on our right side and a poorly marked path straight ahead. The actual trail is straight ahead (not on the right side where the logging road is). We ended up turning around because the trail was overgrown and hard to follow. If you do go on this trail, just make sure to follow the map AllTrails provides and not go on the logging road like we accidentally did.
Still made for a beautiful fall day and still worth while.

A bit uphill but definitely worth it when you get to the top.

Steady increase in elevation, lots of switchbacks. Well worth the climb. the views the last 1/2 mile and lake is great. Did this hike with my 59 year old sister and Brother in law from Ohio n they crushed it.

Beautiful in Fall

Fun easy trail.

One of my favorites. It’s 8.8 miles round trip.

Loved this hike. Very beautiful. You start off with a slight incline switchback, not to far to climb. It all pays off once you come down to the most beautiful green forest. Lovely fall colors, lots of moss on the rocks and trees. From this point you have the stream along the path for dogs to cool down. This is a must do hike. Now I know why its rated 5star.

The trail is very well maintained. I don’t know that I would classify it as moderate, as most of the Trail is pretty flat. There is a very short portion where you’re walking up a decent grade, but it’s short. I went yesterday and the fall colors are stunning. The creek can be heard running throughout the whole hike.

Stunning hike!! Maps took us a little off course. When you get into Clark-Fork, take Main road and just follow it all the way up. It’s mostly unmarked but at one point it looked like Mosquito creek road/university road. Follow it all the way up and there’s a tiny sign on the left side of the road that said Trail 65 with an arrow pointing right. Take that right turn and follow that road. You’ll see two more very subtle signs that look like ‘65’ mile markers. Follow those and you’ll be at the trail! Round trip was a little over 8 Miles. We only saw one goat and there was no snow yet. It was beautiful! We were told to come back in August when the goats are everywhere. Definitely a perfect fall hike!

Good little trail for walking the dog.
