One of favorite alpine lakes. It made for one epic snowshoe. Be prepared for technical shoeing, cold conditions and predators.

So pretty!

Went on Saturday afternoon and it was a beautiful sunny day. Very peaceful, not many people. Trumpeter swans, ducks and geese were plenty.
Close to the Winslow pond we encountered a very large porcupine lumbering along.
No ticks visible at this time of year.

Fun little walk with great views of the lake! Good for all experience levels and ages. There are many areas to pop off the trail and go for a swim if the weather is nice. Some of the trail is poorly marked as well.

Nice maintained trail. Easy.

One of my favorite hikes. Pretty views of the lake. Tourist season can get a little trashy. We bring bags and pick up trash.

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.

Quick little loop.

Lovely day hiking around here- did this and part of 2 of the other trails (Stubble & the one that goes to the shop) at the start of my day/before doing the auto tour and some of those shorter hikes.

I’m not sure why this only has 2 stars! It’s a great little trail in this state park & as part of a day where you take multiple trails (like I did) it is great! It was beautiful/wonderful views of the natural beauty in the park.

Great walk nice views of the lake.

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.

This is one of my favorite trails! We ride our bikes on this trail all the time and it's wonderful! It's a very smooth ride and people we pass are always super friendly.

nice and easy trail for an afternoon hike

Clean well marked trails along the pathways. It wasn’t clear that half the trails are on the other side of the road. We plan to go back and walk the other one.

An easy going hike for some exercise

Great midday stop for brief walk with dog on a road trip across country. Off leash time for dog was nice. Had lunch on the sandy beach. Very few people in mid week.

One of the most scenic walks you can take. It's an easy trail, but when you are lucky enough to be the only humans out there (before & after the summer tourist season), it is peaceful, and so beautiful! We enjoy watching for eagles.

Nice easy trail thru the woods. It is muddy early spring, but great later in the season. Plenty of wildlife signs. Watch out for bear and moose in this area.

I didn't like it. It is way too rocky and poorly marked. Plus, there was a billion people on the trail. But, Coeurdalene is beautiful and this is very close to the lodge.

Pros: Very accessible, borders the Spokane river, little incline Cons: Can get crowded, potential water danger on parts of trail
I have done this trail a few times through the years I have lived in the region and it is certainly a great spot to take a dog, or kids. You can fish in certain parts of the river, but it is important to recognize the dangers apparent in recreating in river water, especially at high flow in spring time. Also, Cougars have been reportedly spotted in the area, so one is wise to watch for signs that may signify animal activity.
3/5 stars

Loved this hike near the CDA resort and lake. first half of the hike was easy, but second half of hike a lot harder. Main Trail signs hard to see as you can get lost quickly if you're not paying attention.

Did this last Saturday. Could not believe there was snow on the trail. Beautiful hike. Great reflections on the lake

I just bought a recumbent trike and am getting back in shape. This is a great beginner trail and if you combine all parts you can get almost 7 Miles riding. Great view and is very quiet. There is a restroom on the trail in the Medical Lake Park. Awesome to train without having to go to far on the open road.

I love trails that end in water. climb the Rock!

Beautiful Scenic Easy Hike and well worth it! If you're just needing a few miles to be active, get out of the house with the fam, or just get your steps in! Several trails to choose from...there a few challenging ones if you're wanting to be more adventurous!. There are some easy accesses to small beach areas. Can't say enough about Tubbs..Autumn/Fall is a wonderful time to go!
