Already mentioned by other reviewers, but the trail isn’t marked very well & yes you must take 3 different trails to complete this loop. No cave obviously, but it was isolated enough if you want some solitude. Not much wildlife around this time of year, but saw a dead bird. :(

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.

Great walk nice views of the lake.

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

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!

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

nice and easy trail for an afternoon hike

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.

Good little trail for walking the dog.

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.

Love this hike especially when you reach the top and have a beautiful view of CDA lake. There is also some history to read and share about the trail. I also liked that the trail markers were clearly visable throughout the hike and the trails .

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.

Super Fun little hike. I live here and hike Mineral a ton! Never get tired of it
Lake views are awesome!

Nice north face trail. Lottsa beautiful folliage, solid incline, and stunning views. Will do it again next year!

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!

Steeper than I expected. One for people who like the stair machines at the gym. But not too long. Beautiful Autumn colors. Beware of the three "ankle turner" rock fields near the top. First about 150 meters in length, the other two shorter. Forget looking at the scenery when traversing these rock fields. You have to watch where you step. Trail easy to follow, even through the rocks. Yesterday was cold and drizzly, so the summit was in the clouds, therefore, no views.

Very beautiful trail which gave me a little of everthing that I want in a hike. First part is moderately upward with a spectacular mountain view. After the descent is thick forest and streams that opened into a wide meadow with also a spectacular view of surrounding mountains. Then I entered into more forest and streams. Definately explore this hike but be sure to wear good shoes and dont go alone. I was leary about bears and cougars being it was such a remote location and was happy to have brought bear spray. Trail paths were in fairly good shape. Will return.

loved this hike! Well maintained and the creativity of using the rocks as seats was amazing to see.

The view wow

Nice spot to stretch your legs after doing the scenic route around the lake.

Ok trail. I thought ATVs were not allowed on this trail. Clearly they have ripped it up. Same issue with others dogs off leashes and poop. Has a couple nice scenic views and is a nice little work out.
