A really scenic, easy hike along lake Pend Oreille! A pretty brief and relaxing stroll, I’m sure I will walk it again when it warms up.

it was a gorgeous hike and had a great trail, although I was slightly disappointed to realize once you get to the lake, you have to take the same trail back up

Peaceful place for a walk in the fall, winter and spring. Lots of stinky dead salmon washed up in December though! Great for eagle watching!

Great trail with some cool views .Would be a ton of fun to man bike down. Turned around 1 mike from the top cause of how much snow I was in with running shoes.

I enjoyed a very nice hike today, through an autumn wonderland, with a picture-perfect view of the lake as a last reward. Remember, that what does down, must come up again. This hike goes down, down, down to the lake. It's like buying altitude on credit - you have to pay it back at the end.

Good fall hike. Had the place all to myself. Well, except for a fisherman on his boat

Beautiful North Idaho Fall hike, morning hike so we had the trail all to ourselves! Fairly easy hike in with a beautiful beach and nice area for a picnic....hike out was more challenging but enjoyable!

A moderate trail with great views and a nice rock beach at the bottom.

Eh, it was ok. There were picnic tables and fire pits on the landing so any feelings of solitude are replaced by a 'town park' feel. The climb out isn't bad so it might be worth checking out.

The trail is a good workout. I would use a map for this trail if you haven't been on it. The trail has a lot of side trails and not mark very well. Also I would grade this easy to moderate trail.

great day hike to a perfect beach get away. minus the sail boats and full packed beach we encountered. was able to still find a slice of PNW heaven. also path was slightly over grown in some areas. made the whole hike down and up in my running shoes. wasn't able to use this app on the hike due to lack of service and couldn't get it checked off.

Great if looking for a hiking trail where you can swim once reaching the end. Trail path completely surrounded by wild raspberries you can pick and eat during the entire hike.

Trail is very steep and narrow in some parts. The view is beautiful. We did the hike with our three little kids and two dogs. It was a fun family hike, but definitely had its challenges. The beach and camping areas are beautiful! However, black flies were all over so make sure to bug spray!

Great hike, but can be steep at parts. Trail is well marked, narrow, wide enough for one person only for most of the way. Very secluded, we only saw two other people when we were there from 9-11 am! Not sure if this would be totally safe for younger kids or small dogs. Lots of shade, minimal mosquitos. Beautiful views!!! Bring bear spray..and your swim suit! Beautiful!

Although this is not a really long hike, in my opinion, it is one of the most scenic trails in Farragut State Park. If you happen to be in this area of the park, it is worth your time to walk this lovely trail.

Great trail for an easy and fun bike ride.

Great fun! Great dynamic trail! There's scramble spots, lake views, long as hell switch backs, cute squeaky trees (keep a lookout), wildlife, etc. we saw plenty of deer, an adult owl and fledgling, signs of mountain goats and much more! Great for trail running! The peak is rather anti-climactic but there are great camping spots up there, not that we camped... but it's an option for backpacking.

Very runnable trail other than a few steep climbing sections. A couple km in a tree has fallen and completely eliminated the path. Just steer to the left and you'll find the trail after maybe 30 meters.

This loop trail is also known as the "Buggy Trail" on the Farragut trail map, if you stay on the route you shouldn't be getting on different trails and covering more distance. I hike here with my dogs almost daily, the north side is very quite as most of the visitors are at the lake or south side. No matter which side you are headed to, Farragut is definitely worth the visit.

This is a great local spot! Close to Cd'A and Sandpoint with EPIC lake views.

It's an easy 2 downhill miles in and they 2 miles up on the way out.

There are about 3/4 camp spots with 2/3 firepits. Not a lot of wood for burning unless you bring a good axe.

Highly recommend this spot!

It says that the elevation gain was 3421 but my GPS only said 2763:(

Great trail, not a lot of views, but on a hot day this trail has a lot of shade coverage. Beautiful in the trees, trail is well groomed. Hike is long and a steady up hill climb.

This is a long, difficult trail. It took us all day out and back.The view at the top is okay, but it's still pretty neat up there. Would do again!

I went as far as the lake viewpoint before turning around. I want to plan for time and do the full hike soon! Gorgeous trail and views.

Let me start off by saying that if this trail is new to you, expect to do more distance than what others report the trail is unless your following a recording. Multiples of trails and road cross each other in this park and it's very easy to follow another route.

I just finished this trail today, not another soul was to be seen during my 8.3 mile loop. The weather was perfect, nice and cool with thunder in the distance. The trail itself was wet but not muddy or soggy, great for walking on. No snow, puddles or Creeks to cross either. Remember Farragut is a state park so a fee is required if you don't have the pass.

I rode this trail today on a mountain bike. The snow is melted in Farragut State Park, and most of the mud is gone. It was still a little chilly, but a pleasant ride just the same. These trails are ready to hike and bike for the year!

North loop A is around 4 miles and loop B is around 6.5 miles, you can do either or combine. It is groomed in winter for fat bikes, but you can also x/c ski or snowshoe. The north loops allow dogs, which is a great option to share outdoor fun. Leashes are REQUIRED. There can be a fair amount of users so be respectful. There are additional x/c-only groomed trails south of the highway but they do not permit dogs.

I ski'd the B loop with my dog on the day after New Years in 15-degree weather and ran into 2 other skiers and 4 fat-bikers.

Enjoyable rolling terrain with a couple moderate hills to ski down and climb. 90% is winding through timber which is a great atmosphere, especially with a fresh snow load on the tree branches.

Farragut is a state park, so daily use fee or annual vehicle sticker is required.

Today, I managed about half of this trail on snowshoes. The snow was several feet deep, and the trail hard to find. This would be a fierce hike, even in fair weather. I will be back to conquer this, come spring!

The north side may not have the lake, but it has its own beauty. A little more secluded than the south side, you are less likely to run into people, but you have the possibility of running into horse back riders. A nice easy hike!

This is a nice and easy, peaceful hike. Farragut State Park has so much to offer in its beauty and trails. Northside Loop does have more people on it than the south side however.
