Beautiful trail! The beginning wanders along the creek and provides shade and cool temps under the forest foliage. Plentiful waterfalls soothe ears and eyes. Later, the hike goes uphill. For those who feel tentative on hills, hiking poles might be helpful. The many interpretative signs tell the story of Ed Pulaski and western wildfires.

A splendid hike with gorgeous views! It starts at the Green Bay Campground and heads northeast for about two hours worth of a hike. Keep in mind it is a climb, however the temperate forest provide a great deal of shade which facilitate a nice light breeze to cool you down.

Great trail!
If we went again (which we will be), I'd definitely bring more water/CamelBaks because it gets steep and HOT! Worth the climb though with the beautiful little waterfalls and wildlife all around. There's plenty of spots to take a rest every quarter mile or so, but PLEASE pick up after yourself!! I can't believe how much trash we picked up along the way.

Really fun family hike! the path can get a bit narrow, so challenging with a jogging stroller. There are two beautiful waterfalls to admire.

Trail steep at first. Nice overnight stay!

I am giving this trail a 5 even though we hiked in April, so we didn't make it to the end due to too much snow for our group. The trail was beautiful along the creek, and I would agree that it is well maintained. We still encountered more people than I was expecting, so I can imagine this trail is fairly busy when the conditions are more favorable. I can't wait to do this trail in full some day.

it was a good hike nice drive spots to put your head inside the water and cool off great day

beautiful pictures the fern Falls is fenced off but was easy to jump over and walk up to take pictures

One of the best trails we've been on in Idaho! Well maintained, scenic and historic. Worth the drive.

Great trail with rich history, very tough people back in those days, I love the hike, and hope to try to do it once every year

Parked at the lower parking lot of the Green Bay camp ground. ~3.7 miles from the lower trail head to the "T" with the Trail #82 sign. Go the extra ~0.25 mile to the mineral point picnic spot.

Great lake views and saw a Bald Eagle.

Superbly well maintained and marked trail. Also contain plethora of information signs

This trail is Trail No. 82. Take Sagle Road to Garfield Bay Cut Off Road, then turn left at the Big Red Barn into Green Bay Road (no sign). You can access the trail at either the Green Bay Campground or to the East. The road is a little rough. Good parking at the East trailhead for 6-7 cars, and pull outs on the road to park as well. Also nearby is the Lost Lake Trail Head #81. Plenty of space to mountain bike, well maintained. Small beach at the West trailhead. Multiple benches to sit and enjoy the view. I would classify this trail as easy, good for kids and dogs. Took 90 minutes to walk the entire trail.

Beautiful hike. Awesome history and cave at the end. Bring some water.

Hiked this today. My GPS had this hike at 4.5 miles with an ascent over 800 feet. Not much elevation but it comes in a short distance making it a challenge at times. There is no snow. The stream that parallels the trail has a lot of water flowing making for a more interesting hike.

Great hike, there was barely any snow left at the top. We loved it!

This is a real scenic hike! There are multiple routes to take as well so you can do a lot of exploring.

Well maintained trail with gorgeous scenery! Well marked and challenging for us since we had a 2 year old in a backpack carrier and a 3 month old in a front carrier! Will definitely come back to camp at the end with friends!

Absolutely breathtaking! Still snow, packed down but icy! Id wait a month or so before visiting!

4-18-18 Hike up to the tunnel today. We took our snowshoes along and needed them about mile and a half up the trail. Probably 65 today so lots of melting going on. Still a couple of feet of snow at the tunnel.

their is still 1-3 feet of snow on the trail most of the way. it was compact enough to stay on top of it (most the time) without falling through. I would wait at least a month if you don't want to deal with the snow.
