Steeper than we thought but still easy enough. Really icy in spots could have used some crampons but enough snow to soften all the slips and falls.

Wonderful winter hike! Completed it just wearing hiking boots, but had to do a little sliding. I would suggest ice clips. Saw a couple elk as well.

Our favorite access point to the Canfield Trail System other than the saddles. Regarding the private property, there’s a public access easement over the sliver of private property that you briefly cross that’s allowed entry since Hayden View Estates was platted nearly 40 years ago. The streets are also public since they’re owned and maintained by the city of Coeur d’Alene. Don’t allow anyone to restrict your right to access your public lands. Be respectful of others and neighbors, but your public lands and access to them is one of the most vital liberties we’ve inherited as Americans, and one of the greatest privileges about living in the American West where national forests and parks abound all around us.

Great hike in the beautiful Idaho mountains. The trail was mostly covered in snow with patches of ice in the shaded areas. Very picturesque. Loved listening to the sound of Placer Creek.

12/26/2019 This trail will forever be my favorite! Made it to the first lake with my pup, snowshoes were a must, planning on trecking to the second lake soon!

This was very difficult! We got about 2 hours up and didn’t even make it to the first lake and it just kept going up so we decided to turn around. In all it took 3 hours and 15 minutes. Snowshoes and poles are a must! Also road was snowed out a mile to the trail head so that added and extra 1.5 miles maybe. Definitely was beautiful but hiking straight up for two hours was very hard! We’ll have to try it again in the spring!

We parked our car at the area about .33 miles from the trailhead parking. As previously mentioned the last quarter mile is 4wd higher clearance only. The first part of the trail to the meadow is relatively free of snow and easy to follow. Once past the meadow, the trail quickly becomes snow covered in places and route finding becomes a challenge. We were the first to break the trail since the most recent snow which was fun. All in all the biggest challenges were the occasional treacherous ice patches. For this late in the year I am grateful to be able to slog it out without snowshoes. Get some while it lasts!

Wonderful trail. Have hiked this in the winter on snowshoes and have hiked it in the summer; camping near the lower lake. The hike to the top of the peak is also beautiful.

Great hike. Nice incline so you get a work out but also not hard. The trail is not always well marked but if you keep to the left at most turns you have it right. Some snow and a bit of ice.

A good bun burner.

Always one of my very favorite hikes to do in the area! The road back to the trail head parking lot was snowy and icy so you're definitely going to need a good all wheel drive or 4wd car. The trail it self was snowy/icy in some spots lower before and after the switch backs and the rest was a little on the muddy side. Still great for a beginning of winter hike!

Really wanted to hike this today, got about 15 minutes away from the trail head and the snow was so deep and icy we had to turn the Subaru around. I’d say unless you have great traction, wait to do this unless the snow clears up. *Update: Almost slid off the road and died
