HikingGreat!

Gorgeous trail. Lots of switch back. First half was leaves and pine needles and the 2nd half was snow.

Nice solo hike in fresh snow. Saw new tracks but no wildlife. Little slippery coming down but worth it.

Great trail... peaceful. Good workout with the gradual incline if you keep a good pace. Fantastic view of Long Bridge, Lake Pend O'reille, Sandpoint and its surrounding cities.

Amazing loop trail. Started at trailhead and took trail 161 to the top. Beautiful 360 ridge trail views at the top to mount Pend Orielle. Early morning and fall timing was a spectacle with fog rolling through the valleys and making the summit eerily (and peacefully) quiet. 161 is a pretty tight trail for the most part with thick brush on either side, lots of streams and mud, but overall a shortcut to the top. Summit was cold and windy, trees coated with time. Returned on Lake Darling trail 52 which was much easier but still had its share of thick brush and bear marked trees.

Spectacular fall colors framed by granite domes, peaks, and cliffs. Sole representative of the insect kingdom was a lone dragonfly. I cannot recommend this more as a fall hike!

Went backpacking as a group of 4 on September 28-30th. We didn't start until about 1pm the first day, and got to the second lake by 5 or 6. Follow the coordinates provided on all trails through google maps and it will bring you to a loggers road. The road is wide enough here to park on the side and then walk down the loggers road, which goes for I think a bit over 2.5 miles before you enter the forest properly. The trail clearly starts on your left, but the loggers road almost looks like it keeps going on your right. It does not. Follow the trail into the forest. When we went, the wind was blowing what looked like bits of cotton all along the loggers road, making a fey magical sort of feeling. It was so pretty. TEMPS were in the 50's and a bit in the 60's during the day, at night supposedly it got down to 25 at the worst. Maybe it was because we came prepared for cold nights, but it didn't feel that cold. We also had 4 people sleeping shoulder to shoulder in a tent, so that helped. WATER. We used a gravity filter system which filters 4 liters of water in like 10 minutes. On the way to the lakes, you pass probably 3 small streams that you can collect water from (two of them are pretty slight though). On our way up we had brought enough that we didn't need to until we got to the lakes. On our way down we brought a little less water for weight purposes and stopped at one of the streams. Couldn't actually find the trail that goes to the first smaller lake. The trail splits, one going down towards the first smaller lake, but it seemed to peter off and we lost it (though it doesn't seem like other people had problems judging by the reviews). So we followed the other path which brought us to the larger lake. Two from my group followed the stream on our second day from the large lake to the smaller one, and were able to find a trail on the way back that they said was faster than taking the trail that only goes to the larger lake (unfortunately they forgot to mark where it was when they came back to our camp at the larger lake and were not able to find it again). My girlfriend and I, meanwhile, were out trying to forge a path to Harrison peak. I had heard you can make your way there from the two mouth lakes, though there seemed to be no trails. It ended up being farther than it seemed, and we climbed a closer one which we at first thought was Harrison peak. a warning if you attempt this, the brush is tall, ranging from knee to chest height. Coming up the side of the peak, we got to a small unnamed lake (which you can see on google maps) that has another granite peak directly behind it. Beautiful. Ate lunch there and climbed our original goal, the slightly smaller peak to the right, yielding an excellent view of the two mouth lakes and the stream that connects them. I will say it definitely felt more wild somehow, than down by the two mouth lakes. I thought I glimpsed and heard an animal when we first approached the unnamed lake, and when we went out of sight ascending the peak, we both clearly heard something large and probably hooved stomping about in the lake. This is the last forest in the continental US with caribou, I wonder if it was one of those On the third day we climbed back down from the larger of the two mouth lakes and made it down in about 3.5-4 hours.

The hike to the lake is easy and can be done in an hour or two. We finished the loop on 161. 161 is over grown but lots of huckleberries. The last 2 miles you drop 2700 ft.

Great hike when you don’t have all day but still want a good climb with a great view of the lake

I don't primarily hike to find scenic vistas, but this trail does have a lot to appreciate and admire. The viewpoints may not be as bountiful as some trails ... and that meant the trail was not packed with people, the trail was green with vegetation and I found the entire journey peaceful.

Great hike, beautiful views and a September snow storm in the morning. We weren’t alone at the lake but had plenty of spots to spread out. Wind ripped through all night and into the next day. 10/10 would go back

Moderately easy trail, with the steepest climbs at the beginning. The views from the top are stunning. Otherwise the scenery is pleasant and well-shaded. It’s 2.8 miles to a large lookout point. Great place to stop but continue 1/3 mile to the benches. Great views of Sandpoint and the mountains.

I loved this trail. I agree with others when they say it’s on the “easy side of moderate”. The view is well worth the climb. Lots of shade. (I’m a big fan) Fairly well trafficked by other hikers. I believe if you planned to take your time even younger children could do this trail
