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.

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!

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!
