This a a great short trail that you can use for trail running training. Very competitive CRs have been set on Strava.

Easy hike with many switch backs. The distance makes for a constant gradual climb through dense forest with a stellar view at the end. Overall, a great hike that I would recommend.

This was a great hike. 5.7 miles, roughly, with many switchbacks. a lot of mountain bikers so be careful and aware. The top viewpoint provides a great look of the Lake, Sandpoint, and the longbridge and train trestle. It's on the easy to moderate scale, in my opinion.

Great trail for conditioning! A good steady climb with lots of easy level sections to catch your breath and observe the forest.

Great trail! Easy to follow, great mix of views and forest. Not easy to go up (you are climbing up over 1700 feet after all) but the views are so worth it! lots of greenery and when you can get away from the people, the birdsongs are amazing! lots of cool insects, birds and squirrels out to greet you, too.

On this particular hike I'm torn; the hike itself was good, but the trail was not very impressive. Towards the top viewpoint the mountain was covered in dense fog and there was light snow. This made the surrounding forest eerie yet beautiful. Because of the fog I was not able to see the lake or Sandpoint from the lookouts. But aside from the fog towards the top of the mountain, the trail was relatively tame with not much to look at (Granted, this is in part due to the time of year). The trail also has a very unceremonious end off the side of a forest road.
Overall while I very much enjoyed the hike, it would be hard to recommend this one. I will need to try it again at different points in the year.
