I love this trail during all seasons. You can lengthen the trail by taking some of the out and back trails along the main trail line. first one is a cave and a few other lookout ones like lost man trail. great views and a little covered picnic area at top with a water fountain that works during the summer. lots of benches along the way if not a typical hiker or just want to take in the scenery. the trail does have a designation direction once you get a little way into it. My husband and I use this trail for getting in shape for backpacking and testing out new gear. dog friendly

Awesome little hike, and even better views at the top. I took my camera and drone along and filmed the whole thing and the video came out great!

To get a feel for the hike on an October afternoon, check it out at https://youtu.be/WRBp3njBs6E.

Or search on YouTube 'Mineral Ridge Idaho' and it'll be the fourth one down. Thanks for checking it out. Hit that subscribe button!

well maintained trail. Ample switchbacks. Great views of the lake. On a weekday afternoon, only saw 10 or so other hikers.

My 3 year old only made it half way but my 6 year old ran to the top. He fell a sleep as soon as we got back to the car. Beautiful views and a nice little work out. Love the trees and fresh air.
