great little walk down to a beautiful waterfall. very kid friendly. worth the trip.

Used for marathon training. I wouldn't consider it a hike, but it's good for running.

Not really a “hike”, but absolutely beautiful!

Nice concrete trail with a beautiful view of the Snake River. I ran this trail several times when I stayed in Twin Falls in late May 2017. There were waterfalls, marmots, ground squirrels, and a variety of riparian birds along the trail as well. There is plenty of parking at the visitor's center. People were parasailing off of Perrine Bridge; it was neat to watch.

Trail is undergoing repairs until mid October 2017

Sharkey Hot Springs is closed every Wednesday morning for its weekly cleaning and maintenance.

This is SO beautiful as you run. My hubby and I ran it this morning! Quite a busy trail too.

great trail along the Greenbelt can get crowded in the summer

This trail is open for the summer. It is a short stroll along the lake.

easy trail for all ages with nice views of the falls

Great in town walk/run.

From Coeur d'Alene you go to Higgins Point, and from there you have to go back again ?? (a very short ride on the bike if you're out for some excercise) The views of the lake are fine, but a lot of traffic/noise on the road. Unfortunately

Beautiful trail around the Snake River and falls.

More like a short walk, but the view is amazing

It was my buddy’s birthday today. He turned 75. He went to the gym in the morning, hiked Mineral Ridge after that, and was getting bored, so he called me to ride bicycles on Rutledge Trailhead, or as the locals refer to it, “Higgen’s Point Trail.” At 10 miles, this is not a really long ride for a bike, but some of the hills will daunt to a degree, the resolve of all but hardcore bike riders. We rode to Higgens Point, and on the way back, my buddy stopped at the pull up bars, to knock out 20 pull ups, just to show off. If I am fortunate enough to live to be 75, I will be grateful if I can even pull up my own pants.

I have ridden this trail multiple times before, but today, I decided to add it to the trail lists on AllTrails. AllTrails has turned into a hobby for me, (maybe a religion, haha!) and I have really started to enjoy exploring the trails on AllTrails, and finding new ones to add to the awesome database. I’ve been like a missionary lately, whenever I meet someone on a trail, I ask if they have heard of AllTrails. It is my goal to find and add ten new awesome trails this summer. But I digress!

Rutledge Trailhead is a really nice spot to go for a walk along the shore of Coeur d’Alene Lake. I saw lots of people walking their dogs today. One of the dogs got so excited when we passed on bicycles, that I stopped to give it a little love. The views of the lake are lovely! There is usually a cool wind blowing off this end of the lake. In the summer, that is a plus, in the winter, not so much!

I have taken a few evening walks along this trail before. The exercise stations along the way, are tempting, almost making it impossible to not try them out a little. Lastly, this is such a nice trail, so smooth and well-maintained, that it would be paradise for a wheelchair rider. There are many assisted living homes in North Idaho. I am planning to see if I can find someplace to volunteer to help with outdoors activities. This would be such a nice place to share with an elderly shut in!

Easy and fun for grandma and kids. Up close and personal with powerful spring falls!

This is the nearest paved bike trail to my house, so I use it quite regularly. This is a quick route to get down to CDA Lake, or connect with the trails running East - West. Somebody dumped some serious money into the development of this trail. The trail is well-paved with smooth asphalt. I would estimate that the trail is about 15 feet wide, so it can accommodate heavy use. On this Memorial Day weekend, there were a lot of people out riding bikes, running, walking their dogs, pushing their baby strollers, etc. There was even a group of people pushing senior citizens along in wheelchairs. They looked like they were having a very nice afternoon.

An urban wide paved path, frequent tourist destination year round, now parallels the farmers market from Spring to Fall. Beautiful scenery year round, in the summer they extend the path under Hwy 20 with a floating bridge so we are able to bike into Freeman Park. If you go the south-west across WBroadway St towards Snake River landing, the gardens are amazing. Sportsman park and the "rock garden" down further alongside the river, those are well worth exploring the places away from the tourist trap but beautiful waterfalls and temple views

I checked this trail out in February, but the gate was locked. I checked it again today, in April, and it is still locked, so I am not entirely sure what is going on here. Perhaps it is closed seasonally. There appears to be a very neat parking and camping area for RVs. The walk along the Spokane River looks lovely from a distance. I will check back again in a couple of months, and see if there is any change in the status of the front gate. One could technically, park down the road, and stroll along the river.

I love this loop,and if you know the area you can double your fun and ride the full 10 miles. from Sunnyside to the end of the bike path behind the park and back.

Amazingly beautiful. Fun easy nature hike with kids and dog to lower falls.

Mesa Falls is a beautiful waterfall. Definitely worth the drive and the $5.00 entrance fee.

Definitely worth the effort to take the scenic byway and stop for a visit. The falls are incredible. I wouldn't call this hike at all. Very easy walk.

Worth the drive out to see it. Hardly a "hike" but an easy walk out to the boardwalk. Lots of mosquitoes, but the view is fantastic! My wife and toddlers and I were all amazed at the size of the falls and how close we could get. $5 entrance fee to park.
