Beautiful quick hike through the forest with breath taking views at top.

Fun hike! Great views of the lake. Will definitely be back!!!

Very nice trail not to close to the city. Although I would say it’s more for biking it was still a great trail if you’re looking for something not difficult but a little challenge.

Nice cool trail

Fun family hike. Amazing views. Plenty of spots to rest.

There are additional trails that take you up higher. We had a great time, but felt the burn later. Would hike again.

Pretty trail with a gradual climb. Take your time to notice the birds; western tanagers, buntings, cedar waxwings and nuthatches. The downside is the sound of the highway and the crowds

For being so close to town, it's a fun little hike for families. You can hear the road from the top so this isn't my version of the "best hike ever" and there are always others on the trail because it's so accessible. This is one trail where you can basically hike it all year long which is nice when you want to get outside.

Great trail with well-designed switchbacks to make elevation gain manageable. My 3 yo was able to navigate most of the trail solo, but it was challenging at points. Views of the mountains and CDA are beautiful, although hearing the highway most of the way was a slight drawback. Well worth the drive and a trail we will be doing again for sure.

beautiful views, a lot of switch backs so it's not too tough. a kicker trail up to Wilson trail is quite steep up and back.

This was a rewarding hike! A tad bit steep hill climbs, and some rocky areas to get all the way up to the tower but well worth it! Took trail 1 up to the top from the road & back. Great views!

Been there two times already and loved it each time. The view is amazing and worth the hike up, definitely needed lots of water.

The views at the top made the uphill first half of the hike worth it! There are several benches along the way to allow for a little break before continuing on. At the top there were some offshoot trails you can take - we explored one and made it to another great view point.

Question: is there actually a cave?

views are ok. trail was pretty easy hike.

Great views of Lake Coeur d’Alene!
Beautiful.
Well maintained trail... great for a family hike.

My friend and I wanted to check this out for the first time and the trail up was beautiful, fairly easy and we really enjoyed the views and scenery. We had a couple of four wheelers and bikes pass us, but it was no big deal. We walked quite a ways before realizing that none of the trail numbers on the map we had matched the signs we were seeing and we had no idea how to find our way back down. And then, on the side of the trail we saw a “CAUTION AGGRESSIVE BEAR IN THE AREA” which pretty much set off panic mode. We flagged down some people on four wheelers and they let us know we were going the absolute wrong way- we had missed the trail that would’ve led us back down in a loop- which happened to be where the bear sign was. We were very thankful that these people gave us ride back down- going back the exact same way we came up.

This trail isn’t marked very well at all, but it’s probably an awesome trail if you can figure out the right way to go. I would also caution people to bring bear spray.

This trail on the north side of Canfield Mountain in good condition. I parked at crescent court as there is nothing posted at the entry prohibiting parking. There were four other vehicles. Takes about 90 minutes to get to the top of Canfield mountain. No motorized traffic allowed. Careful not to take any trail spurs.

Nice little loop with some fairly steep switchbacks. We worked up a sweat even though it was only two miles. Despite the slope the trail was nicely maintained and not slippy or too full of roots/rocks. The view at the top was nice but somewhat lessened by the noisy highway running through it. My dogs enjoyed it but it seemed that we were the only ones following the leash rule.

Loved this trail, views at the top are awesome

I loved the views at the top of this short but fun hike! It was a steady uphill climb with switchbacks to the top with expansive views of Lake Coeur d'Alene. The way down was steep with some sliding rocks.

Beautiful path. Extremely well maintained.

Well maintained trail with great views. Moderate uphill. Parking pretty tight

good trail and great scenery, we hike the alternate trail at the top with the steep end to it. 2 for 1 can't complain.

Nice steady climb. Great views!

Good hike, we brought 4 year old not realizing how long it was, but he did great.

East Crestwood Court is a public street off of Packsaddle Drive, which is also public. This parking is about 234 feet higher in elevation than the parking at Nettleton Gulch and it is much closer to the top of Mt Canfield. Take trail 29 from Crestwood to Canfield Loop Rd to the top, This avoids the most of the mountain bikes and motorcycles you may find near Nettleton Gulch.
