Fun stream crossings, tons of beautiful wildflowers and easy up and down elevation changes. This hike follows the creek for most of the time. Distance is not true. It was about 4.7 m to the lake and 4.7 m back to trailhead.

best hike in all of Spokane area, you can see everything from airway heights to cda once you're at the top. absolutely gorgeous at sunset. do not be afraid of the no parking and no trespassing signs the people beyond the gate are actually quite friendly. there is only 2 houses you pass on the log road going up they dont mind you as long as you are respectful. I've been on this hike 15+ times and reccomend it to everyone who enjoys hiking.

Hiking

Good trail. Mildly busy about the first mile of the trail, but not many people after that. Pretty wildflowers, pretty creek, and huckleberry bushes right next to trail. Hike as far out or as little as you want before turning around. Not the best views of the mountains and a little buggy.

Beautiful trail along lake. Rocky and roots in trail. Challenging for mountain biking in areas along lake. Only went for a few miles along edge.

RockyScramble

We backpacked this for a Saturday night stay last weekend with 4 adults, 6 girls ages 7-14, a medium sized dog and small dog. The long stretch along Redfish Lake was a bit monotonous, but the views of the lake were nice. I'm not sure how to number the lakes as one of them was quite small - it would be the third one if it counts - but these first 3 all looked soft around the edges and silty on their bottoms, though the tree cover surrounding was nice and there's lots of room to set up camp near the first 2 lakes. We opted to scramble up to the next one and it was so worth the effort. The fourth (third?) lake was gorgeous and we hung out there with Mt. Heyburn looking down on us. The trail was questionable for this part - the way we went up and the way we came down were different. We were able to find a good spot to set up 2 4-mans and a 2-man all close to each other. Flat spots weren't as abundant as the lower lakes, but they're around. The husbands and kids fly-fished for a bit and caught a handful of little guys. Mosquitos could have been worse but there were plenty. We swam for a bit, too. Wasn't as cold as I expected with some big patches of snow across the lake still, but still chilly. Very fun and refreshing.

This was the most amazing trail. Very well maintained with bathrooms at @4 and 8 miles in from Moscow. Pump and tool station at 4 miles and then in Troy. The scenery was amazing the entire trail!! Would heartedly recommend this for a ride or walk.

HikingBugsGreat!

Girlfriend's first backpacking trip and it was great way to break the ice into the activity. Only thing better than the peacefulness of the lakes were the friendly people and dogs along the way. Very much appreciate the reviews of others who said to bring bug spray and wanted to leave a reminder that dogs can get eaten up too. The bugs there are no joke. Lots of hikers along the path, but we were the only ones camping on the lake besides a group of very respectful fishermen stoners.

Nice trail but the horseflies ate my daughter alive. Be sure to bring bug spray at this time of year (July).

HikingGreat!

The trail is in immaculate condition which really is normal...it is loved and well cared for by a community of volunteers. There are a couple of very minor washouts, but nothing at all to worry about. Just be aware that it climbs nearly 1000 feet over 2 miles and there are places it is quite steep. Leave yourself time. The forest is currently lush and very green. Placer Creek has great flows of very clear water and plenty of places to stop and dip your toes or more to cool off. Huckleberries surprisingly were not picked over and plenty to be found especially if you wander a few feet off the trail. They ranged from slightly overripe at the bottom to still green at the top, so there will be good pickings for a couple of weeks yet. Most of the trail is well shaded which is great on the hotter days. It's really a very nice hike...just be prepared for the grade and leave some extra time.

Hiking

One of the most scenic hikes to be found in the Pacific NW. I headed out from the visitors center to Button Hook Bay 1.6 miles of shady easy sloping trail to the waters edge. Followed the shoreline for another 4.5 miles to the overview of Scenic Bay/Bayview. I hiked on 7/21 and because of the heat we chose to stick with the trail along the waters edge, lots of small beaches and swimming opportunities, magnificent views. Rather than continue along the trail away from the water we chose to return the way we came along the shoreline for a total of just over 12 miles of easy mostly level trail. Excellent hike with water views, swimming, wildlife and greenery. Highly recommended.

Hiking

Loved this trail - shaded most of the way. Followed Placer creek all the way up which provided fantastic cool breezes the higher you climbed. Many opportunities to dip into the crystal clear waters of the creek to cool your face on a hot day. Interpretive signs and distance markers guide your way. We walked to trailhead from town, but limited parking is available onsite. Nice tribute to firefighter and hero Mr. Pulaski.

HikingGreat!

Hiked this trail in a little over two hours hitting the trail at 4 p.m. Even though this was one of the hottest days this summer, the trail was shaded almost the whole way and thus made the outing very enjoyable. The sound of Placer Creek was heard throughout most of the hike and the interpretive signs were beautifully done (both in style and content). As stated before, there are some areas that have a steep drop-off so keep a watch on small children. We hiked this earlier this spring as well when the Creek was a little higher...still absolutely beautiful on this hike. There are several geocaches along the trail as well but take the coordinates with you when you go and use your GPS as phone service is spotty.

Hiking

The yellow trail is a nice easy walk with several inclines for a little extra cardio. The trails are nicely maintained and well-marked. It takes us about 45-50 minutes to complete, at a moderate pace, but longer if we decide to enjoy the "peek-a-boo" views of the lake and other pretty scenery. When we don't have time to travel, this is an easy local option. Two weeks ago, there were quite a few muddy sections, but fairly easy to navigate. Today, it was much better. We saw a few squirrels playing and a deer grazing nearby.

this was a great hike. tons of wildflowers, different terrain features, and a lot of shaded areas. Not sure where the 4.7 miles came from, as its definitely longer than that.

Great hike. Would be a great trail for kids and dogs. The lakes are beautiful and crystal clear and there is a lot of room around each lake to sit and relax before heading back down.

Great trail with lots of loops for variation. Nothing steep but beautiful. Would be good for kids. I did see a black bear cross the trail about 75yds in front of me. We looked at each other for a few moments then it ran off into the woods.

A beautiful hike with so many trail options. Sleepy Hollow was my personal favorite! The trail is well kept full of flowers tall mature pine trees and some wildlife. Saw a beautiful white tail deer! Highly recommend this hike I feel that it is good for all skill levels. It was heavily trafficked with kind mountain bikers but not too much of a problem

Nice trail. Was surprised to see it was all paved, I didn't expect that! Did a quick out and back with my wife and kids from Cataldo to Kellogg. First ten miles were gorgeous, last few were a little dull. Saw a bull moose which was very cool

Gorgeous hiking trails. Many loops to choose from. We did around 2 miles of the trails and were in love with the scenery. Gorgeous wild flowers, heavily wooded, nice trails. There are quite a few mountain bikers but that was no big deal. Highly recommend.

We took the Bench Lakes Trail to the Junction then back down via Trail 101. There’s a fallen tree over the beginning of the trail. Trail 101 is a little sketchy with very narrow and rocky portions. Loved seeing the waterfall and new bridge upon return to the inlet. My recording info didn’t start til after we’d started. We decided not to go to the Lakes due to a knee injury flare up not long after we started. It was still a fun and beautiful day!! Sunday July 12, 2020
