Quick and easy hike with a big reward. Beautiful wooded and well marked trail with lots of places to stop and take a break. Family friendly and well trafficked.

Fun little hike!

Beautiful wooded trail. Family friendly, well trafficked and marked. Cool breezes keep you cool as you move up in elevation thanks to the creek that parallels the trial. Highly recommend both for its beauty and the history behind it.

Really nice trail along the shoreline. Great fishing spots, I was hoping to see eagles and deer but no luck. Kept going to the boat launch, then took upper part of the trail back through the forest. I’ll definitely be back.

40 minutes north of Ketchum. Hike is easy about 3.5 miles. Elevation is 800 feet to the lake. Lots of flowers to see along the way and beautiful lush prairie. The lake is spectacular and worth hanging there for sometime. Enjoy.

Beautiful hike...slow and steady accent, nice water opportunities for the dogs. Today the lupine was in full bloom and smelled amazing. GOOD TO KNOW; there is a grill at the lake !

We didn’t go all the way due to time constraints, but we made it about 1.5 miles in. Starts a beautiful rushing river/creek, turns into a shady walk under trees on a very slightly muddy trail (no troubles), then becomes a slight incline in the sun, and returns again to a shady walk. We saw a couple snakes, beware!

We didn’t go all the way since we had limited time; made it about 1.5 miles in. Beautiful scenery the entire way with a creek/river, flowers, meadows, and tall grass. Sounds changed with each bend we turned. Highly recommended!

Great trail! Really kid friendly. I took my 8 week old in a baby wrap and my 3 year old on this. There was a section that had a bit of a drop off on the side, so I held my 3 yo hand for that part, but other than that he walked it by himself. There isn’t much shade, so I suggest going early in the morning or later evening when it’s cooler out. There are a lot of people, bikers and dogs on this trail, but we didn’t mind.

Amazing hike! I did it with my husband, 6 and 10 year old. There was a little complaining from the 6 year old, but she did fine and once we were at the top both kids were in heaven. This is truly one of the those perfect displays of Mother Nature that comes together in awe inspiring beauty and function. A steamy hot spring comes out of the earth right next to a stream, the water mixes and settles in various pools with different temperatures on the way down. We tried all of the pools and enjoyed the entire experience immensely. The hike up was pretty, next to the stream, and there were various places to take a dip and cool off as it was 80 and sunny. The trail is well maintained and easy to find (literally just pull off the highway). We went on a Monday and there were still quite a few people there but it wasn’t bad. We still enjoyed several of the pools to ourselves at various times. One downside is we saw a bit of trash left behind by others, I know this is a popular trail but please remember to pick up after yourself!

visited on 7/3/20 a sheriff was there when we arrived....we asked him if we could access and go down, he said yes we were good to go. These are my favorite springs, but they are definitely highly trafficked.

Easy walk with an amazing view of the falls. Enjoy!

great Trail, and good people!

Great little trail with lots of diversity. The trail seems to alternate between stretches of shade and stretches of shade. It is really a lovely little (1.5 mile) hike!

Excellent trail. Plenty of shade. Trail in great shape. Glimpses of the Sawtooth peaks for about the first half but then it opens up to simply awesome! Gotta go all the way to the second lake. Rewarding. you will certainly earn the view. Downhill on the way back.

The trails were very well maintained and easy to follow! This was my first solo backpacking trip and it was so amazing! I started out hiking counter clockwise and ended up staying the night at Edith lake, which was very quiet and not to buggy. Then I hiked back to the main trail and stayed at Alice lake the second night. Alice lake is pretty busy with people but the view is indescribable.

As a sea-level northeasterner, this has been my favorite hike since visiting the region. Disclaimer: I only did 2 miles (4 total in and out). Where a stream intersects with the trail there was a little bit of mud but on the whole trail, that was it. There trail is about half in shade in an afternoon hike but I imagine in the morning there would be a lot more. Trail starts out wide and narrows to a one-person width but this wasn't an issue for me at all. Saw 5 people the whole time. Lots of parking was available and along the trail I spotted several spots to camp, some being really close to the run for water fillups for multi-day stays. There were wildflowers everywhere and they were so beautiful! Near mile 2 is a big clearing and meadow where you can see the aftermath of an avalanche from year(s) past. It was neat to see the power of nature and trees bent at 90 degrees from their roots and some still blooming for the summer. The trail was so full of life.

Hiked 7/4/2020 in the morning. I hiked up. I had lunch at Sky House. I took the chairlift down. Beautiful hike. No bugs, no mud. Not much shade. Beautiful view of the mountains and Lake Pend Oreille.

Super great trail, don't recommend when 80+ degrees though.

good hike, trail head is a bit hard to find, but once you're on it it's pretty quick moving. the creek / River crossing is cold and slick.

Some of the poles are easy to find but some are more difficult, they really need to fix them up. Other than that, it’s such a fun, unique hike. It’s only a mile but definitely feels longer since it’s so hot and some of the lava rock is difficult to scale.

so beautiful no words

Kinda went off trail for a minute. Overall it was a great trail with the family!
