Apart from a few step sections, this is a pretty easy going hike. The wildflowers were out and it was a great afternoon.

I would give more stars if I could. I did this hike with my 10 year old yellow lab on Sunday, July 12, 2020 and it was epic. The weather was perfect, the views were heavenly. I didn’t want to leave. She had a ball swimming :) and we took some really beautiful photographs.

simply amazing! backpacked in and spent one night. trail was difficult at the end but totally worth it! after you rest at the top, climb a little further to a peak to get a even more amazing view!

Awesome hike. Pretty ‘mellow’ relatively compared to other sawtooth trails but wow the bank for the buck is rich! Middle and upper Cramer lakes are just spectacular. The river crossing down low is only mid shin if you just look a little for the right spot to cross. Plenty of creeks on the way up for the pup to stay hydrated. We spent two nights and did a day hike up the pass towards hidden lake that would be legit grinder w a pack on for those continuing on or looping down. Bugs surprisingly not nearly as bad as I anticipated. Would do this again in a heart beat. Enjoy!

Not sure why some people are saying nice easy nature hike, but when a hike starts with steel rope hand rails, you have to be prepared. We’re from Florida, flat Florida, to us it was difficult, but so very worth it! If anyone asks, I would suggest they do it.

HikingOff trailRockyScramble

Amazing trail. The first 3 miles are moderate and beautiful through the forest. The last mile is very difficult climbing up and scrambling a very steep Sandy and Rocky hill to get to the top of the Falls and then to the amazingly beautiful lake. Last mile of trail not always easy to find, but AllTrails map nailed it. Super helpful! Beautiful lake!

HikingMuddy

Trail was lovely. Most is through the forest and not along the river. Forrest is lush, provides lots of cover, and has amazing old growth cedar trees. Easy trail but more elevation gain than I thought. Lots of water along the way. You can expect muddy conditions in early season and after rain. We encountered a wolf on the trail. Keep your dogs close. There were lots of tracks and scat along the trail and we had a number of human users on the trail over a weekend. There were three well established campsites at the falls, although they are cooler as the water spray air conditioned us. The waterfall was really flowing at our time. Recorded trail was only half way 9.2 miles trailhead to falls. 18.5 roundtrip. There were also four or five other campsites where upper priest trail intersects with the continental trail. Lots of bugs but not too many mosquitoes yet.

Hiking

Awesome trail up to an even more awesome alpine lake surrounded by peaks. As other reviewers have mentioned, the last 5 miles of road to the trail head can be a bit unnerving- it’s more of an ATV trail so if someone is coming in the opposite direction there will be a bit of a game of chicken/someone will have to drive in reverse as there are limited pull off areas. Once at the Trailhead, the first 2-2.5 miles are a breeze, and then the last 1.5 miles climbs up through a boulder field. My gps tracked 4 miles to the lake, 8 round trip. Highly recommend this hike- bring water and sun screen as it is mostly sun exposed once you get they the forest.

Nice hike. Just do it in the morning since there is no shade. There are bugs, but nothing that bug spray can fix.

Hiking

If I could give this one 6 stars I would. Short, easy, and such a remarkable payoff. Bucket list and Instagram worthy. Park at the lower lot if you can and start by taking in the views looking down into the canyon. I didn’t feel like the ascent down was bad — there’s a rope to help you along the steep parts. Once you get down into the canyon it’s like you’re in another world. The waterfall is GORGEOUS and a lot bigger than it looks like in pictures. The tropical variations in the water color are so cool. Long pants are a good idea to avoid any tangles with nettles! Also you can swim in the water but it stays around 52 degrees so be prepared for a chilly dip! Like others have mentioned, after the largest pool there isn’t much worth seeing on the trail. Instead of taking it as a loop I recommend turning around here to do an out and back.

Awesome trail. Follows a really nice river. I was surprised to see so many people on it though.

Road biking

A faster method to and from Post Falls. Unlike Centennial which hugs I-90 going between PF and CDA, or the more scenic Spokane River trail that’s being constructed this year in the new Atlas Mill Park, the Prairie Trail is a straight shot and relatively level all the way to Kathleen, where it then descends as you head past the Kroc, around the college and downtown. As of now, this wonderful trail currently terminates at Huetter forcing you to bike through Big Sky Estates, Poleline or Praire with strong traffic to continue on your way west. However as soon as Union Pacific gives up this almost completely abandoned Feeley Spur rail line to Post Falls, we will finally have a completely paved trail from Rathdrum (via ID-53 trail) to Coeur d’Alene

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

HikingRockyWashed out

First 1/3 of the trail might as well just roll down because walking isn’t a safe option if it’s even remotely dry. Have hiked plenty of difficult trails and have to say this is literally the WORST trail I’ve ever had the pleasure of wasting 1 hour of my life on. The views aren’t very good because of how overgrown the vegetation is and the trail itself has been washed out for easily the past decade. My advice if you wanna see the Pillar Falls: rent a kayak or charter a helicopter because either one will be cheaper than the ER bill you get from attempting this hike. 0/10 would not recommend, go to Shoshone Falls and hike the Canyon Overlook Trail instead. Even Evil Knievel would not attempt this hike.

quite honestly the worst trail i have ever been on (and i consider myself a pro hiker). it's not worth the time; just kayak to the falls and save yourself the frustration. not maintained and not planned or built remotely well.

Hiked on 07/03/20. This was our second time hiking to Sawtooth Lake and it was just as impressive the second time. We hiked around the lake and continued about 1.5 miles to some unnamed lakes. Totally worth it!

Scramble

Hiked on 07/04/20. A great hike with lots of wildflowers. The last mile is definitely the hardest, step and a bit sketchy (be careful). Look for the log jam at the top of the waterfall to cross over the creek to the lake. Saw some trout in the lake. Take a fly rod!

Great trail - snow is finally melted, nice and dry trail. Very busy trailhead, exactly 2 miles to the lake from the trailhead, was able to do the hike with multiple 6 year olds, 4 year old and 2 year old without any complaints. Bring bug spray, fish were jumping, very beautiful hike.

Excellent trail. Very well marked with yellow disks. Starts out wide and flat but finishes narrow and steep.

Great views at the lakes at the end. You get partial views of Redfish lake along the way.
