We couldn’t really find a definitive trail or path for a hike. The scenery along the river was beautiful. It seemed more like wandering aimlessly and we felt like we were in the way of the frisbee golfers.

Very short but a nice little walk to see a great view of the falls. We saw a snake. Lots of people with dogs like us, busy.

Enjoyed this hike with my three kids and small dog. Several people climbing the rock faces, a few others on the trail(s). We came across a large gopher snake sunbathing in the middle of the trail near the river. Then saw another smaller snake that quickly went into some shrubs. A lot of dogs on the trail. One person, however, allowed their very large and aggressive dog to charge my small dog two times and never put it on a leash. It scared my kids. That wasn’t cool. But overall beautiful scenery and plenty of parking.

Bueno conditions today. Hunters up top on the road baiting for bears off of the east side of the ridge. Also, I saw a golden retriever so that was cool.

This Trail is enchanting! We enjoyed all the different sections. We felt transported to hobbiton! We loved the switch backs up the hill side and spent time at the top enjoying the gorgeous views! Highly recommend! Our four kids loved it too

rocky and steep going up with chains to help you up but we love this trail. a good workout. for some reason we've only done the hike up to the top and then back down. we finally did the walk around the crater and it was beautiful. the wild flowers are peaking out with vibrant colors. the land formations and view are worth the hike. it seems to always be windy up there. there's no shade so the wind is welcomed in the summer. I believe this hike is also called R Mountain. loved it! lots of families with kids and university students usually come out on nice days.

Some spots are a little more slippery than others due to loose dirt but the place was beautiful. Just remember to take your trash out!!

Boy... Never really been hiking before. This thing kicked my ass. But the view at the top was amazing! Tottaly worth it!

More of a casual stroll in the trees than a hike. Some decent views. Lots of mosquitos - bring bug spray.

Hike Boulder Lake Trail today 5/17/2019. Fallen trees were cut and road is now open. Didn’t quite make it to Boulder lake. We turned back right before the lake as there were boulders to navigate and quite a bit of snow hiding the trail. Lost the trail several times due to snow but we were able to pick it back up to that point . Still was awesome hike along Boulder Reservoir. Rain turned to snow.

It goes along the Warm River the whole way, so you get a gorgeous view of lazy flow of the water and sometimes rapids. The whole trail used to be an old rail road back in the wild west times and although my wife and I only followed it up to the old train tunnel. (3 miles there, 3 miles back) The path eventually will lead you all the way to Yellowstone. Overall super fun trail!

Hiked on May 16, 2019. Lovely gradual uphill climb until the last .3 mile which was definitely a steeper incline. Well maintained multi-use trail however there are ruts from motor vehicles. Currently several stream crossings due to snow melt, so wear waterproof shoes for stone hopping. Lots of wildflowers, plenty of shade, and beautiful views at the top.

We went last week taking the shorter blue post loop. We followed the trail clockwise (from a top down with north as 12 o’clock) had trouble near the end of the loop finding the last few posts, so we back tracked. There was a small storm that blew in mid day with a little hail. It’s pretty wide open so if it’s a windy day in town, it’s hella windy here. Don’t bring your dog unless they are used to wearing boots, and you are comfortable watching to make sure they don’t lose one.

Nice easy walk with good views and history of Post Falls.

Easy walk. Trail signs focus on preservation.

This place was beautiful!! Didn't see the lower easy trail until we got out and started up the mountain, but down below was so beautiful! The path was easy enough for all my kids, and had lots to explore and discover! We will be going back when we have more daylight to see what we missed!

This is a fantastic trail that starts off paved but gradually turns to crushed rock/dirt. There are benches along the way and signs every so often talking about wildlife, plants, or historical information. There are lovely creeks along the trail and lots of forest and shade. From the parking area if you go across the road there is a small trail that leads to the snake river. Be aware that to get to the trailhead you have to drive on a gravel road for a bit. Less than a mile and easily passable by cars.

The trail was difficult to find - we found other reviews with directions were very helpful. From the National Forest Service road you need to turn left onto a road that is unmarked. AllTrails does have the trailhead in the correct spot Google just doesn’t get you there. Do a little homework before heading out and it should be fine. The trail itself is definitely challenging. Most of the trail is narrow, making it difficult to use poles. We had to stop when there was just too much snow to keep going at about 2.4 miles in. Nice views and occasional flowers keep you motivated throughout the hike, but sadly we didn’t get to the top.

My favorite trail...birds singing, water, flowers, not too many people.

Great quick hike if you’re in town! Our five year old made it the whole way and loved it!

It was a moderate hike with spectacular views. Took my 14 yo and 9 yo on the 6 mile loop. Trail head states it’s is closed due to overlook being out. Overlook/bridge is damaged and needs repair but we were able to cross. There’s a beach area half way which was a good place for the dog to swim and we soaked our feet. It’s hot bring lots of water. There is another parking lot past the entrance. Park there it’s near the trail head.
