Great 2 mile hike around Tubbs Hill! (Could be made shorter if you like). Scenic and challenging. A great addition to all the things to do around Coeur d Alene. We try to hike it upon every visit-recommend you give it a go! Carpe Diem!

We are a retired couple from Manitoba and enjoyed the paths on Tubbs Hill. We walked about 1/3 of the way around (it is 2.4 miles total) and after doing some hiking up and down, decided to walk back. It took us about 1.5 hours....More

This is a pretty easy loop hike. It is right on the lake for half of the hike. There are many places you can go down to the water. The upper hike is not well marked.

This is an easy hike and the views of Lake Coeur d’Alene are amazing! This is a must do while in Cd’A!

This is a must do in Coeur d'Alene. Great views. Just need to watch your footing a bit, it is a mountainous trail, but with only minor elevation changes. Highly recommend it.

Spent a week in CDA with some college buddies in August 201. The trails are well marked as you enter the nature preserve , with lots of choices to stay close to the lake or hike another 200' max higher to get some great views...More

Yes, but with caution for one spot. There is a short length of trail near the beginning of the lower, main trail (on the resort side) that's essentially large rock surfaces that are cliff side. A slip here if it's icy or... More

No! The trail is very narrow in places and it is not paved at all. It is mostly an uphill grade & then back down again. If you want to take an awesome walk on level, paved trails try the bike trail (Trail of the Coeur d... More
