Distance: 2+ mile loop. Lake views along the trail. Multiple beaches to explore. Year round accessibility close to town!

Looking for a short adventure hike on a road trip or a beach to hang out at for a weekend? Tubbs Hill features a 2 mile loop trail that winds along the shoreline of Lake Coeur d'Alene and through an Inland Northwest pine forest. You will see wildlife such as deer, squirrel, and many wildflowers in the summer! Several pebble and sand beaches branch off from the trail along the shore. If it's warm, wear a swimsuit! Also, bring your snowshoes for a snowy winter trek from December-February!

Our favorite place to stop for food after hiking Tubbs Hill is the Bakery by the Lake located at 601 East Front St. Happy exploring!

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Nice Secluded Beaches

If you're looking for a more "outdoors" experience at the beach, this is a great option in Coeur d'Alene. There are several beaches off the main trail to hike down to and spend a sunny afternoon. There's also a rope swing off the trail if you want to get in the water with a splash.

Start on the Sanders Beach side (park here: ~800 S 10th St) if you're looking for some beautiful, less-busy hideaway beaches to spend the day.

My absolute favorite "in-town" park. Come here every week. Love it in the off season, but crowded in the summer (of course!).
