Distance: 3.3 mile loop. Elevation gain: 1,000 feet. Inland Northwest pine forest trail. Features a high viewpoint over Lake Coeur d'Alene. Wildflowers in the summer & golden larches in the fall!

Wander through a classic Inland Northwest pine tree forest as you climb up to Mineral Ridge. At the top, explore historical Caribou Cabin and take the spur trail to the left to an abandoned mine. There is a lot of history scattered on this short loop hike! Continue past the cabin and take in views of Lake Coeur d'Alene before climbing down and completing the loop. Explorers of all ages will love this hike!

This hike features the beauty of every season! In the spring and summer, enjoy a bounty of wildflowers. Golden larches above grace the trail with stunning fall color. When snow arrives, pack your snowshoes for a trek through a winter wonderland!
