Tubbs Hill Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Taylor Nadauld

Distance: 2 mile loop. Duration: 30 minutes. Elevation gain: 295 ft. Great trail for any level of hiker. Late May/early June brings beautiful, bright yellow flowers all over the hill. Tons of beautiful, secluded beach spots to swim or enjoy the view. A few options for hiking, including a short, moderately strenous hike up the face of the hill, and much easier hikes around the loop of the hill. Changing views around every corner, including the infamous Lake Coeur d'Alene which accompanies you for most of the hike. A photographer's dream.

The trail begins at the base of Tubb's Hill, located just on the outskirts of the Coeur d'Alene Resort. There is usually a fair amount of people on the trail come good weather, though the hike is secluded, quiet, and relaxing for the most part.

It begins with a gradual climb, and depending on which route you take, and is either bottoms out for nearly the rest of the way, or becomes much steeper as you ascend the face. The more popular loop route takes you on a walk beside the lake, starting with a few steps over some boulders.

The scene eventually pulls you away from the lake and into a cooler, secluded forest, though it is still clearly marked. You'll cross a wooden hanging bridge. Eventually the trail leads to a road, which you cross, and in a few minutes you're back to where you started at the base of the hill in the heart of the city, once more.

So beautiful! Lake views, scenic, easy!

Absolutely LOVED this beginner/intermediate “hike” loop!! The lake is off to your right, always in view, for 75% of the loop. It is so stunning! Very easy to walk with kids, especially ages 6+. Bring water and your camera, & a snack or two if you plan on taking your time. The most beautiful trail I’ve been on, for such scenic views!!

Family friendly hike with a 250ft climb over last mile

Fun round trip with great views of the lake and Couer d’alene, all the way around. Half the trail is coastal and the second half climbs over the hill with views over the town. Our three year old made it with a few brief rests. Lots of little beaches to explore on the route and a fun suspension bridge towards the end. Loop route.

Easy And Beautiful

One of the prettiest hikes I've been on, so many wild flowers and during a cloudy rainy day there was no one around. Many small trails all leading up to lookouts or down to the beaches. Very easy hike, no experience needed and easy access. Map take you straight to a gate then you continue on foot.
