Close to the Coeur d'Alene Resort it provides good exercise and a great view. There was a mountain lion warning posted when we were there in November, but the sighting was in the summer and it was long gone by then.

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!
