The trail is only two miles each way and has a great trail surface. The climb is gradual. I learned a lot about Ed Pulaski and his fire crew. Beautiful creek most of the way.

We’ve lived in the Coeur d Alene area for years and have never done this hike. Can’t believe we’ve waited this long. Four mile r/t with 800 foot elevation gain so not too strenuous and fairly well maintained. Great views and interpretive information along the...More

I had been wanting to go on the Pulaski Trail for some time. It did not disappoint. Nice views of the woods and the creek. It's a four-mile round trip, and other reviewers are correct when they say there are some steep sections of the...More

The interpretive signs along this trail really make history come to life and make for an enjoyable experience. The trail itself is fairly narrow in some places, and it's a solid uphill "out" and downhill "back".

We didn't make it all the way to the mine tunnel as it was getting late in the day, but will definitely come back and go to the top. Very pretty hike along the creek with many waterfalls.

A semi-challenging and informative hike in a beautiful setting. The trail is well-marked and there are informational signs that tell the history of the 1910 forest fire aka The Big Burn.

The trail is about 2 miles each way. Very well marked. Everyone was attacked by yellow jackets about a quarter mile in, but that could have been a quirk. The mine itself is not much to look at.

The first mile is beautiful, not too difficult, and not scary. I took my almost 5-year-old daughter with and the closer we got to the top the more I was freaking out about holding on to her so she didn't fall off the side of...More

A bit steep in places but worth the history lesson. Loved the mileage markers and places to see the creek along the way.
