Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike along the marshlands at the head of Cougar Bay and the shore of beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene, then climb to a viewing platform for an even better view. Reader boards along the way provide interesting information about the area.

Much of this trail crosses land that was once owned by John Pointner, who conveyed it to the BLM for a wildlife sanctuary. John Pointner is buried on the property. This trail is open to hikers only; dogs must be under close control."
