Tubbs Hill sits on a scenic peninsula jutting into Lake Coeur d’Alene, just south of the city’s center. This 120 acre park has several miles of trails, but the most popular is an easy 2 mile loop circling the shoreline. After offering up view after view of the lakeside, the trail dips back west through an evergreen forest. Most runners access Tubbs Hill from the main trailhead at 210 South 3rd Street. However, there is also an east side entrance off of 10th Street, where the East Tubbs Trail meets the main loop. For more variety, runners can tackle the challenging climb up the Summit Trail (blue trail on map), or explore one of the fire roads that spider through the park. This trail also makes a convenient add on to the North Idaho Centennial Trail.
