Tubbs Hill: To Change Or Not?

Item: Mountain out of a Tubbs Hill: Lakeside trail is one of three big issues citizens have with McEuen plan/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The proposed changes include a new, eastern trailhead that would connect a wider, Americans with Disabilities Act compliant-trail across the north face of the hill. That new trail would connect with the current west entrance. Both entrances would be beautified, with possible water and garden features nearby. The new path would connect also with a path hugging the base of the hill completing an easily-accessed half mile hiking loop for anyone who might find Tubbs Hill's current trails too narrow or difficult. And along the top of the new trail, a portion of the hill would be cleared to create a sledding hill.

Question: Are there any changes to Tubbs Hill that you'd like to see?
