The trails of the Coeur D' Alene's are all paved and because they are on abandoned railroad beds, the maximum grade is only 4 percent. The easy riding is through some of the most scenic country along several rivers and the Coeur D'Alene lake. If...More

The section between Wallace and about Kingston is exposed and not all that scenic, with the mine tailings piled all around. But from there west, especially the fortyish miles between Cataldo and the bridge, is the most beautiful trail riding I have experienced. On a...More

Great easy paved 72 mile trail that meanders through a variety of scenery. We saw moose, elk and many species of birds. You bike next to creeks, rivers, ponds and lakes. Very easy to do in sections.

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is an easy ride wherever you ride. It is 72 miles long, and has many convenient trailheads along the way to park your vehicle for easy access to the trail. A must for travelers to North Idaho.
