The North Idaho Centennial Trail is a 24-mile long paved pathway that spans between the border with Washington and Higgens Point on Lake Coeur d'Alene in Northern Idaho. Much of the trail travels through residential neighborhoods to the west of Downtown Coeur d'Alene. To the east of the downtown area, the trail offers miles of travel away from traffic along the north shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene and has lovely views across the lake.

At the Idaho / Washington State Line, the North Idaho Centennial Trail connects to the Centennial Trail for the State of Washington that travels west into Spokane. From this location, the North Idaho Centennial Trail heads east and crosses the Spokane River using a bridge that was constructed for the railroad. The trail roughly parallels Interstate 90, but has a buffer between itself and the roadway. At S. Pleasant View Road, the trail kicks to the south and goes through the residential neighborhoods that lie just north of the Spokane River. There is a short gap in the trail from S. Greensferry Road and S. Ross Point Road where trail users will need to use local streets to reach the next section. The trail continues east adjacent to Interstate 90, eventually kicking to the south to go through the Downtown Coeur d'Alene. East of the downtown area, the trail wraps around the golf course for Couer d'Alene Resort and then follows the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene to Higgen's Point.
