Coeur d'Alene

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is a 72-mile long paved pathway that spans across the Idaho Panhandle from Plummer to Mullan. This area is located just south of the City of Coeur d'Alene and east of Spokane, Washington. The route of the trail follows the abandoned right-of-way of the Union Pacific Railroad and is very rural with spectacular scenery. There is a good chance of observing wildlife, including deer, moose and bears.

The trail travels through miles of scenic beauty, through evergreen forests, past Chatcolet Lake, crosses the lake with a spectacular and historic 0.8-mile long railroad bridge, goes past several more lakes, alongside the meandering Coeur d'Alene River, through rural communities, state parks, farmland and open prairie. The western half of the trail is located far from the major roadways and the eastern half follows alongside Interstate 90 and goes through a number of small towns.
