Hiking and BikingHiawatha Mountain Bike Trail
The Route of the Hiawatha trail is the crown jewel of rail-to-trail projects in the country. Over 15 miles of railroad track has been converted into a beautiful and gentle downhill biking and walking trail. There are ten tunnels, including the 1.7 mile St. Paul Pass Tunnel, and seven trestle bridges up to 230 feet high. Riders begin at Lookout Pass Ski Area where mountain bike rentals, including helmets and lights, and an optional return shuttle service are available.
Mineral Ridge Scenic Area
The Mineral Ridge Trail is a 3.3-mile loop that offers outstanding views over Beauty and Wolf Lodge bays of Coeur d’Alene Lake, with excellent interpretive signage along the trail.
Each winter from November through February a migrating population of up to 150 bald eagles visit the area to feed on spawning kokanee salmon.
Right in the heart of downtown Coeur d’Alene, explore the wild beauty of the publicly owned Tubbs Hill peninsula with an easy trek on the Tubbs Hill Nature Trail. The two-mile trail loop along Lake Coeur d’Alene offers historical points along the way, plus there are terrific photo opportunities.
