ATV Trails in Kellogg, Idaho
Kellogg, Idaho, is one of the largest towns in the upper panhandle of the state, with a population of just over 2,300 as of the 2000 census.

Musselshell Meadows

The Musselshell Meadows ATV trail is one large loop that was designed with beginner or novice riders in mind. The main loop is 12 miles long, and there are many smaller loops that are connected to the main Musselshell Meadow Loop. Drivers here will want to bring their own food and water, as this is an isolated area that doesn't offer any services at all. This trail isn't completely isolated--some of the side loops connected to Musselshell also connect to other long ATV trails in the area.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is over 72 miles long, and is a "rails to trail" trail, meaning that the trail itself was built following a no longer used rail line. ATV riders will need to share this trail with walkers, hikers, and cyclists, as well. The trail runs through several towns and often follows a river as it carves through northern Idaho. There is no specifically set up ATV course here, and drivers will have to go at a slow pace since there will be others on the trail, but this trail offers a very scenic drive through the panhandle of Idaho.
