Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes Professional Review and Guide
"This description covers the western section of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, the part that is closest to the Spokane–Coeur d’Alene area. The 42-mile length of this route is too long for a day hike, and backpacking possibilities are limited because of the lack of campsites close to the trail. For these reasons, the best way to hike this trail is with a support shuttle from a base camp or other lodging close to the route.
Good places for shuttle pickup and drop-off are mentioned in the hike description as shuttle points. Much of the land along this part of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes is within a wildlife management area. Take your time along this easy trail and enjoy the wildlife. There are interpretive signs at most of the waysides that are well worth reading.
The Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes is accessible for visitors with physical challenges."
