Make the fairly strenuous climb up Caribou Ridge on the Caribou Ridge National Recreation Trail, passing several viewpoints along the way, before reaching the Mount Coeur d’Alene Picnic Area and Trailhead. You then climb another 0.8 mile on the Mount Coeur d’Alene Trail through the mountain forest to a cabin at the summit of Mount Coeur d’Alene. The lower 2.6 miles of this trail is generally rougher, rockier, narrower, and steeper than is the rest of the course. Dogs are permitted but must be under control. The route is open to hikers only up to the junction with Trail 227. Above there, horses are allowed, as are 2-wheeled vehicles at certain times of the year.

Local Maps: Coeur d’Alene Mountain USGS quad covers the area. OnXmaps and the National Geographic Idaho topo on CD-ROM cover the area but show this trail somewhat inaccurately, as does the USDA Forest Service Idaho Panhandle / Coeur d’Alene National Forest Map. The Forest Service map is very small-scale and not very good as a hiking map.
