Blackwell Island Wetland Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Blackwell Island Wetland Trail is a short stroll through an interesting wetland area next to the Spokane River, a short distance south of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The area gets its name from the Blackwell Lumber Company, which had a mill close to here from 1909 to 1937. This mill was for a time one of the largest lumber producers in the region.

The boardwalk route heads northeast from the parking area. In a few yards you will come to a junction; turn right and walk northeasterly, through a grove of tall cottonwood trees. You will reach the first viewing platform in about 100 yards. Benches on the platform make this a great place to sit a while and watch the waterfowl and other wetland wildlife close to the Spokane River."
