    Coeur d'alene, ID trails? Need beta please.


    Doing a fam trip July 6-12. I've looked on Trailforks, but it's hard to ascertain what's good.

    Hopeful parameters:
    1. 30-45 min max driving time from Coeur d'alene.
    2. 2 hour-ish ride I can sneak off and do on my own in the morning.
    3. I'm ok with vert and a some hiking but ideally not a LOT of hike-a-bike.
    4. Primarily single track.
    5. At least moderately difficult. I'll be solo so double black is out unless it's just short sections here and there.
    6. Good times.

    Hoping someone can help me out here?

    Hello. Several great trail systems in the Spokane/CDA area.

    1). Beacon/Sekani in Spokane is probably the best for a mixture of different trails. It has a bit of everything. Beginner, flow, jump park, and some salably tech. Hard to get lost on, but a lot of trails. About 30 minutes from CDA.

    2) Mica Peak is a new trail system just southeast of CDA off of Hwy 27 I believe. About a 2-21/2 hour loop. Nice grind up and a fun new flow downhill trail back to car with some great views of the valley.

    3). Trail 257 is just east of CDA off of I-90 at east end of lake. Ride up the road from campground and up trail 257 to FS #439 and up and over to Caribou Ridge Trail. Continue down it for a spicy finish or cut off on Trail 258 and back in to 257 down.

    4) Bernard Peak/Farragut State Park area.

    5) Saltese Uplands near Liberty Lake. Mellow loop rides. Pretty easy ridge ride with nice views of Liberty Lake and area.

    6) Canfield Mountain is right in CDA. Have not ridden here much, but I know a lot of people like it. A good grind to the top. Watch for moto traffic.

    7). Mt. Spokane just northeast of Spokane. Highest peak in area. Probably the closest we have to west side trails. Rooty forested goodness. No lift service, but ride up is worth it and it is easy to shuttle.

    I will find out Wednesday if I have vacation that week. If so, I am happy to show you around a bit or if you have any questions. Have fun!

    #3 & #4 above are the best, just imo.
    Haven't made it out to my Spokane yet...
