Mineral Ridge National Recreation Trail

Idaho 97 Scenic
Coeur D Alene, ID 83814

The 3.3-mile trail was part of the first BLM recreation site developed in Idaho.  Construction began in 1963.  In 1982, the trail was designed as a National Recreation Trail and offers an invigorating hike and beautiful views of Lake Coeur d'Alene.  A Trail Guide describes the plants, animals and interrelationships of the forest at 22 marked stations along the trail. 

The Scenic Area has paved parking that serves as a trailhead and picnic area.  There are pleasantly landscaped turf areas, drinking water, two picnic shelters with tables, pit toilets and trash receptacles.  All trailhead facilities except the upper picnic shelter are accessible to visitors with disabilities.  The Mineral Ridge Boat Launch lies below the Scenic Area.
