All about the Trail: The North Idaho Centennial Trail is a NON-MOTORIZED, multi-use recreational trail, which meanders for 24 miles from the state line at the Idaho/Washington border to beautiful Higgens Point, six miles east of Coeur d'Alene.
This scenic trail runs along the Spokane River to Post Falls where it runs through neighborhoods and eventually to wooded areas leading to Coeur d'Alene. At the west end of Coeur d'Alene the trail again meets the Spokane River and follows it to the pristine Lake Coeur d'Alene. The trail then follows the lake shoreline to Higgens Point, an Idaho State Park, which draws throngs of spectators in the late fall and early winter to view the annual visit of Bald Eagles as they migrate south.
This scenic trail is composed primarily of Class I separated and paved trail with some small segments of Class II trail. The trail has numerous rest areas, scenic views and historical interpretative signs to add to the enjoyment of one of the most beautiful trail systems in the country. The trail, which was built by dedicated public funds, has received national acclaim; being designated a Millennium Trail by Hillary Clinton in 1999.
The Prairie Trail Paved in the summer of 2008, the Prairie Trail is the newest addition to the North Idaho Centennial Trail System. The 4 mile spur follows the old Union Pacific railroad from it's intersection with the Centennial Trail at the Seltice Way/ I-90 bridges northwest to Huetter Rd. Along the way the Prairie Trail connects over 6 neighborhoods, 6 schools, and the Kroc Community Center to the Centennial Trail and the Coeur d'Alene downtown corridor. The trail itself is 16 feet wide, 4 feet wider than the original trail.
The Centennial Trail System The North Idaho Centennial Trail continues across the Washington border as the Spokane River Centennial Trail. Under separate jurisdiction the Spokane River Centennial Trail continues for 37 miles through Spokane west to 9 Mile. In total the two trails combined provide over 60 miles of continuous trail for safe recreation and alternative transportation. The North Idaho Centennial Trail System offers accessibility to walkers, runners, and cyclists of all ages and abilities.
The North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation was established in 1989 as a non-profit organization to oversee the maintenance, stewardship, and continued improvements of the trail.
The Foundation's work is funded entirely through memberships, donations and grants. Please consider becoming a financial supporter of your North Idaho Centennial Trail so that it will always remain an integral part of your community.
