Named one of the top 25 trails in the United States, the 72-mile paved Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes spans the Idaho panhandle between the towns of Mullan and Plummer. The trail begins in Silver Valley, continues past Lake Coeur d’Alene, and rolls through farmlands to Plummer. The smooth asphalt trail is perfect for road bikers, and in-line skaters and has many access points.
