Trail Overview

Fun single track. Follows a creek bed and is in full shade so the trail is generally wet and cooler year-round. Watch for slick spots. From the Little North Fork River Road, the trail begins by crossing the Little North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River. The river crossing is generally 12-18" deep. There are smaller creek crossings and wet areas throughout the trail but this is the only significant water crossing. The trail is very flowy. Occasional cattle may be seen in the area during the summer months. Heading from the river it ends on Forest Service road 1532. Follow this road to the west and you can end up at the old Horse Haven airstrip and then loop the roads back to your starting point, or turn around and ride back the way you came.
