Trail Overview

Coal Creek Trail is located in the Coeur d'Alene National Forest north of Kellogg, Idaho. The south end of the trail starts at the intersection with Graham Ridge at 5,400 feet, and steadily descends 3,000 feet to the north trailhead off of National Forest Development Road 9. The entire length of the trail is a narrow, shelfy, single track with significant cliff exposure. Only one small log was across the trail in mid-June, otherwise the trail was clear and mostly smooth dirt with no rocks. One rock obstacle half way through the trail was difficult due to the exposure and slightly off-camber nature of the trail. The north trailhead sits along the Coeur d'Alene river.


The trail is intermediate due to consistent cliff exposure.
