Trail Overview

Shoshone Ridge is a scenic trail off of Coeur d'Alene River Road (208). There's a great view at the end of 602, plenty of room to turn around, as well as parking for 3-4 cars. There's a hiking trailhead here as well (Shoshone Ridge Trail #81). You can take a hairpin turn and continue another 1.5 miles up Little Guard Peak Road where you'll find a lookout tower. The tower is available to rent during the summer and has some amazing panoramic views. There's a gate that will be closed when the lookout is occupied by renters.

Shoshone Ridge starts off fairly easy, but ruts and washouts get worse as you near the end. It narrows to a single-width road with occasional spots to pass. True to its name, this road follows a ridge and has a steep drop-off at times. Use caution in snow or mud conditions. Snow is typically present in May.
