The North Idaho Centennial Trail is 23 miles long, extending from the Idaho/Washington state line to Higgins Point, 6 miles east of
Coeur d’Alene at the end of Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive. You can walk, jog, or bicycle on a Class I & II paved trail. At state line, it connects with the Spokane River Centennial Trail, which extends through Riverfront Park (22.5 miles west of the state line) and on to
Nine Mile Falls. 

Maintenance and Operation
Operation and maintenance of the Idaho Centennial Trail is a cooperative effort of the City of Coeur d'Alene, the City of Post Falls, Kootenai County, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, and the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation.
