trails of wonder
What used to be an abandoned Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way is now a flourishing North Idaho Centennial Trail system. In northwestern Coeur d’Alene, the beautiful Prairie Trail was made possible through a cooperative effort between ignite cda and the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation (NICTF). The 5.25-mile section of trail winds through two city parks and is lined with trees and impressive views of the mountains and Spokane River.
Stretching from the Riverstone development to the western edge of Coeur d’Alene on the Rathdrum Prairie, the popular Prairie Trail connects northern Coeur d’Alene with the Spokane River corridor and downtown. Ignite cda also played a pivotal role in construction of new segments of the trail system in the Higher Education Campus along the Spokane River and within McEuen Park downtown.
