4th of July Pass, Coeur d’Alene, Id

2 Days

Thank you to all involved in keeping these trails open for all to ride and enjoy the beautiful Idaho wilderness.

July 7th 2016-20 mi
July 8th 2016 38 mi
Exit 28 on I-90. There is a super large Trail Head , off the ramp to the north. We went north on the ATV trails and some forest service road. The trails are well groomed and maintained. We had a GPS,  FS paper maps and Avenza on the smart phone to track us. I downloaded the free Forest Service MVUM (Motor Vehicle Use Map)

We enjoyed each day of riding. We visited the warming shack, off the trail of 3220,  picked huckleberries, watched a deer, watching us, and drove through a lined path of Bear Grass along the trail.
We just made several loops depending on how long we wanted to stay out.
