So what happens to area trails when we get this much snow? Charlie Miller, Director of the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation, says the Centennial Trail is being plowed by the Coeur d'Alene Parks Department any day we receive more than two inches of snow fall. Monte McCully can be spotted most days at 6 a.m. doing his part. The Post Falls and Kootenai County sections of the trail are not being plowed, however.
The Prairie Trail is also being cleared, also by Monte, but Miller it looks like he's only been able to make progress as far as Woodland Middle School so far.
Miller says that both trails are great for cross country skiing and snowshoeing but he'd like to remind snowmobilers and ATV-ers the trails are for non-motorized use only.
Also, thanks Monte for all your hard work! And to the Spokesman 'Huckleberries' blog for the picture of the Centennial Trail above.
