Saturday Is Trail Building Day

No plans for Saturday? Well you've got plans now. This Saturday, September 19th, at 9:00 a.m., the Coeur d’Alene Parks Department is looking for volunteers to help with the construction of trails on Canfield Mountain in order to provide beginner-level mountain trails to the public. The work will involve the construction of switchbacks and new trails.

Volunteers are asked to bring gloves and water. If you have one of the following, please bring a mattock, pick, or shovel. Directions to the trailhead are as follows:

From exit 14 on I-90, drive 1.9 miles north on N. 15 St., turn right onto E. Shadduck Lane, drive 0.6 miles to N. Copper Way, left onto N. Copper Way, then left onto E. Mountain Vista Drive. The trail head is on the right, approximately 0.1 miles after you turn.

If you have any questions, please call Monte McCully, Trails Coordinator, at 208-292-5766.
