Two Area Trails Honored

We knew the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes and the Route of the Hiawatha were cool, but apparently a lot of other people do too now.

The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy just named both trails to their 'Rail-Trail Hall of Fame.' Didn't know there was such a thing? I didn't either. Apparently that's because it's brand new and our trails were two of the first 25 nationwide to be honored.

Here's the story from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
