Canfield Mountain Trail System

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Alt Names Canfield Trail System, Coeur d'Alene National Forest, Kelly Mountain, West Canfield Butte, Huckleberry Mountain, Skitwish Peak, Jump Trail, Cave Trail
Last Known Status Open
The Canfield Mountain Trail System offers about 30 miles of single-track motorcycle trails in a beautiful forest setting. The trails marked with numbers that run north-south present more of a challenge while the trails marked with letters running east-west are fairly mild. The terrain consists of steep drop-offs, rocky sections and scattered tree roots. Look to nearby Coeur d'Alene Lake and Lake Pend Oreille for boating and swimming opportunities.
