This part of the Coeur d'Alene National Forest offers over 25+ miles of designated ATV trails plus forest service roads to explore. The main trail follows the side of a mountain and has some gradual elevation changes there are some steep dropoffs, so use caution.

There is a designated staging area with informational kiosk located off Forest Service Road 400 but to access the actual trailhead you will have to do some additional traveling. The western trailhead can be accessed about six miles off Forest Service Road 409. The eastern trailhead can be reached by heading a couple miles south from the staging area and turning right (west) onto Forest Service Road 257.

Please note that the ATV trails are open to machines 50 inches or less in width but there are some old forest service roads that can be used by wider vehicles. Dispersed camping is permitted but for those looking for a designated campsites try Bumble Bee Campground. Steamboat Creek can be used to tie into the Laverne and Bumble Bee trails. Cabin rentals are just a short distance away which include the historic Magee Ranger Station and Avery Creek Cabin.
