Canfield Mountain Trail System

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Alt Names

Canfield Trail System, Coeur d'Alene National Forest, Kelly Mountain, West Canfield Butte, Huckleberry Mountain, Skitwish Peak, Jump Trail, Cave Trail, Canefield

Last Known StatusOpen

The Canfield Mountain Trail System offers about 30 miles of single-track motorcycle trails with nice views of Hayden Lake. 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. A large portion of this trail system consists of narrow single track but Trail #1562 is open to ATVs that are 50 inches or less in width. Look to nearby Coeur d'Alene Lake and Lake Pend Oreille for boating and swimming opportunities.
