We walked parts of the trail on one day and biked all of it on another day. It is paved and well marked. There are benches along parts of the trail and areas where there are bathrooms. Parks are accessible from the trail. There are plenty of areas to get food when in the downtown area. There are no significant elevation changes.

We biked the trail from CDA Resort to Post Falls and back. Then we rode to Higgens Point. The trail is an easy one and will not take you on any roads. Some of the Centennial Trail went along side I-90 but never touched the highway. There are rest stops along the way if you need one. Part of the trail went through neighborhoods and we talked with a few locals. We ended at the Post Falls Park before going back to CDA. The park is very pretty with lots of water views of the Spokane River and the dam.

We rode our bikes from the Coeur D’Alene Resort to Higgins Point! 6.5 miles each way! Rent the e-bike!! The hills are challenging! For a 55 year old in decent shape and kids in their 20’s we were glad we had the e-bikes! Very enjoyable! Take a picnic and stop at beacon point to eat! Restrooms along the way!

Although I'm sure the views would be fabulous, we decided to skip taking on the hill leaving Higgen's Point and got on the trail near Tony's On The Lake to bike into CDA. The ride along the lake is beautiful, but there are many unprotected sections of riding the path parallel to the rode and once past the golf resort the trail meanders through neighborhoods on the street until you get to McEuen Park. This park is lovely and you can hop off on any street to Sherman Ave. to check out the shops and restaurants. We rode on to City Park to listen to live music at the bandshell, and to check out the historically restored carousel. We did a little people watching from the benches along the boardwalk at the beach and rode north to where the trail goes under Hwy 95. The trail is quite busy through the parks and we had to carefully dodge pedestrians. The North Idaho Centennial Trail around CDA and the lake is a busy shared pathway and it serves its purpose, but we much preferred the scenic, less crowded Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes between Harrison and Plummer Point.

I hope I got this right but we rode the Bike Trail from Silver Beach Marina to Higgens Point. It was about 5 miles one way with some hills. Very nice ride along the Lake

Runs along the river. Lots of building of new parks and condos that are becoming very scenic with new parks. Plenty of places to stop, eat, or hit a restroom. Does continue along the interstate which we chose to stop at. A good portion does go through the downtown resort area/beach which can be very busy, especially if a marathon is in progress.

Beautiful bike trail that runs through the heart of Coeur d'Alene. We picked it up in the heart of downtown and rode all the way to the south end. (About 15 miles round trip). There is a section where you have to go through a neighborhood but it's well marked and easy to follow. Loved the scenic views. (Warning: There are some hills, so be prepared). Well worth it though, and you can rent bikes in town. We rented ours from Coeur d'Alene Bike Company, which is about one block off the trail.

We wrote a couple of times from downtown Coeur d'Alene toward the border with Washington, and East to the end of the trail. It was a very nice spots and some that were not so good but the paving was excellent all the way around. A much better ride is the route of the Coeur d'alenes, that one is awesome

This is a great and safe way to see the area. No need to worry about cars. I wish more places had trails like this one.

We decided to ride the section of trail along Lake Coeur d’Alene and so glad we did. The vistas are spectacular and it was good to ride the entire waterfront from the Spokane river, through town and out to Higgins Point. First of all try to get a trail map from the info center in town. To get to the trailhead we drove I-90 west for a short distance then Exit 11 to Seltice Way. It’s very easy and you will see the parking lot/trail head. We headed in the direction of town on the marked trail but it soon ended. You will have to make your way through the Riverstone Park community to find where the trail is along the river. *this is unmarked* Otherwise take a moment to orient yourself at the parking lot. As you face the trail take the path to the left or away from town. It soon branches to north for Prairie Trail, west for the trail towards Spokane and south leading to the river and Higgins Point. We loved riding this section of the trail, there is a climb at about mile 20 but you get to coast to the point.
