Canfield Mountain, located just north of Coeur d'Alene, is a "phenomenal" place to go motorbike riding, according to local OHV riders. The trail system in the area was created in the early 1990s through a partnership between the U.S. Forest Service and Idaho Department of Parks & Recreation, using funds from the state off-highway vehicle program, timber sale revenues and Forest Service trail-development monies. There are a multitude of trails to explore in the Canfield Mountain area. Trail A is a good choice for motorbike riders to do a loop ride and get to the know the area, and then there are much longer rides you can experience. Locals recommend Trail #28 to Horse Haven Meadows and back as a fun day-long motorbike ride. It's 80 miles round-trip, and takes a full tank of gas to make the full length of the ride. To reach the trailhead, go north on 15th Street in Coeur d'Alene to Nettleton Gulch Road. Turn right and follow Nettleton Gulch Road 2.2 miles to the trailhead. There are specific trails and road open to ATVs as well. See the trail map for details. Be aware that the Canfield Mountain trail system is open to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, in addition to motorbike riding and ATV riding. So be sure to slow down on blind corners and watch for other trail users.
