Life in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Nestled in the heart of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, my surroundings have become a playground for an array of outdoor recreations I adore. My mountain bike and I are no strangers to the numerous scenic trails dotting our landscape. From world-class biking destinations like Schweitzer Mountain Resort, Silver Mountain Resort, and Canfield Mountain, to the remarkable trails of Route of the Hiawatha and Farragut State Park, I’ve delighted in miles of breathtaking journeys.
Every weekend, I slip into the role of an adventure motorcyclist, as I navigate through the stunning Pacific Northwest on and off-road excursions. Our local parks, such as McEuen Park and City Park, provide idyllic settings for my leisure time, as they lay gracefully along the lake waterfront. Independence Point stands as another favorite of mine, offering a captivating view of Lake Coeur d’Alene that never ceases to amaze.
Hiking has become a cherished activity, as well, with trails on Tubbs Hill, Mineral Ridge, Canfield Mountain, and Mount Spokane Loop offering unforgettable adventures. My wife and I often take scenic drives along the Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway, the Mineral Ridge Scenic Area, and the Panhandle Historic Rivers Passage, with every mile presenting a new picturesque memory.
In the wintertime, I revel in the thrill of skiing and snowmobiling, frequenting popular spots like Schweitzer Mountain Resort, Silver Mountain Resort, and Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation Area. And when summer rolls around, I find joy in the tranquil beauty of our lakes. Activities like boating, fishing, and swimming in Lake Coeur d’Alene, Hayden Lake, Lake Pend Oreille, Priest River and the pristine Priest Lake area mark the epitome of my summer enjoyment.
