Leaving Wallace, we will ride the Trails of Coeur d’Alene through Kellogg and Pinehurst. Then, we will veer off the trail up to the Cataldo Mission. The mission, also known as the Mission of the Sacred Heart, is the oldest building in Idaho and was constructed by Jesuit missionaries and the Coeur d’Alene Tribe beginning in 1850. The mission offers a unique perspective into the history of the area and has been a favorite of Ride Idaho’s participants for many years. This will be our lunch stop and you will have plenty of time to tour the mission, the parish house and the visitors center with a gift shop and museum.
After passing by Rose Lake, we arrive in Medimont, a small community surrounding North Idaho's Cave Lake and Medicine Lake. It is a rural and rustic retreat from city life, a slice of heaven for those who long for life on a lake. This area is also known as the Chain Lakes. This picturesque backdrop will be the perfect setting for out last night of the ride!
For our last night together, we will be camping at Kahn’s family farm along the banks of Cave Lake, a great location for photographs and to cap off a great week of riding and to share memories with all your new friends.
The only lodging accommodations in close proximity to camp is a new B&B that is scheduled to open in June of 2018. Call: 208-689-3910 for more information
