The railroad, an electric interurban, built this section of line in the early 20th century to link the towns of Spokane, Washington, and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The line was abandoned in the 1970's and the rail was removed during the 1980's and 1990's.
The eastern trailhead of the Liberty Lake Stateline Trail connects with the Spokane River Centennial Trail
