The Prairie Trail is a spur off the popular North Idaho Centennial Trail
, a 24-mile scenic pathway from Coeur d'Alene to the Idaho/Washington border. The paved spur travels northwest for 4 miles along the former Union Pacific Railroad, connecting parks, neighborhoods, schools and businesses.
Riverstone Park at the southern end of the trail is a good place to begin your adventure; it offers picnic areas, restrooms and a beautiful lake with fountains. Several restaurants are also located nearby off Riverstone Drive. Further up the trail, you'll traverse the western border of Ramsey Park, where you can find athletic fields, playgrounds, shaded picnic areas and restrooms.
The northern end of the trail opens up to offer views of rural landscapes. The trail ends at N. Huetter Road and future plans call for extending the trail another mile east from here to Meyer Road.
Parking is available at Riverstone Park (1805 Tilford Lane) and Ramsey Park (3525 N. Ramsey Road).
