Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail Description

The Pend d’Oreille Bay Trail offers a wooded, unpaved route along its namesake bay between Ponderay and Sandpoint in northern Idaho. In addition to the waterfront views, you can see the Cabinet Mountains from the trail.

If you'd like to enjoy a picnic lunch before or after your ride, Sandpoint City Beach Park is located just a half mile south of the trail's southern end. The 22-acre park offers picnic tables, restrooms, a sandy beach, and other recreational amenities. For more riding, head west from the park along Bridge Street and, after passing under Sandpoint Bypass, look to your right and you'll see the entrance for Sandpoint Byway Trail, a 2.5-mile paved pathway heading north.

Parking and Trail Access

A small parking lot is available at the southern end of the trail. With a short stretch of on-road riding, you could also reach Sandpoint City Beach Park (58 Bridge St., Sandpoint), which is just a half mile farther south and offers parking and restrooms.

Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail Reviews

There's parking at the south end of the trail, and if you're on bicycles, the gravel from the lot going down to the trail should be taken slowly. But most of the trail is a very pleasant ride in the shady canopy of the trees along the water, with a wonderful view of the mountains to the east. I submitted a few pictures.
