Hi Mark, Jon & CM,

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is 72 miles across northern Idaho. It's a great trail, scenic, with very little traffic, and smooth (except for skattered gavel). For the past three years a bunch of skaters have met there on the Fourth of July weekend. This year we had 42 skaters from several states and Canada. It's kind of taken on a life of it's own now, but I'll continue to make arrangements along with shesk8 and others. Groups of skaters meet up in the morning, pick a starting place, and go skate as much as they want, maybe 30 - 50 miles a day. We typically don't skate it end to end, but you could. This year a woman in our group skated 62 miles on Saturday and 72 miles on Monday (and skated or bicycled the other three days, too).
