You don’t need a “Toy Hauler” if you live in town!

Locals drive their ATVs from their homes in Coeur d’Alene, Hayden, Athol, or any of the other towns in North Idaho, into the woods to camp, fish, hunt, picnic, swim, tube, shoot, or just explore.

In fact, one could ride into Canada or Montana and never leave the forest! Just be sure to take provisions and a map…it’s a long way!

It is one of the most beautiful forests in all the country, containing pristine lakes, rivers, and streams.

The Coeur d'Alene National Forest is one of three within the Panhandle National Forest in North Idaho (the other two are the Kaniksu and the St. Joe National Forests.)

Together, they occupy 3,224,739-acres or 5,038.66 square miles...that is roughly the size of the state of Connecticut!
