Mineral Ridge is one of the go-to trail runs near Coeur d’Alene. The trail leads to the top of a ridgeline, offering spectacur views of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The trailhead is located just off Rt. 97 about 11 miles east of Coeur d’Alene. Though it’s only about 2 miles round-trip, the moderate elevation gain makes this trail quite the workout. There are also interpretive signs scattered along the trail to keep your run interesting and educational. Most runners access the trail from the trailhead at a parking are off Route 97, near Beauty Bay. However, the Wilson and Lost Man Trails also meet the Mineral Ridge Trail from the west side.
