Spot in Idaho History
First state park in the northwest.
Created in 1908 from 7,838 acres of Coeur d’Alene Indian reservation lands.
CCC built much of the structures in the 1930s
Today,the southern part of Lake Coeur d’Alene has been returned to the tribe who gave up so much of their land for this scenic state park.

Now that you have identified which Idaho state park this is, you can grab a map and drive there.

Take the park headquarters road.
Drive to the Chiefs Landing trail head parking area.
Park and walk a short distance through the metal gate up the logging road.
On your right you will see a DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE sign on a pole. Shortly past this there will be a trail off to your left.
Take this trail until you see the guy wire on your right.
Stop here. To your left are two trees. Between these trees is a pile of blackened
debris. This is it.
I placed this before there was growth of any kind so it may later be overgrown with plants.
Happy hunting. goattrails
