Deal in the works to link trails
May 4, 2017
By Garth Meyer
Gazette Reporter
A group of Tekoa and Plummer, Idaho, area farmers have signed an expression of interest to work out a deal to turn a six-mile stretch of former railroad bed into a link between the John Wayne Pioneer Trail and the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes. ____ At the Washington-Idaho border, the state-owned John Wayne Trail becomes private land, running for the six miles to Plummer, passing under Highway 95. The rail bed ends in Plummer, at which a one-mile ride on a town street takes a rider to the south end of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, which extends into Idaho for 69 miles to Mullan. Riders there have the option to connect with the top of the Trail of the Hiawatha East Portal.
With the proposed six-mile, partially wooded link, the entire three-state stretch could become the longest rails-to-trails conversion in America.
