MTB Syringa + Pine Street Woods. The Kaniksu Land Trust provides the new Pine Street Woods trail system, and helps maintain oversight for the adjacent Syringa trails, with more than 20 rides ranging from easy to expert... barely two miles from downtown Sandpoint. MTB Forest Service. There are many excellent single track rides developed on Forest Service trails and maintained with the help of volunteer rider groups. Notable rides are Brush Lake, with a fine moderately easy six-mile loop; Gold Hill, 2.9 miles uphill to a nice viewpoint, and potential connection to additional trails; and Lost Lake-Mineral Point trails with various loops comprising 10 miles or more in scalable difficulty. Get connected. In Sandpoint, the Pend Oreille Pedalers and in Bonners Ferry the 9B Trails biking groups provide maps and local intel ... and hey, you can even get in on their many volunteer projects.
