The 15-mile trail-to-trail mountain bike ride is accessible to all ages, and is a great day trip for families.

Coeur d'Alene Tribe donates to schools

The Coeur d'Alene Tribe has donated $1.2 million to 52 educational programs in Idaho.

The money is going to support educational efforts ranging from reading, music, arts, science, college scholarship programs and vocational preparation.

The chairman of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, Chief Allen, says the money will allow students to focus on learning.

Most of the money was distributed in Kootenai and Benewah counties in northern Idaho, but some went as far away as Sugar City in eastern Idaho, and Wilder and Meridian in southwest Idaho.

The tribe returns 5 percent of its net gambling revenues to the financial support of education as part of its gambling compact with Idaho.
