Beginning 8/27/2021, the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes will reopen. We will also reopen about 50% of the multiple use trails on the north side of the park. Shoeffler Butte, Lakeshore Loop, Indian Cliffs, the Mullan Road, and the CCC trail will all be opened. The Appaloosa, Plummer Creek Fire Trail, and Whitetail Loop are all remaining closed; as is the North Side Equestrian Trailhead. We are posting warning signs on both sides of the fire area on the TOC, signs about trail closures at all trailheads, and blocking off and signing the trail intersections to the closed areas. Any questions from the public we can help answer here at the park. Thanks!
Please check back for updates on the fire and closures.
Please Note: Contrary to Google Maps directions, when traveling to the park from the North, please keep on Hwy 95 (do not turn left onto Conkling Road). When you arrive at Plummer, turn left (East) onto State Hwy 5 to access the park
About the Park
Created in 1908, Heyburn State Park is the oldest park in the Pacific Northwest. Towering Ponderosa pines give way to flower-filled meadows and placid waters. Visitors can enjoy the peaceful serenity of cottages, cabins and campsites and admire the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps who built many buildings within the park in the 1930s.
Comprised of about 5,744 acres of land and 2,332 acres of water, Heyburn State Park is a paddler and pedaler paradise. Miles of trails await you whether you are a hiker, cyclist or horse rider. Bring your own boat or rent a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard and enjoy three lakes — Chatcolet, Benewah and Hidden Lakes, or the shadowy St. Joe River, which meanders along the eastern boundary of the park. The Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, one of the most popular biking trails in the western United States, runs directly through the park.
