New end that is north under construction


As we talk … the Fish Lake Trail gets a new path head/ path end during the north end by means of the I-90 freeway. The design is read by us review application also it sounded good. Some excerpts:

„New site elements should include the construction of a paved parking area with curb for 24 cars including two ADA stalls. Tangible sidewalks and a plaza area will undoubtedly be provided along side a flush restroom facility, an information kiosk with interpretive signage, and access that is paved the Fish Lake Trail. A trash receptacle, work work bench, and bicycle rack is likewise supplied.“

Flushies should suggest a water fountain for the containers or at the least a sink. Appears like an addition that is nice a great improvement out of this summer time once I wandered about searching for the north end for the path. Finally found the trail crossing S. Marshall Rd. with brand brand new blacktop.

“Stevemtbr” from BikeForums, an area driver, taken care of immediately my inquiries in regards to the Fish Lake by firmly taking digital camera and having some shots of this construction that is new. They are published for the viewing pleasure.

Stevemtbr – I decided to take a ride out to the trail and check on the progress“Since I have nothing but time on my hands. They are nevertheless taking care of the parking area and bridges. The pavement that is new simply during the connection that covers Thorpe Rd and it is paved until the connection at Marshall Rd, about 3 kilometers well worth. No paving had been going on today nevertheless the gear continues to be there while the staying gavel parts seem like here willing to get paved.

The path mind in Marshall by the end of this paved part off of S. Scribner has brand brand new path shut signs going to Fish Lake. Seriously within the past we’ve simply ignored them and ridden on through without any problems. We connected a lot of photos for your veiwing pleasure.

Trailhead? Marshall? Scribner Rd.? Have to give that certain a look. You get on up at I-90, head south, hopefully on blacktop starting at Thorpe Rd. overpass, take it south thru Marshall to Scribner Rd., where you exit the trail and head down the S. Cheney/Spokane Rd. to the Fish Lake Trailhead as I understand the ride. There you’ll jump regarding the Columbia Plateau Trail, drive the blacktop to Cheney TH and also the gravel all of the real means right down to Martin Rd. Roughly, about 32 kilometers a proven way. The roadies to their quick bikes will enjoy it to Cheney. The hill bikes are capable of the somewhat gravels that are soft Cheney.

Once the Fish Lake Trail is performed, it’s going to link Cheney to Spokane, with eventual hopes of a simple link with Spokane’s Centennial Trail and thence to your North Idaho Centennial Trail. Imagine riding from Cheney to Coeur d’Alene.

You are able to drive further. Catch the bottom of the portion that is northern of Columbia Plateau Trail at Martin Rd. TH away from Sprague, drive it north to Fish Lake Trail Head – and someday onward. When completed it will be described as a wonderful trip. Have a look at my pix of this CPT on TraiLink.

At this time the Fish Lake is certainly much an ongoing work in Progress and under construction. Paving had been occurring come early july. There isn’t any path mind at the end that is north. In reality, there is certainly some debate over where better to access the north end. a suggestion that is local 13th x Government Way x Linedke Court. There was a credit card applicatoin for financing to place a good path mind with 24 parking stalls, flush toilets, etc., a little further north at vicinity 47.647261В° x -117.452892В°, because of the on-ramp north for the freeway.

There is certainly a trail that is nice at the south end – Fish Lake TH, terminus regarding the Columbia Plateau Trail, but no Fish Lake Trail will come in here, yet. To take action means crossing A rr that is active marked “No Trespassing”. Stage III might here have an overpass. Meanwhile, do a little bit of road cycling.

It is possible to locate the path on Bing Earth. Enter: 47.617027В° -117.442830В° (cut/paste) and it’ll put you in the path where it crosses S. Marshall Rd. This can be a gravel road and another associated with few access points to your trail. Have a look at my pix. New blacktop extended in both instructions from right right here. What lengths north. We resisted the temptation that is sore drive the van up it to see. I became too sluggish to have out the bike, unfold it, equip it and north that is pedal. An xootr is needed by me for quick appearance.

On 9/20/09 it stopped in short supply of the new overpass at N47.60460 W117.44218, however the grading proceeded south. The Spokane Spokesman-Review includes a tale about stimulus cash getting used to pave 4.4 kilometers of this trail.

Your final access point before Marshall may be the overpass that is new S. Marshall Rd. at N47.60460 W117.44218. After that the path operates between an energetic line to the western and homes to your eastern. Climbing yard fences to achieve the trail isn’t suggested.

There clearly was blacktop operating between your rail songs during the bottleneck in Marshall where wide range of lines crowd together. What lengths north and south does it get? The locals ask which you leave the path at Sprague Rd. and never go further south:

„We ask at this time that path users not travel the portion of the Fish Lake Trail from Scribner path to Fish Lake, or even the part throughout the Interstate north regarding the Lindeke Trailhead. You will find significant obligation problems when it comes to populous town on each of the areas which could derail our efforts to obtain the path done. Your assistance is valued.“

Make the road down seriously to Fish Lake Trailhead. You will find large arms for riding. It is possible to simply take a digital trip of this path at:

I would park at S. Scribner Rd. in Marshall and ride the trail north to see how far the blacktop extends if I were doing the Fish Lake today. It could get all of the method to the S. Marshall Rd. Beyond and xing. The next entry way will be during the S. Marshall Rd Xing for the next group of probes to north and south, as required.

Once I keep coming back in the summertime of 2010, you will see a many more blacktop that is fine. The path along Marshall Rd. is up at the top of the canyonside with good sugarbook sign in views associated with the valley below. I will be looking towards riding it. Someday: “Martin Rd. to Spokane or Bust!”
