The Sherwood Forest trail system near Sandpoint is well known for mountain biking, but during the winter it's a good spot for snowshoeing and hiking. To get to the forest you can follow Greta’s Segway, a short trail from the small parking area on Pine Street Hill. The trail wonders through dense trees, over a few wooden foot bridges, past some old farm equipment, and crosses a low traffic road. After 1.2 miles you will reach the trail intersection. There you will find an information sign and trail map. From here you can adventure on and explore more of the area. Keep an eye out for wildlife including birds, deer and possibly even a moose or bear.

Enjoy the peaceful beauty of winter with this trail and the others connected to it in the Syringa Trail Network. The trail system was built in 2005 by the Pend Oreille Pedalers bike club and local landowners. The trail is open to hikers and non-motorized bikers.

The public access to this private land is contingent on respectful use of the area. Please do your part to keep this place open for all!
