The Dover-Sandpoint Community Trail connects the communities of Dover and Sandpoint along a 3.3-mile, paved, flat rail trail, providing outdoor access year-round.
Paralleling U.S. Hwy 2, the trail extends approximately three-quarters of a mile from Dover, where it connects with the Sandpoint trail at Chuck’s Slough and Creed’s Crossing, a revamped railroad trestle bridge passing over the slough. Continue to the trail’s terminus at Larch and Boyer and connect with multiple routes around the area, or access other Sandpoint sites and routes from the trail.
The town of Dover and the Dover Bay Resort located at the west end of the trail offer biking and walking paths along the Pend d’Oreille River and protected wetlands. While there, take a swim at Dover City Beach and access local amenities to include public restrooms, a children’s playground, marina, small market and an outstanding restaurant with a spectacular view.
In Dover, head towards Dover Joe’s coffee hut to begin your journey on the Dover-Sandpoint Community Trail.
