Get ready to ride the CHAFE!

One of the premier rides in the Northwest, the CHAFE 150 happens June 15 with ride lengths for all abilities – from a 4-mile Family Fun Ride, to 30- and 40-mile rides into the beautiful Selle Valley, as well as the gonzo 80-, 100- and 150-mile gran fondo that winds into Montana’s lush Bull River Valley and back along Lake Pend Oreille. All rides start and end (with a party!) at Sandpoint City Beach. This year, a special event on June 14 is a pre-ride dinner with elite Paralympic gold medalist Tristen Chernove, pictured here. Get info and register to ride at www.chafe150.org

Maiden Rock Trail

Maiden Creek Trail is a steep 2-mile trail that leads down Maiden Rock, a prominent geologic feature, and a Forest Service recreation site on Lake Pend Oreille. The trail to this magical spot on the lake’s western shore is fairly short, though quite steep as you get closer to the lake. It cuts through a dense forest in a deep notch between two mountains to where the waters of Maiden Creek first gurgle to the surface. It follows the creek steeply downhill to the lake. Access is 11 miles south of Sandpoint on U.S. Highway 95 via the north end of Blacktail Road. Go 1.5 miles to Butler Creek Road No. 230. Turn left and travel three miles to the trailhead.
