Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail Survey

Project connection phases

The Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail is a collaborative effort to link the cities of Sandpoint, Ponderay, and Kootenai with a wonderful public space along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. Your input is needed to craft an appropriate look and feel for the project as well as to guide its implementation. We hope you find this survey useful and thank you for your contribution to this project!
As you can see in the map below, the Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail Project includes several trail improvement project phases, which are as follows:

1. Sandpoint Connection. This phase includes wayfinding and pathway improvements from City Beach to the existing trailhead near the Sandpoint water works. 
2. Existing Trail Improvements. This phase includes improvements to the existing trail such as parking restrooms, an information kiosk at the trailhead and benches and kayak access along the trail. 
3. Ponderay Connection & Underpass. This phase includes an underpass under the railroad and another trailhead.
4. Ponder Point Connection. This phase includes a trail through steep, vegetated terrain currently owned by the Army Corps of Engineers.
5. Kootenai Connection. This phase runs on the north side of the railroad and connects Ponderay to Kootenai.

A map of the project phases is found below:
