Our waterfront. Our front yard.



The Pend d’Oreille Bay Trail (POBT) is a community asset that stretches from Sandpoint for ~1.5 miles along the lakeshore providing precious waterfront access for the public.

Right now, the trail ends at a gate marking private property. It is a lovely out and back trail, but it could be much more.

The City of Ponderay and Friends of the Pend d’Oreille Bay are committed to creating a permanent public waterfront that extends to Black Rock connecting the communities of Kootenai and Ponderay to Sandpoint and creating a stunning two-mile trail for everyone to enjoy.
