Getting Away From It All Near Home

In its publication last week, the Inlander wrote that "it's hard to celebrate Earth Day on a patch of concrete. You need a bit of dirt underfoot and the smell of pine needles in your nose. But to get out in nature, it usually takes an extended ride in an exhaust-belching car. Which feels a little strange." The Inlander then picked out 5 spots in Spokane where you can feel as though you're away from it all. Now, driving to Spokane, would take a ride of around 35 miles -- and you still would be hard-pressed to match what you would find in North Idaho/Inlander. More here.

Question: Where do you go in the Coeur d'Alene/North Idaho area to get away from it all (beyond Tubbs Hill, which is an obvious choice)?
