Second time was even better than the first

Loved it. Tunnels, tressels and beautiful scenery. Make sure you stop and buy your trail passes and shuttle bus tickets. Pack a lunch and enjoy.

If you like a moderate too easy bike ride this is the trail to take. You get to ride through several tunnels and over several tressels during the 16.1 mile ride. You will need a good light for your bike in order to ride thru the tunnels

Excellent bike ride thru tunnels, over trestles and over the top interpretive guide back up the road from the bus driver! Didn't see any wildlife this time, but since we have ridden this trail over 12+ years, we have seen moose, deer, coyotes, and more! The staffing in the lodge (Lookout Pass) is knowledgeable, informative and get you in and... More

Visiting the area and friends. Said it was a must do. Took family. It was abnormally hot. We had a great time. Scenery was beautiful. Stopped when we were tired and continued on. Brought snacks and water. For four it was $215.00. Not sure about that but everyone had a good time. If you have your own bike, helmet, and... More

My husband & I rented bikes (carrier & helmets included) at Lookout Pass, drove to Roland, and biked to Pearson. It is a 1.6 % downhill grade. The shuttle buses take you and bikes back up to your car. The staff is very efficient. Not a workout unless you go the other direction! The path is gravel and sometimes a... More

Three of us, all in our 60's, did this bike trail recently, and had a really fun half-day. The bike route is very scenic, all downhill, and no other vehicle traffic to deal with. We rented the bikes, which included a bike rack which the staff mounted onto our car easily, so we could drive to the beginning of the... More

Loved this! Hadn't ridden a bike in over 20 years and was able to do this trail easily, don't let the length frighten you, it's very doable. In fact it inspired me to buy a bike when I got home, now I just have to ride it! Great outdoor activity to do when in North Idaho, fun for a family... More

I was on a self supported bicycle tour. I camped on Rainy Creek Rd a mile below the East Portal of the tunnel through St. Paul Pass, and arrived in the early morning. Not a soul was present! It seems the ski area at Lookout Pass arranges all the shuttles and sells most of the tickets ($10 access fee) under... More

The Hiawatha Trail is a self guided bicycle route that takes you through area that was once a railroad route. You go over tresses, through tunnels, see wildlife and beautiful scenery.

For the second time we rented bicyles and too the Route of the Hiawatha ride. This was really fun if you like cycling. Be prepared for a long tunnel in the dark, you must have a very good light on your bike to get through here. It is cold in the tunnels as well. If you rent bikes the lights... More
