This is an excellent ride for beginners to experts. This has fun and scenery all in one easy 15 mile all downhill ride. Bring BRIGHT lights for the train tunnels. What fun for the kids!

It was a beautiful day and a wonderful ride. Be sure to have very powerful headlamps on your bikes. We were told at a bike shop at home that 35 lumens was enough. It wasn't. We drove an extra 5 miles to skip the Taft tunnel because we couldn't see well enough. It is very disorienting to be in total... More

Myself and 2 kids (age 7 and 9) completed the full trail. 15 miles with a 2% downhill grade the whole way. Kids needed a little cheerleading towards the end, but were able to complete the whole thing. Many tunnels and elevated bridges. First tunnel is 1.7 miles and is completely dark except for the lights on your bike. Once... More

Not on Trip Advisor, because hey, we're honest folks just trying to help fellow travelers find exceptional experiences and not waste their hard-earned money on not-so-great ones...but anyway...doesn't it irritate you when an attraction over-promises and under-delivers? Well....every once in awhile the hype is real, and the hype surrounding the Route of the Hiawatha 'rail to trail' mountain bike trip... More

This was my first true bike ride and it was AWESOME! I was visiting Coeur d'Alene and went on this ride as a side trip-highly recommend. After an excellent experience with snowboarding lessons, we returned to Lookout Pass to coordinate the ride. You rent a bike for a very reasonable price (spend the few extra $ for the comfort bike)... More

This bike trail was amazing! The scenery was so beautiful and I love bridges! Perfect for families! IT is a very easy trail to ride, if you start at the top its a gradual down hill ride. Going through the tunnels was a real adventure. Very very very highly recommended.

The Hiawatha Mountain Bike Trail is, by far, the best experience we had while traveling to the west.
