My friends and I did the entire trail (73 miles) in one day and loved it! Beautiful scenery and amazing trail conditions. I'd do this again anyway. We are seasoned road bikers and loved how wonderfully maintained the trail was. I'd start in Mullan and head to Harrison (more of a downhill start). We loved ending in Harrison as there... More

Biked 28 miles RT on this trail in mid September from Medimont to Harrison and then South for about 3 more miles. There are a few restrooms en route and different places to begin your trip. The trail is paved, free and has a variety of scenery. While it's not spectacular, it is very pleasant scenery, passing farms, ponds, rivers... More

Lovely ride from Plummer to Mullen Idaho along Lake Coeur d'Alane and up the Silver Valley. Well maintained paved trail hugs the lake and then rambles along the Coelur d'Alane river for a total of 72 miles of wonderful scenery. Wildlife abounds--on our trip we saw bald eagles, herons, deer and moose. Wallace and Kellogg are interesting old mining towns.... More

Rode approx. 20.5 miles out from the Plummer Trailhead and back, total of approx. 40. Beautiful day and beautiful trail. I want to ride the entire thing in mid Sept. but I'm concerned about not having enough water. Should be a great time.

Lovely trip with smooth paved cycle trail. Enough traffic that you never felt isolated but you experienced peace and nature. Very few places to purchase food and water. We had planned on cooking in campsites on route but ended up in the few restaurants and pubs. Hopefully this exceptional trail will bring more services trail side.

A beautiful 72 mile paved rail trail. This is in fact a Super Fund site to remedy toxic pollution by paving over it. Toxic silver mining tailings containing heavy metals were used as RR ballast on this former UP branch line. Smelting chemical were also spilled from trains. The rail corridor was paved over to seal in the toxic materials.... More

This trip we did the section between the Snake Pit and Harrison and back (~62 miles). Had lunch and a snack at both ends of the trip. Lots of lakes and river along the trip. If you need a bathroom it will be there shortly, just no running water. Wildlife is variable but can range from just birds to birds,... More

The family and I camped along the trail and spent our days spinning and swimming. The pavement is great - the trail is underutilized and except for the occasional road rider that takes themselves too seriously the ride had a friendly / festive feel. A great place to lose a long weekend for a family with young riders.

We come every summer for a week to ride this trail. Moose in the morning, swimming in the river at noon, and mosquitoes at dusk. If you want incredible scenery, friendly people, and a smooth, paved trail, this is one to not miss. We like the section from the Pine Creek (Pinehurst) trailhead to Cataldo. More shade, swimming holes, and... More

No need to worry about cars on this wilderness paved bike trail. The only thing we had to stop to avoid was a moose! We even rode past pelicans! The first day we rode from Harrison along the lake, then across the lake on the FUN "roller coaster" bridge up the forested grade to Plummer and back. The distance is... More
