We started in Cataldo. There is a small parking lot right off the freeway. There was a clean port-a-potty in the parking lot. This is at mile post 42 on the trail. We rode east to Mullan. The trail was in good shape. There aren't a lot of bathrooms nor water fountains along the way. From Wallace the trail seemed... More

My wife and I rode from the Blackrock trailhead to a little ways past Harrisville (40 miles out and back). This was a great ride with smooth pavement and very level. We saw a small snake, a fox, two bull moose,and beautiful water lillies. We wish we had more time to ride more of this trail. We only had a... More

This paved trail is built on an old railroad bed so it never gets very steep. There is no drinking water available unless you are in a town, but restrooms are located at various locations, and benches and picnic tables are also provided sporadically. We like to get on the trail at Harrison, Idaho, and go up the Coeur d'alene... More

This beautiful trail, ranked among the top rail-trail bikeways, is typical of that conversion (what used to carry trains now carries bike riders.) Lots of slight, yet long, uphill grades, the first 15 miles of which travel through Reservation land of the Coeur D'Alenes. Beautiful scenery. Loved the birds. Plenty of parking at the trailhead just north of Plummer, Idaho,... More

We had a great weekend biking the Trail. Lou McCarty shuttled us to Mullan, then we biked back to Harrison, and stayed at his Lakeside Lodge. Fantastic breakfast, excellent service, and beautiful surroundings. We finished the trail from Harrison to Plummer the next day, and count the 4 moose as an extra bonus feature......

Wonderful paved path off of the main roads. It weaves along lakes, wetlands, rivers & farms. Routinely see moose in the wetlands. Plenty of trailheads, bathrooms, tables, benches & signs. Flat except for the 7 miles at each end. Not too crowded.

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.
