82 miles of great biking. Start at the Pinehurst rest and go west for the best of scenery. Gets you away from the freeway and into area only scene by bike or hike. Have a camera for wildlife interactions.

We drove out from Portland, OR, to try this trail trail as it is ranked among the top 25 bike paths in America. We were not disappointed! Both my wife and I are in our 50's and were recovering from knee injuries, but still busted out 38 miles RT on the first day. We started at the Springston Trailhead which... More

Tented at Heyburn State Park and rode up to the Old Mission State Park and back (about 45miles one way). Really liked the long bridge that crosses the lake and the ride up along the lake. The next section following the river was very scenic and I'm glad I brought my camera. Lots of ducks, geese, several Great Blue Herons,... More

Stopped here on way to Tacoma. Great bike path, extremely flat (my wife loved it) and was not busy at all. Very scenic and in excellent condition.

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.
