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

The trail is a lovely paved path on an old railway bed. The scenery along the whole route is varied and full of water birds, beautiful vistas and interesting places to stop. We enjoyed it very much. The hospitality of people we met along the way was exceptional. A great ride.

We walked 30 kilometers of the trail and had a lovely time. The wild flowers were in bloom so I was constantly snapping pictures. I loved that rest stops were strategically placed along the trail too!

This great trail was once a rail travelling over 72 miles from Plummer, Idaho to Mullan, Idaho. Very well kept asphalt trail with trail heads along the way plus picnic benches and restrooms. It follows the Coeur d'Alene river near Cataldo to the Coeur d'Alene lake by Harrison and along and across the lake. Beautiful views all the way. The... More

My wife and I rode 65 miles on our tandem from Plummer to Wallace the first day and spent the night in Wallace at a motel (and frequented the two local brew pubs) and then rode back to Plummer the following day. The section of trail that was most scenic and enjoyable for us from Plummer to Enaville. From Enaville... More

What a great way to use the old railbeds and tie them into this wonderful trail, the scenery is beyond description and I look forward to using it again and again. Follows lakes, rivers, the wildlife viewing a the best I have seen in a very long time.

We enjoyed a couple of days staying in campgrounds and riding our bikes on the beautiful trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. We spent one night camping in Pinehurst, Idaho at the By The Way Campground. It was $25 per night and comfortable for full RV hookups. The hot showers are really nice after a day of riding bikes. The next... More

A bike trail like no other. You wouldn't come here for the variety of food. Pack a picnic and take the Harrison to Plummer rail trail. Deer and coyote on the trail. You may see wild turkey. No need to be afraid. Enjoy the scenery everywhere you look. About 13 miles on way..7 of that uphill. Then turn around and... More
