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

This 70 mile paved path from Plummer (south of Coeur d'Alene) is a joy. The trail starts at the southern end of the lake and works its way to the east side of the lake before heading east. You get great views of the lake then you follow the Coeur d'Alene River as it makes its way through the lovely... More

This trail has some of the best scenery and really cool thing to see. It's Very easy to ride with restrooms along the trail. The wildlife is amazing, don't forget to take a camera along. We saw 3 Moose, several Elk and lots of deer. There are parts of the trail that pass through areas where by bike or on... More

We biked from Harrison to Kellogg. Great scenery, nice flat smooth well maintained trail away from the road for most of the trip. Adequate facilities along the way...but take advantage of them when you can. Watch out for hornet nests in the benches & tables. This is by far one of the best rail trails we've biked on.....will be planning... More

The trail goes 75 miles across the the top of Idaho from Mullan to Plummer. The trail is on the old Union Pacific railroad bed so the trail is never more a 2% grade. Once past Kellogg, the trail follows the river and is very scenic. It is paved all the way with bench and bathrooms. There are spots to... More

Repeat adventure, just wish the remaining trail from Pearson at S. end of the Hiawatha to Avery to St. Marie's was as finished. The trail would be an international biking destination!

The trail is asphalt paved and rests on the old Northern Pacific rail bed which was the commercial hauling and passenger lifeline for the Silver Valley and the... More

we camped at chacolet campground which had a steep trail straight from camp down to the path and wasn't sure which way to go on the campground. We started out to the right (the way to plummer) and asked a local which way to go. He said go right to Plummer and go uphill, or go left towards Harrison and... More
