Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

love it

October, 2020 by lcr1956

We parked in Harrison and rode to Plummer. Beautiful ride. Yes, the last 5 miles into Plummer have an incline but not bad. Well worth it. Rode back to Harrison for lunch. 30 miles.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Smoky Air cut the trip short

September, 2020 by a8jxeetqd6

Amazing ride, but I advise making this trip in the spring. We waited till September to avoid the heat, but ended up in "dangerous" air quality on account of the forest fires. Loved the paved trail. We rode from Plummer to Harrison the first day, 16 miles. Mostly downhill and lovely tree-lined hills, then the cool bridge and... pelicans! They did a flyover, welcoming us to the lake. The next day we rode to Kellogg. Enjoyed the views the first two thirds, not so much near Smelterville. Anime illness annexed the trip, salt. Still, a great, fun ride.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

The trail deserves its ratings!

September, 2020 by m.ann.nelson

Two friends and I biked from Chatcolet to a few miles beyond Harrison, a round trip of 24 miles. Saw moose, birds, and little critters, ate our picnic on the trail, and enjoyed ice cream in Harrison on the way back. Gorgeous day, lovely scenery, well-maintained trail with plenty of facilities and easy to ride, and lots of friendly people!! Do yourselves a favor and ride the Trail of the CdA!

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Started at Chatcolet and did a r/t of about 25 miles. Amazing views, also saw white pelicans and a couple moose munching in the weeds. No issues with the paved trail. Definitely doing this trail again.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Milwaukee Road Rail-Trail (Pearson to Calder)

Bitterroot 300K Day 1 (continued)

July, 2020 by frankterraferma

The Milwaukee picks up in Pearson immediately at the end of the Hiawatha. A rider going onto Avery (10 miles south) has two immediate choices, stay on the Milwaukee RR grade with more tunnels and trestles or switch the Scenic Alternate path. Both go downgrade and straddle either side of the St. Joe River. I don't get the sense many Hiawatha cyclists head onto Avery.

About 5 miles down, the two paths cross and one can switch up which is what I did. Leaving Pearson, I stayed on the RR grade which functions as a dirt road. It's more exposed and a bit rocky. After 5 miles or so, just past the trestle, they cross. Here, I switched over to the alternate which has some uphill and downhill but has shady areas. The RR grade has no climbs, all downgrade. The alternate in particular felt more remote. In terms of trail branding/signage, there was none.

In Avery, there are several lodging options. I stayed at Avery Store & Hotel. Super comfy bed and ate at the new TFP Pizza joint. Quite tasty! Make sure to check out the Rail Car and Depot Museum.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

John Wayne Trail

July, 2020 by sbhalo

Isn't this the "John Wayne" Trail? Awesome and maintained trail... sometimes a bit "rocky" verses "gravelly." And the rocks can be pretty sharp, got a flat tire on my last ride on the trail.

Linked these two trails together. Rode by myself on my Bike Friday Llama.
Stayed in motels 2 nights. Great ride except for getting buzzed by some punk on a quad.
