Great Northern Historical Trail

Pretty good trail

June, 2022 by georjisue

I would have given it 5 stars but on the Kila side it was BUMPY! Having broken my back a few years ago it was rough. If you start a little bit before Kila it would have been perfect! Loved stopping at Del’s at the end in Somers.

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Great little ride!

June, 2022 by georjisue

We have e-bikes (Pedego) and it was beautiful! Definitely more uphill from the start to Glacier but downhill most the way back. It was a bit tricky sticking to finding the trails off the highway but we did it. Loads of fun!

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Round trip from Hungry Horse

April, 2022 by 4cwkp97b6c

We rode early in the season which meant there was much less road noise than normal. That also meant the trail hadn’t been cleared yet. Lots of debris and pea gravel left over from melting snow. Lots of piled snow on the trail near access roads, not great for me on my road bike but my husband had no trouble with his hybrid. Beautiful wide trail with hills that get you breathing hard without killing you.

wonderful trip across America

Great Northern Historical Trail

Nice recreational ride

August, 2020 by suzie.eades

We enjoyed the ride and did it with our hybrid bikes. The 2-3 miles alongside the highway was a bit loud but still on the designated path. Then you drop down and into a very nice path to the finish - we rode back to Somers and enjoyed an adult beverage at Del’s!

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.

Great Northern Historical Trail

Hometown Ride

June, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Kalispell, MT
Trail Condition: Very nice asphalt path for the more recently constructed trail but original/older segments are in need of maintenance. Older segment (Kalispell – Kila) lots of lateral cracks with one section of washboard.
Signage: A number of overhead Great Northern Historical trail signs. Mileage markers with some completely faded out. On new segment of trail a few directional signs. A couple of historical information signs.
Comments: Rode this on two separate days, 1st was Kalispell – Somers and then Kalispell – Kila. For a good portion of the trail both parallel a busy highway and experience road noise as a result. For some reason TrailLink map does not show the original trailhead off of Meridian Road where it crosses the train tracks. This is where I started the trail. Both routes have interesting end sections. Somers has a small museum at the end and Kila is quiet. Both routes have some small hills to climb. Recommend either route when in Kalispell.

A.J. Hoyt Memorial Trail

Ridin' The GART

June, 2020 by acewickwire

This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Frenchtown, MT
Trail Condition: Very nice asphalt path with a newly completed section of excellent condition.
Signage: None.
Comments: A new portion of the trail has recently been added to the trail. From Mill Creek Rd (east end of trail) going southeast to junction with Hwy 93 near Wye is 6 miles of new trail. It parallels the frontage road, like the original section of trail. This new section of trail does encounter a couple hills. Thus not level like the original section. Overall nice trail. Lots of clover growing along the trail and smelled good the day I rode. A new other trail users were encountered.

Best Trail Ever

This is the best trail I have ever ridden!

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Uphill from Hungary Horse

September, 2019 by normanbowers

Trail is smooth and hills are not steep. Nice mountain scenery, the only downside is the traffic noise.
The trail is basically uphill going from Hungary Horse toward Glacier, so the ride back to Hungary Horse is fast and easy.

Great Northern Historical Trail

Beautiful Ride But Noisy

August, 2019 by oldertwin

I rode both south and west part way on this trail. On the westerly portion I turned back because the trail runs ride along US Hwy. 2 and the noise was bothering me. The southernly portion also runs along the busy US Hwy 93 but the noise is not so bad. I am just getting back into biking after a two year lay off and this ride was perfect.
