My husband and I went on a biking vacation and rode most of this trail. Absolutely fantastic! Frequent restrooms along the route was a pleasant surprise. The views were amazing and the trail was clean of trash and homeless camps. Loved every minute of it. Stayed in an airBnb right on the trail which was so convenient. A+ rating for the trail. Fully paved and an easy ride.
Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.
We rented bikes to ride(lrented ugh Less than ideal) but also got a permit for the ride and we paid for the shuttle. Best bike experience ever. Although the staf was friendly , things were not Ideal the bikes were in poor condition . we ended up driving our own truck with their rented bike to the trailhead. Right away you need a head lamp and flashlight to enter the first longest dark tunnel...which was amazing. Then we passed over the absolute highest tresseel bridges I ever been on which was spectacular. the weather was perfect. I would love to go again. I would prefer to bring my own bike---knowing my bike breaks and seat was comfortable for me..This ride we took our time and made numerous stops to drink and take pics so it was all day for us.
Wife and I went on our first exclusive trip just to complete the entire trail both ways. We completed over three days and enjoyed every minute of it. Scenery is beautiful. Loved riding easy grade paved trail along rivers, lake, and hills. Would highly recommend this ride.
With what they charge to ride this loose gravel trail, and the huge number of novice cyclists, families with infants in bike trailers and couch potatoes who need an electric bike with huge tires and an extra-wide seat to ride downhill, this thing should be paved. It's more of an amusement park attraction than a bike trail, so give the public what they look for in a Disneyland-like experience! They should re-invest their obvious huge profits in paving and more frequent shuttle services. If it wasn't loose gravel, experienced cyclists would ride it in both directions and not end up at the bottom, in lines 200 yards long, in the midday sun, with no shade, with all the young families with crying children, waiting for the bus that takes them back to the parking at the top. Or at least, stop selling tickets to ride down, when the line at the bottom is out of control. And despite what the promotional material says, do not attempt the descent on a road bike. It is by no means, "packed gravel." It is very loose and very dangerous on tall, skinny, high PSI tires. What could have been a glorious experience in breathtaking surroundings was ruined by the mess this "organization" has created.
I have done this trail so many times through the years. Loved the tunnels and the trestles! The views are spectacular! Yes the trail is gravel. No problems with it. I saw some negative comments. I don’t understand it. Go back to the city then.
On Google Maps aerial photo, it appears there is a trail leading from a point on the NorPac Trail about 1/4 mile west of the west portal of Borax Tunnel, west and down to reconnect with NorPac trail on the other side of the tunnel at the lower elevation nearer I-90. Does anyone know if this a usable detour around the tunnel?
This is the second time on the Hiawatha for my wife and I the trail is still a favorite it is scenic and well maintained and well run we will return
Wow…really enjoyed this trail. Well worth taking the time to get there and ride. The trail description on TrailLink is very accurate. The trail surface was great, smooth and wide. Lots of folks take advantage of the trail and many, mostly, bikers were encountered. Plenty of information panels along the route with tables, benches and restrooms. This is a well maintained trail. Abundance of trail signage, mileage, etc. Mile 0 is about a ½ mile down the trail from the Plummer trailhead resulting in the ending point mileage of 71.4 at Mullan. Between mile 8 and 54 the trail is generally level, the other portions are railroad grade, so nothing overly taxing. Thinking this might be my new favorite trail.
Rode this about 18 years ago and considered it my favorite ride. Did it again recently and that ride 18 years ago was a good one but no longer consider this trail my favorite. Yes, it has lots of tunnels and trestles to travel through but better like to ride with lots of other folks. Unless you go very first thing in the morning and beat the crowds. I remember the trail surface being gravel but somewhat smooth, not now. Just seemed rougher this time. The price to ride is hefty, $18 during the week and $36 on the weekends. Headlight is a must to get through the tunnel (8,771 ft) on the east end of the trail. Plus a few other tunnels need lights, nearly ran into a deer (doe) in one of the tunnels, on the return trip another deer (buck) was in the same tunnel, go figure. Stopped at the only restroom I saw along the trail, it hadn’t been serviced in a while, one partially used roll of TP was available (would expect better considering the cost to ride this trail). Done this trail twice and no need to return.
A nice ride. The hub is a good place to start.
We were looking forward to this trail. We reserved tickets online and checking in was smooth. The first tunnel was a different experience. I was glad I brought a jacket and enjoyed biking through once I got used to biking with a light. The trail started out slightly rough but fine and the scenery was breathtaking. Eventually the trail got worse with lots large gravel and a washboard surface. We rode our hybrids and the constant vibration seemed hard on our bikes and bodies! I wish they would improve this trail surface! We were going to ride back up but just took the shuttle because we were so tired of all the rocks.
