This is an awesome ride from the westernmost start at Rattlesnake Ledge all the way to the Renslow Trestle east of Ellensburg.
There's a few miles around Easton where someone in their "infinite wisdom" put the gravel on the trail so heavy that it made riding difficult, but it's doable.
Then there's the sand that the Army spread claiming "habitat restoration" from the Renslow Trestle across the last 20 miles to the Columbia River totally destroys the joy. Right, pure sand... does the Army think this is the Saharan Desert? To me, it seems pretty clear the Army did that in hopes to discourage bikers from crossing that section - you'll need fat tires to have any hope to ride it, and even then it will be a battle.
Forest fires still smoldering
Soft gravel and not very scenic from either side of CleElum. Rode 12 miles each direction. Could not sightsee as it was difficult to manage.
Glad we went on a weekday. And seeing 5 moose made our day. The bridge is awesome also. One of my very favorite rides.
Rode the trail in June, 2021 as the first leg of the 300k Bitterroot Loop. Left our car at Harrison, stayed overnight at the Lakeview Lodge, and rode next day from Harrison to Wallace. Stayed at the Wallace Inn & then next day continued East to Mullan, then continued on Nor Pac & Olympian trails to Haugan. Trail surface was paved & very smooth, no problem for road bikes. Great views of Coeur D'Alene Lake & River. If it fits with your schedule, ride on a weekday, it will be less crowded.
I love this ride. Rode the whole trail over several weekends, broken up into chunks. I'd go 20 miles out – 20 miles back. You are mostly out in nature on this trail. I've seen moose, deer, lots of ducks and geese, cranes, coyote, etc.. Along the way are plaques explaining highlights and history of the area. And should you need, there are clean restrooms and benches and tables (in the shade) along the way. Be sure to treat yourself to a refreshing stop in Harrison, Enaville, Cataldo, Kellog, and Wallace. I planned my bike ride so I'd hit a cafe in one of these towns at just the right time to refresh myself with a cold beer and pulled-pork sandwich. I plan to ride this trail, or at least sections of it, once every year.
I have ridden this trail twice. Very nice,relaxing,simply fantastic but that Harrison to Plummer section is one long uphill. The ice cream store in Harrison a wonderful break spot. I wish this trail was closer to my residence. Trail of the Hiawatha is also quite nice but buy or rent a very good light which WILL make or break your ride. All in all, these places are definite bucket list rides you do not want to miss!!
wonderful trip across America
Rode the trail end to end and back again, Sept 2020. Camped in local USFS campgrounds. Had to ride each segment up and back as there was no shuttle due to C19. Great ride. All segments different. Was over 100 degrees the last day and got way overheated. Trail heads are clean and well spaced and bathrooms en route. If you can meet some other riders to share shuttling that would be ideal. Really enjoyed the ride.
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.
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.
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!
