I've ridden all or parts of this trail for several years. Great riding. Can be a bit crowded thru the Riverfront Park area, and again around Mirabeau. you can ride this trail well into Idaho (Coeur D'alene) on the Idaho Centennial Extension, which is another 24 miles. Great stops and food along the way. Krispy Kreme by valley mall is always a great fuel stop, especially with kids. Post Falls has some great dining as well for Food/water stops.
Does not show mileages or elevation. How can you plan if you don't know how far you are going??
As some have mentioned, this trail does go along 90 quite a bit, but so does Trail of Coeur D'Alene. The pavement on this trail is awesome, and you get a few nice hills thrown in if you want some! (I did - some rail/trails are a bit too flat!) The signage is mostly good - a few places where you have to really look around to figure out where you need to go, but if you do, you can figure it out. You get some nice long riding, and a few places with frequent stops for street crossings. Despite being by the highway, I loved it and didn't notice the traffic noise at all - was just happy to be riding such a great surface. I went to the Washington border and turned around, but have been told you can go a lot farther and really enjoy it!!
nice trail, lovely trees along most of the ride. a few short steep spots but overall pretty easy terrain. pavement was in great shape
My husband and are are in our late 50's and found the trail to be super easy! Total elevation gain from downtown Couer d'Alene to Tony's Restaurant was 36 feet. East of Tony's there is a very steep hill that is for advanced riders or folk in excellent shape. Enjoy your bike ride!!
You don't have to be stuck in a rut to get out! I challenge you to seize an hour from your month and grab a walk-bike-run on the trail! This app also shows important key features such as water fountains, parking and potties. Just do it...
We are seniors; took a short ride between Mile 296 and 291. Trail access could have been better marked for first-timers looking for parking/trailhead, but once on the trail we were very happy. Easy surface to ride, lots of nice shade along the river. Other folks using the trail were friendly. Riders, be sure to sing out when approaching other trail users from behind. Some of us are unable to hear you coming without a good loud warning. Would definitely ride again!
My wife and I rode the trail last week. We won't hurry back. We started at Sagle and had difficulty finding the trailhead. Once we found it we discovered there was no parking allowed. We had to park across the highway and run across 4 lanes of traffic; a bad start. The trail itself was in rough shape with many bumps and fissures in the asphalt. The ride across the bridge was beautiful. It was the only redeeming part of the trip. We won't hurry back.
Sorry to hear the disappointments on other reviews but just had to get my thoughts in. we have just had the best twenty mile ride Over ever experienced. The trail, weather and scenery is better than we expected and the few climbs really made it interesting. Perhaps not what I expected from the rail trail description with a couple of pushes but really present and interesting. Also, the ladies at The Tin Pot Cafe at Nine Mile Dam are worth trip on their own. Arrived as guests and left as friends is exactly right ladies. Plain fantastic, thank you and we'll be back.
Most of this trail is really beautiful through Coeur d'Alene, along the river and lake. Part of it can be loud towards the state line with traffic but overall it is a very nice trail.
This trail was very enjoyable to skate - wide, smooth, mostly flat. Nice scenery through some wooded areas as well as farmland with hay bales. There is one section that goes next to some fences with signs that warn of gun shots, and I did hear a loud gunshot as I went by that made me jump.
The Riverside section of this trail sounded great on paper; a curving off-road trail leaving Spokane, traversing in and out of the woods and ending at a state park. We found a parking lot across the bridge from the beginning of the off-road trail but it only had one car in it with a recently shattered windshield (the glass was still on the pavement).
We headed further west to another trailhead and found that it cost $10 for a state parks entrance fee to park there, plus a sign warned of frequent thefts from cars parked there.
Plan B: we went to the east end intending to ride along the river. That section didn't look too scenic as we drove through town, and we arrived on the state line to find that the parking lot was bisected by a chain-link fence, and at this lot even the trail sign had been stolen!
At least we had time to replace my wife's saddle at a terrific shop in Post Falls, ID next to a purveyor of locally produced honey. It was a sweet ending to a sour experience.
