North Idaho Centennial Trail

North Idaho Centennial trail west from North Idaho College

August, 2017 by acannefax

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!!

North Idaho Centennial Trail

I wish we had trails like this at home

August, 2017 by scottmorris.at

nice trail, lovely trees along most of the ride. a few short steep spots but overall pretty easy terrain. pavement was in great shape

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Ride During Western Heat Wave

August, 2017 by wyattrj

Road most of the trail starting in Plummer and going to Wallace. Road 2 days – first to Rose/Bull Lake and then day 2 to Wallace. Very nice trail especially the western sections, once you get past the Pinehurst area, you are out in the open more, near I-90, and the wind can be bad. Be sure you have water since there are very few places to get water. The trail goes along the lake by Harrison where the town is mostly up on the hills above the trail, so you might have to walk up the hill if the little marina store isn’t open. Lots of “facilities” along the way. If you happen to come upon a moose give them their space. They can be dangerous. Would recommend starting early when it is going to be hot, particularly an issue on the eastern parts.

North Idaho Centennial Trail

Photogenic Lake Couer d'Alene

July, 2017 by missbagpiper76

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!!

NorPac Trail

Rough and Remote

July, 2017 by danafellows

My wife and I did the Bitterroot 300 K loop, July 2017 and this included the NorPac. We had to stop and ask some construction workers how to find the beginning of the trail since there was only one sign that we saw and that was in Mullan. There needs to be some better signage for the first four or five miles. The first 15 miles is uphill, so much so that we took many walking breaks up the various inclines. The surface is anything from dirt, sand, gravel, to large 3+ diameter inch rocks. The last 10 miles is down hill and we did not have to peddle, in fact I rode my breaks on the way down.

Paradise Path

Great trail connecting Latah Trail and Bill Chipman Trail

June, 2017 by moscowsharon

While short, this is a fantastic trail that I run and bike on all the time. I've rollerbladed on it too, although there are enough tree roots and other challenges that made rollerblading on it a one-time event.

Route of the Hiawatha

Fun ride, bring a picnic for after.

June, 2017 by lazybiker

Rode this trail June 4, 2017, from the top to the bottom and back to the top, 29.8 miles round trip. Definitely need a bright light in the longer tunnels, twice I had deer standing in the tunnel and scurrying out ahead of me as I exited. The tunnels have significant cold water dripping from the roof onto your back and creating numerous puddles (your bike will get very dirty). Fun ride, friendly staff, beautiful environment. Riding my own bike, instead of a rental, made it faster and more fun. Bring a picnic so you can hang out after and enjoy the sunshine after the cold, dark tunnels.

Snake River Canyon Rim Trail

Goods Views

May, 2017 by pweathers1

Twin Falls gas taken steps to acquire easements for the canyon rim trails which is cool. There is disconnect that goes through neighborhood s and its not marked near the shopping district. Then the trail ends at Eastland Road where there are no bike lanes to Falls Ave to Champion Rd which will then connect you to the East segment.

Boise River Greenbelt

Most of the trail closed due to flooding

April, 2017 by fgladics

Record heavy snows and the resulting above average run off have closed most of the trail. As of April Only eastern most 9 miles remain open. Federal water managers predict above flood stage releases into June. Check City of Boise website for closure maps. A key bridge between Boise and Garden City has been removed to save it from falling in the river and park managers say it will have to be relocated. Thus when flooding subsides you will not be able to ride the trail from one end to the other non stop. When it dries out it is still a great trail you will have to ride part and find the detour around the missing bridge to continue on.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

best skate path

January, 2017 by gary krupey

Yes I have skated this 73 mile path. It is one of the smoothest paths in USA. I skated West and paid one of the locals ($50)to come and pick us up at the end of the trail. Gary Krupey 636-343-4898

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

Tamarack to Weiser

October, 2016 by frankterraferma

Three of us rode almost the full length of the trail on October 8 & 9. Weather was perfect. We rode downgrade from north to south and overnighted at Mundo Hot Springs, strategically located at the midway point. Sophie the owner is awesome and prepares delicious meals. And, nothing better than a hot soak after a 40 mile ride.

We saw very few others and dont think any were doing the full length. The trail is a mix of everything from a few paved sections to some areas that were a little muddy. Rocky seems most prevelent. Id say to do the full length, fat tires and minimum of weekend warrior level fitness are required.

Most upper section is evergreen type and then gets into open high desert type terrain for say the lower 80% of the trail. Summer riding in the exposed sun would seem pretty rough to me. The ten or so miles from the Presley Trailhead to Weiser were probably the least scenic, mostly farm fileds.

Saw a good bit of wildlife including a bear at a safe distance and some mountain sheep foraging on the side of a steep hill. While we were prepared for goatheads, none of us had a flat tire (thankfully).

This is a neat trail (underutilized) that folks should enjoy.

Boise River Greenbelt

Excellent trail

October, 2016 by daireemt

Rode this trail from Eagle all the way to Lucky Peak reservoir over 2 days in late September. A great experience overall. Suggestions would be for a bit better markings along the route, as the downtown areas can be a bit confusing and congested.
The only negative is a local weed called goatheads....nasty little things that resemble organic thumbtacks....flattened 3 of 4 tires late one afternoon. Advise you carry a tire pump!!
