Route of the Hiawatha

Beautiful Place, Horribly Mismanaged

November, 2022 by jedenner1960

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.

Route of the Hiawatha

Fabulous Trail

November, 2022 by vvvqsxnj7r

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.

NorPac Trail

Borax Tunnel detour

October, 2022 by topshelf

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

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

A true rail trail

August, 2022 by annmom1

We rode from north trail head to Cambridge - 44 miles. This is a true rail trail - an old railroad bed in some places dirt, some gravelish, some bumpy, some deeper gravel. North to south is downhill, but you pedal the entire way. We loved the trail, but were definitely beat at the end. Do not underestimate the effort per mile. Scenery is terrific - woods at the beginning, scenic prairie and canyons toward the end. Take lots of water and spare tubes. You pass several towns, but alot is remote without cell service, and services are slim. We used Weiser Shuttle Service - highly recommend.

Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail

Short but fun

August, 2022 by annmom1

Trail runs along the river from Julietta to Kendrick. Paved and flat. Runs by the wheat processing facility which was interesting as well. We did it twice for fun.

Snake River Canyon Rim Trail

Beautiful!

August, 2022 by loraleecampbell

Nice Ride with beautiful lookouts! Crowded at times around lookouts and the bridge.

Boise River Greenbelt

Beautiful Ride

August, 2022 by loraleecampbell

Although still some closed areas. We were able to progress to our destination without any issues. Path is crowded at times around college and water park.

Boise River Greenbelt

Great Ride

August, 2022 by loraleecampbell

Beautiful fun ride! Lots of people so at times slow going.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Worth a 2nd Visit

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Happened to have a little extra time when passing through the area. Rode this once again and wonderful morning ride, past many flowers, grassy areas, shady trees, cool water, etc. See that some additional trail is being added to the South West end of the trail. More improvements to this all ready great trail. Will do again when the opportunity presents.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

New Favorite Trail

August, 2022 by acewickwire

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.

Route of the Hiawatha

Disappointed

August, 2022 by acewickwire

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.
