The Railroad Right-of-Way Trail winds through the pristine wilderness of Idaho's Targhee National Forest. The sprawling forest is a unit of the even larger Caribou-Targhee National Forest, which...
Absolutely beautiful ride!! Along the way we discovered that legislation has been passed to not allow Ebikes... what a bummer!
Rode the entire trail from Mullan to Plummer back to Rose Lake and then back to Harrison to do 100 miles. Perfect weather and the scenery was so outstanding the miles just flew by! Absolutely loved this trail ! I went early July.
I road a section of the beginning of this trail from Plummer, ID to the famous Chatcolet Bridge, and another section from Osborn, ID to Mullan, ID. This is an outstanding paved trail with beautiful scenery. The sections I road were fairly easy for riding. I will definitely be riding this trail when in the area again.
I have had this trail on my bucket list for our trip from NE Tennessee for over a year. I was disappointed in several ways, most of which are not discussed in the description of this organization be it the webpage or the app. 1). The ‘trail’ was a gravel road that shares some section with cars or buses. 2) we had ‘privilege’ of paying $12 this 14-15 mil trail. The only extra I noticed was an occasional volunteer riding uphill to check on a few things. 3) the View is very beautiful but it doesn’t really change. 4) the ride back up was only $10 but we are now at $22 pans you still have to ride the wet 1.6 mile tunnel. Our bikes and clothes were totally nasty. A warning would have been nice. I rate this a beginner trail.
We really enjoyed our mid-May ride of this beautiful trail . The trail itself is in great shape, cyclists facilities are plentiful and well maintained and the sights along the Trail are great to experience. I can't wait to tackle more of this trail next time we get to Idaho. Can't recommend this trail highly enough!
Really nice trail that sees excellent winter maintenance. Starts at State Line, courses through Post Falls and brings you out along Lake Coeur d’Alene. Pretty level trail, well signed, and the asphalt is in great shape. Lots of users but the trail is wide enough to accommodate everybody.
We traveled all the way from southern California in September of 2017 to experience this incredible trail, and we were not disappointed! It was everything we had hoped it would be!
You start off with a bang by pedaling through Taft Tunnel, 1.66 miles of pure, exhilarating, creepy darkness. From then on, it's more tunnels, unbelievably high trestles, historic monuments, breathtaking vistas, and unlimited photo and video ops. We were in awe, so we took it slow to savor the absolute beauty and majesty of the surrounding valleys and forest.
We rode this on a weekday during the last week of shuttle operation in late September. The weather was a sketchy, but we didn't have to deal with the large summer crowds I've read about.
The last couple of miles is somewhat tedious: no more downhill, an extremely washboardy trail, and no views except for dense forest on either side.
We arrived at the end just as they were loading up the shuttle bus, but alas, when it was our turn to get on the bus was full, so we had to wait for an hour for the next one. By the way: the shuttle doesn't take you all the way back to the parking lot. It drops you off not far from the Taft Tunnel, so you get to end your day pedaling through the supposedly haunted tunnel once again. Oh boy!
All things considered, it was worth driving 1,300 miles from SoCal to create memories that will last a lifetime! (Plus, we got to check off two states, Montana and Idaho, on our quest to bicycle all fifty!)
Love this trail and have ridden it for yrs but rode again summer 2018 and couldn’t believe how poorly maintained it was. Wash-board most of way. In addition, the Taft Tunnel had a few extremely slick areas and I almost crashed. Didn’t used to b that way. First time I had ever been excited to leave. Had a very long wait in the heat for the shuttle bus d/t the large masses. Hope they get their act together bc this is a treasure!
I was recently exploring trails connecting to the Hiawatha, Coeur d'Alene. I drove the section east from Mullan and had difficulty following the route. As mentioned in previous posts, it is not well signed. The turn at the fish hatchery was a guess and then signed 50 yds up that barely noticeable overgrown gravel road. I encountered this problem several times and mentioned it to the host at the Wallace Railroad Museum (which is awesome!). She said that PEOPLE STEAL THE SIGNS! That's very unfortunate. Perhaps they can engrave on posts that won't be so easy to steal?
I wasn't on it for long, but this section is very scenic, remote and worth the effort.
Lots of variety on this relatively short system of trails. I skated from Idaho State to Edson Fichter Nature Area and back. There are a few hills near campus but they aren't too steep. I really liked the varying scenery on these trails. Hills, sunflower fields, in-town section with big rock cliffs, sagebrush flatland, creekside, and then ending at a nice pond. Pavement is pretty good except along the creek on the way to Edson Fichter where it's rough for skating.
I am from Florida but ever since I first read about the Route of the Hiawatha it was on my bucket list. I traveled out to Idaho with my Dad over Labor Day weekend 2018. I wanted to share the experienc with him because his grandfather worked on the Milwaukee Railroad and the Route of the Hiawatha. The trail lived up to everything I had read and more. My Dad and I created memories for a lifetime in a beautiful part of this country. I decided to ride back up to the East Portal after we reached Pearson (my Dad took the shuttle back). The ride up was tiring for this Floridian for whom bridges are a big climb but it wasn’t all that bad. I will say when I go back (when not if, I’m already planing a return trip with my wife) I’ll probably skip the ride back up and just take the shuttle. The ride down is enjoyable and leisurely, the ride up is definitely exercise and I was paying much less attention to the beautiful scenery. Make sure you have a camera and don’t miss the Trail of the Coeur d’ Alenes, especially down near Lake Coeur d’ Alene in Harrison!
Still under development, but several beautiful loops and extensions are available for short bike day trips or walks. Signage much better now.
