Excellent trail in Sun Valley, Idaho. We rode about 34 miles round trip from Ketchum to Belleview on Labor Day weekend. The trail had been surfaced recently, which made it one of the nicest trails I've ridden. We started early, and it was lucky we did, because it got hot! On the way back, once you get out of Hailey, it starts to cool off, because you are riding along the river. Nice trail, very unexpected, although not sure what I was expecting from Idaho.
Super easy ride! We parked at Chatcolete campground, paid the nominal fee (support our parks!) and had a beautiful 16 mile round trip ride to Harrison. No hills except the bridge which is one reason I choose rails-to-trails. 1 bathroom with flush toilets at the campground and two pit toilets on the way to Harrison. Enjoy your ride!
My buddy whos a biker came up with the idea of doing the whole 70+mile trip from Plummer to Mullan. Not having rid a bike for 10 or so years, was a little worried about if i was going to make it or not. The first 50miles of the trail was beautiful. Saw a moose and a bunch of other wildlife. There were these chipmunks at one of the stop who greeted us with hyperactive kindness. Climbing up or packs and runing around our bikes. Had a popped tire along mile 45, but luckily there was a walmart just a fews miles down. Overall the trip was painful (due to the fact i havent rid a bike in so long,) peaceful, fun, and super rewarding once we hit that final mile marker in Mullan. I have always loved adventure and never one to back down to challenges. I dont regret taking this trip, and we are planning on next yeqr doing a two day trip from one end to the other and back.
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
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
