Getting Outside in a Time of Social Distance


As the days of social distancing add up in the response to COVID-19, trails are increasingly being counted on as places where people can continue to be physically active and find respite while practicing social distancing. As you plan your trail outing, be prepared that some trails may have limited services, including closed facilities like bathrooms, depots and visitor centers as well as limited or no staff. We encourage you to check the latest public health guidance from the CDC and your local/state governments, as well as the status of your trail, before heading out!

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Trail of the Couer d’ Alene and Hiawatha

March, 2020 by gvb1940

Linked these two trails together. Rode by myself on my Bike Friday Llama.
Stayed in motels 2 nights. Great ride except for getting buzzed by some punk on a quad.

A Memorable Experience

Was unlike anything I had ever experienced! Be sure to have warm clothing and snacks as the route can take awhile with a group. Highly recommended!

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

Cambridge to Council in October 2019

October, 2019 by rminch

A nice 40-mile round trip from Cambridge to Council and back in early October 2019. Trail surface was mostly dry, ranging from gravel to a bit rocky. Not great for road bikes but good for mountain bikes and very good for the fat-tire (4-inch-wide) e-bike (allowed) I used this time. Most casual mountain bikers might average about 10 MPH. This section is almost all away from the highway and other roads, so very peaceful. Trees and river views increase as you go north. I had to open about eight cattle gates but none were locked and this may vary by season. There is camping and lodging at Mundo Hot Springs and several other places along or near this segment of trail. Thanks to the many volunteers who maintain this great trail!

Route of the Hiawatha

Just the tunnels

September, 2019 by normanbowers

The main reason for taking this trail rather than the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is the tunnels. Cost is $12 plus $10 if you want to ride the bus back(uphill). Bike and light rentals are available at the entrance.

Route of the Hiawatha

A 1.6 mile tunnel of dripping darkness. Carry good lights, and then sweeping downhill for miles across trestle after trestle of beautiful country. I rode 38 mm tires on a tour bike and made the loop fine.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Rode the whole route and it was grins the whole way. I was a self contained tourist rided 38 mm tires and it was like a smooth road with no cars. FANTASTIC.

Route of the Hiawatha

2nd time on the trail

August, 2019 by shap

We rode the trail July the 16th, 2019. The first time was August 2017, and it was hot, the temp was over 90 degrees. This time the temp was in the 60's and we were the second and third person on the trail. The Taft tunnel was a bit muddy from the cool wet spring/summer. The rest of the trail was in good shape, we stopped in a tunnel for 20 min to let some rain pass. The staff did a great job. What a great trial.

NorPac Trail

Rode the loaded with 38mm tires, about 40lbs of gear. most sections smooth some a bit rough but very rideable.
