Wood River Trail

5 Star Trail

August, 2020 by dashiver

Slight incline all the way to Sun Valley which makes it easier coming back. Once in Sun Valley the touring through the town was great. Being from Minnesota the scenery is a nice change from lakes....That’s debatable but none the less fantastic ride!

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Started at Chatcolet and did a r/t of about 25 miles. Amazing views, also saw white pelicans and a couple moose munching in the weeds. No issues with the paved trail. Definitely doing this trail again.

Ashton-Tetonia Trail

oh my heck!!

July, 2020 by jumpinpiggie

Only did 8 miles of this starting in Ashton, but it was phenomenal!! You’re right smack dab in the middle of the rolling hills. Went over an amazing bridge!! The gravel is nicely packed. I rode a fat bike, but we also took kids trailers with suspension and that did great! Someone else rode a cross country bike and did great. So amazing!!

North Idaho Centennial Trail

Bliss

July, 2020 by zagnuts26

To be outside in fresh air! Ride through a few neighborhoods and get the flavor of the area. Yes along freeway separate from the cars and with some short steep inclines. Adventure and getting away from the staid routines. Give me it every time. Can I go again,pretty please. Ah freedom.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Snake River Canyon Rim Trail

very nice ride to Shoshone Falls! trail map needs an update.

July, 2020 by ardenmiller

More trail is completed than what appears in the app. We went from the trails endpoint all the way to Shoshone Falls, going off track on roads once because of map inaccuracy. Return trip never used roads. Splendid views of Snake River and the falls and other rapids. Not a super long ride, but the area near the falls presents challenging hills.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Not a destination trail ,But..

July, 2020 by resifenceinc

If you're in Idaho Falls it's a must ride as a city trail it's tops. Paved about 6 miles the water falls are beautiful. I had no problem following it across the road. In the summer it is a city full of tourist so watch yourself when crossing roads...

Wood River Trail

July, 2020 by resifenceinc

Milwaukee Road Rail-Trail (Pearson to Calder)

Bitterroot 300K Day 1 (continued)

July, 2020 by frankterraferma

The Milwaukee picks up in Pearson immediately at the end of the Hiawatha. A rider going onto Avery (10 miles south) has two immediate choices, stay on the Milwaukee RR grade with more tunnels and trestles or switch the Scenic Alternate path. Both go downgrade and straddle either side of the St. Joe River. I don't get the sense many Hiawatha cyclists head onto Avery.

About 5 miles down, the two paths cross and one can switch up which is what I did. Leaving Pearson, I stayed on the RR grade which functions as a dirt road. It's more exposed and a bit rocky. After 5 miles or so, just past the trestle, they cross. Here, I switched over to the alternate which has some uphill and downhill but has shady areas. The RR grade has no climbs, all downgrade. The alternate in particular felt more remote. In terms of trail branding/signage, there was none.

In Avery, there are several lodging options. I stayed at Avery Store & Hotel. Super comfy bed and ate at the new TFP Pizza joint. Quite tasty! Make sure to check out the Rail Car and Depot Museum.
