Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

We'll be back.

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.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

E bikes not allowed

Absolutely beautiful ride!! Along the way we discovered that legislation has been passed to not allow Ebikes... what a bummer!

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Century Ride!

July, 2019 by lkgatu

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.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

Outstanding Trail

July, 2019 by judora_siknak

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.

Route of the Hiawatha

very disappointed in trail and cost

June, 2019 by paddlelady

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.
