Route of the Hiawatha

the Hiawatha

September, 2022 by scotdavis3

This is the second time on the Hiawatha for my wife and I the trail is still a favorite it is scenic and well maintained and well run we will return

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

A true rail trail

August, 2022 by annmom1

We rode from north trail head to Cambridge - 44 miles. This is a true rail trail - an old railroad bed in some places dirt, some gravelish, some bumpy, some deeper gravel. North to south is downhill, but you pedal the entire way. We loved the trail, but were definitely beat at the end. Do not underestimate the effort per mile. Scenery is terrific - woods at the beginning, scenic prairie and canyons toward the end. Take lots of water and spare tubes. You pass several towns, but alot is remote without cell service, and services are slim. We used Weiser Shuttle Service - highly recommend.

Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail

Short but fun

August, 2022 by annmom1

Trail runs along the river from Julietta to Kendrick. Paved and flat. Runs by the wheat processing facility which was interesting as well. We did it twice for fun.

Although still some closed areas. We were able to progress to our destination without any issues. Path is crowded at times around college and water park.

Beautiful fun ride! Lots of people so at times slow going.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Worth a 2nd Visit

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Happened to have a little extra time when passing through the area. Rode this once again and wonderful morning ride, past many flowers, grassy areas, shady trees, cool water, etc. See that some additional trail is being added to the South West end of the trail. More improvements to this all ready great trail. Will do again when the opportunity presents.

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

New Favorite Trail

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Wow…really enjoyed this trail. Well worth taking the time to get there and ride. The trail description on TrailLink is very accurate. The trail surface was great, smooth and wide. Lots of folks take advantage of the trail and many, mostly, bikers were encountered. Plenty of information panels along the route with tables, benches and restrooms. This is a well maintained trail. Abundance of trail signage, mileage, etc. Mile 0 is about a ½ mile down the trail from the Plummer trailhead resulting in the ending point mileage of 71.4 at Mullan. Between mile 8 and 54 the trail is generally level, the other portions are railroad grade, so nothing overly taxing. Thinking this might be my new favorite trail.

Route of the Hiawatha

Disappointed

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Rode this about 18 years ago and considered it my favorite ride. Did it again recently and that ride 18 years ago was a good one but no longer consider this trail my favorite. Yes, it has lots of tunnels and trestles to travel through but better like to ride with lots of other folks. Unless you go very first thing in the morning and beat the crowds. I remember the trail surface being gravel but somewhat smooth, not now. Just seemed rougher this time. The price to ride is hefty, $18 during the week and $36 on the weekends. Headlight is a must to get through the tunnel (8,771 ft) on the east end of the trail. Plus a few other tunnels need lights, nearly ran into a deer (doe) in one of the tunnels, on the return trip another deer (buck) was in the same tunnel, go figure. Stopped at the only restroom I saw along the trail, it hadn’t been serviced in a while, one partially used roll of TP was available (would expect better considering the cost to ride this trail). Done this trail twice and no need to return.

Snake River Canyon Rim Trail

top 5

Absolutely gorgeous. We were on our way to Yellowstone this summer and stoped in twin falls to check out this bike trail. It did not disappoint. I have added it to my top 5 most beautiful trails.

Crown Point Railroad Grade Trail

great bike trail

July, 2022 by natashapliego

We had 2 kids: age 3 year old (with training wheels) and 5 year old with us. We only biked in 2 miles in and out. We took a break on a sandy beach. Felt like a hidden gem. We will be back for sure for more riding as the kids get older so we can complete the section.
