The Strand Description

The Strand, sometimes referred to as the Cascade River Walk, meanders along the Payette River with sweeping views of the valley and surrounding mountains. It runs between North Bridge and South Bridge in Cascade, a rural city in west-central Idaho. At its midpoint, it connects to Kelly's Whitewater Park, a public nonprofit facility which offers rapids to enjoy by kayak, canoe, raft or tube.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at either end of the trail and at the midpoint at Kelly's Whitewater Park, located on State Route 55 at Mile Marker 114 on the south end of Cascade.

River Ride

While camping at Lake Cascade we were looking for someplace to ride our bikes and found this trail. It starts out on top of what appears to be a levee along the Payette River. It’s fairly level so and easy hike or ride. We went along some trailer homes then the trail opened up into the wilderness. We rode along the river then came to some rapids that were part of a white water park. Not crowded.

Nice trail. Not crowded

I ride this trail daily May through October back and forth for 10-15 miles. It isn't very crowded so I can open up and ride without many obstacles. The scenery and wildlife which I encounter daily adds to my experience!
The only thing that I don't like is a very short section of loose gravel in front of the whitewater park amphitheater. Other than that it is a great trail of asphalt and hard packed dirt.
For people staying at Arrowhead RV Park there is a trail that goes under the south bridge that connects with The Strand so you don't have to cross Highway 55. There is also a side spur about midway on the main trail that leads into town which makes it nice to avoid riding on the main highway to get into town.
I have been biking on this path for 16 years and love it!
