a must do trail ...
This trail starts off with a bang, with a 1.66 mile stretch through the St. Paul tunnel. Extremely dark inside, so make sure to bring good lighting. Many wonderful trestles (7), tunnels (10) and view points. We did the ride in late fall, on the last day it was open for the season. We road down and back and found the trail an easy ride to do physically, but, we found the trail very rough with lots of cobble-like stones in the roadbed. It was as if the trail had not been maintained for some time. The trail is best suited for a sturdy hybrid or mountain bike.
This is an incredible non-motorized detached trail for anyone from McCall wanting to walk, bike, run, cross country ski. It is approximately 5.7miles in one direction. For those living out on or close to the trail it is a great way to commute to town.
We like the non- motorized trail and use it daily for commuting and weekend rides. Our children have a safe way to get home from school on bikes. For last two years we have been using the trail even in the winter! The trail gets groomed and is free of charge for wither recreation.
Beautiful easy ride to Troy.
Excellent trail in Sun Valley, Idaho. We rode about 34 miles round trip from Ketchum to Belleview on Labor Day weekend. The trail had been surfaced recently, which made it one of the nicest trails I've ridden. We started early, and it was lucky we did, because it got hot! On the way back, once you get out of Hailey, it starts to cool off, because you are riding along the river. Nice trail, very unexpected, although not sure what I was expecting from Idaho.
Super easy ride! We parked at Chatcolete campground, paid the nominal fee (support our parks!) and had a beautiful 16 mile round trip ride to Harrison. No hills except the bridge which is one reason I choose rails-to-trails. 1 bathroom with flush toilets at the campground and two pit toilets on the way to Harrison. Enjoy your ride!
My buddy whos a biker came up with the idea of doing the whole 70+mile trip from Plummer to Mullan. Not having rid a bike for 10 or so years, was a little worried about if i was going to make it or not. The first 50miles of the trail was beautiful. Saw a moose and a bunch of other wildlife. There were these chipmunks at one of the stop who greeted us with hyperactive kindness. Climbing up or packs and runing around our bikes. Had a popped tire along mile 45, but luckily there was a walmart just a fews miles down. Overall the trip was painful (due to the fact i havent rid a bike in so long,) peaceful, fun, and super rewarding once we hit that final mile marker in Mullan. I have always loved adventure and never one to back down to challenges. I dont regret taking this trip, and we are planning on next yeqr doing a two day trip from one end to the other and back.
As some have mentioned, this trail does go along 90 quite a bit, but so does Trail of Coeur D'Alene. The pavement on this trail is awesome, and you get a few nice hills thrown in if you want some! (I did - some rail/trails are a bit too flat!) The signage is mostly good - a few places where you have to really look around to figure out where you need to go, but if you do, you can figure it out. You get some nice long riding, and a few places with frequent stops for street crossings. Despite being by the highway, I loved it and didn't notice the traffic noise at all - was just happy to be riding such a great surface. I went to the Washington border and turned around, but have been told you can go a lot farther and really enjoy it!!
nice trail, lovely trees along most of the ride. a few short steep spots but overall pretty easy terrain. pavement was in great shape
Road most of the trail starting in Plummer and going to Wallace. Road 2 days – first to Rose/Bull Lake and then day 2 to Wallace. Very nice trail especially the western sections, once you get past the Pinehurst area, you are out in the open more, near I-90, and the wind can be bad. Be sure you have water since there are very few places to get water. The trail goes along the lake by Harrison where the town is mostly up on the hills above the trail, so you might have to walk up the hill if the little marina store isn’t open. Lots of “facilities” along the way. If you happen to come upon a moose give them their space. They can be dangerous. Would recommend starting early when it is going to be hot, particularly an issue on the eastern parts.
My husband and are are in our late 50's and found the trail to be super easy! Total elevation gain from downtown Couer d'Alene to Tony's Restaurant was 36 feet. East of Tony's there is a very steep hill that is for advanced riders or folk in excellent shape. Enjoy your bike ride!!
