Trip Overview

Our Idaho Trails bike tour features some of the best and most spectacular rails-to-trails riding in the country. On this trip, you cycle along four well-known trails (the Centennial Trail, the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, the Route of the Hiawatha, and the NorPac Trail) in three states (Washington, Idaho, and Montana). This is an ideal trip for those who enjoy no- to low-traffic trail riding on flat asphalt and packed gravel surfaces.

You spend the first two days cycling the Centennial Trail, following the winding Spokane River from the rocky canyons of eastern Washington through the urban centers of Spokane (WA) and Coeur d’Alene (ID). Next, you shuttle to the Route of the Hiawatha, a rails-to-trails route that meanders through the most breathtaking stretches of old railroad lines. Following a sweeping descent on the NorPac Trail, you spend the remainder of the trip cycling the length of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes — through forested mountains and valleys full of aquamarine rivers, lakes and waterfalls. In the 175 miles of trails on this trip, you will cycle across trestles and through tunnels, including the famous Taft Tunnel, which stretches 1.6 miles beneath the Bitterroot Mountains at the state line between Idaho and Montana. These four trails traverse an area rich with railroading, mining and Native American history.

Read why the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy added two of these trails to their Hall of Fame.



Surfaces for this tour: 83% Paved and 17% Gravel.

Itinerary

From start to finish, check out the route.

DAY 1 - Arrival Day
Arrival Day, Distance: 36 miles | Terrain: Easier to Intermediate | The Roosevelt Inn
The trip begins at 8:30 a.m. when we meet on Sunday at the Hilton Garden Inn near the Spokane Airport. Bring your luggage and be ride-ready. After brief introductions, we load up and shuttle you in our van to Sontag Park. There you’ll have an orientation meeting, get fitted on your bike, and be on your way. Start pedaling along the Washington portion of the Centennial Trail in the rocky canyons west of Spokane, pass through Spokane’s urban Riverfront Park, and end at the Washington-Idaho state line. At the end of the ride, you shuttle to your beautiful inn in Coeur d’Alene. Enjoy a delicious dinner together.
DAY 2 - Spectacular vistas & climbs
Distance: 14 or 27 miles | Terrain: Easier | The Roosevelt Inn
After a hearty breakfast at The Roosevelt Inn, you shuttle to Lovely Falls Park, the headwaters of the Spokane River. The Idaho portion of the Centennial Trail has you cycling along the majestic shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Along the way, find plenty of interpretive signs and rest areas to take in the beautiful scenery. You end today’s ride at The Roosevelt Inn. You can spend the afternoon relaxing, exploring the shops and streets of Coeur d’Alene or swimming in the lake. You are on your own for dinner tonight.
DAY 3 - Route of the Hiawatha
Distance: 15 or 28 miles | Terrain: Easier or Intermediate | Silver Mountain Resort
Pack up and move your home base to a resort in Kellogg for the remainder of the trip. After breakfast, you shuttle 90 minutes east to the trailhead of the famous Route of the Hiawatha. The Hiawatha is well-known for its scenic trestles and tunnels, including the 1.66 mile-long St. Paul Pass Tunnel, which remains a constant 47 degrees year-round. Interpretive signs along the route explain the fascinating history of the Milwaukee Road Railroad. Due to limited services, you enjoy a boxed lunch midday. At the end of the day, shuttle to the Silver Mountain Resort in Kellogg. Dinner at a local restaurant is capped by an enjoyable talk by a local historian.
DAY 4 - "Wild West" mining towns
Distance: 23 miles | Terrain: Easier or Intermediate | Silver Mountain Resort
After breakfast, shuttle to Shoshone Park in the mining town of Mullan and enjoy some downstream riding through the “Silver Valley,” home to a number of historic mining communities. Soon you pick up the official start of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes to enjoy views of the rocky, forested mountains, as you make your way to the utterly charming and “wild west” town of Wallace. History (and some hilarity!) await you as the citizens of Wallace have tenaciously preserved their town amidst an ever-changing landscape of fortunes lost and gained. Enjoy a visit to a silver mine, explore the Northern Railroad Depot Museum, mining museum, or “Oasis Bordello Museum.” Our cycle route continues west out of Wallace, leading you to our lodging at Silver Mountain Resort in Kellogg. Dinner is together tonight.
DAY 5 - Coeur d’Alenes
Distance: 39 or 46 miles | Terrain: Easier | Silver Mountain Resort
Begin cycling this morning from the Silver Mountain Resort. Today’s ride is entirely on the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and passes through some of the most beautiful scenery in Idaho. You cycle by an enchanting stretch of quiet wetlands to catch sight of numerous waterfowl, keeping an eye out for the occasional moose. As there are few services, we provide lunch at a local roadhouse along the route. Enjoy the optional ride to Cataldo Mission to see the oldest standing building in Idaho. At day’s end, we shuttle you from Harrison back to the resort in Kellogg. Final celebratory dinner is together in Kellogg.
DAY 6 - Departure Day
Distance: 16 miles | Terrain: Easier
Today is our final day of riding. Pack up your luggage and then shuttle to Harrison, where you ended yesterday’s ride. Enjoy the final section of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, through this region of chained lakes. Then cross Lake Coeur d’Alene over Chatcolet Bridge, once a swinging trestle. Keep an eye out for wildlife — as you may spot otters, beavers, coyotes, moose or birds of prey. Enjoy a picnic lunch along the way. At the end of our ride, we shuttle you for about an hour back to your starting point in Spokane by 3 p.m., where say our goodbyes.
