Family Fun, Idaho Trails

This incredible bike tour takes in the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and the Route of the Hiawatha, a pair of the most spectacular pathways in the U.S. And while history might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re talking Idaho, this trip is brimming with it, along with enjoyable and easy riding through wetlands, lakes, meadows, and forests.

The Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes traces the course of an abandoned Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way, reaching from the Silver Valley, near the Montana border, to Plummer, not far from Idaho’s border with Washington. The Route of the Hiawatha originates in Montana and then burrows beneath the state line through the memorable 1.7-mile-long Taft Tunnel. We’ll pass through several more tunnels and ride over numerous trestles, some of them an impressive 200-plus feet high.

With its gentle terrain, short daily distances, and gorgeous scenery, this trip is a great choice whether you’re a beginner seeking a great introduction to supported bicycle touring or a cycling veteran craving a mellow, traffic-free adventure.
