You’ll get to check these two Rail-to-Trail Conservancy’s Hall of Fame trails off of your bucket list! The Hiawatha treats you to 10 tunnels, including the famous “Taft Tunnel” at 8771 feet long, and 7 steel trestles – one of which is 220 feet high. As you can imagine, stunning scenery and grand vistas await!
An awesome highlight: Riding though the 1.66 mile Taft Tunnel. This tunnel was used by the Milwaukee railroad to cross between Idaho and Montana under the crest of the Bitterroot Mountains. Midway through the tunnel an interpretive sign shows the border between the states which was first reached by railroad crews in 1907. There is also a beautiful waterfall at the west portal of the tunnel. You will want to bring a good bike light as the tunnel is dark.

Itinerary:
Day 1: Today’s ride beings in Spokane, WA. There are two ride options today. You might be ready to enjoy the town of Coeur d’Alene when you arrive at Hotel Blackwell in the afternoon. Or enjoy an additional 12 miles of biking. Continue out of Coeur d’Alene to Higgens Point and the end of the North Idaho Centennial Trail.

Day 2: Your ride begins in Plummer, Idaho along the shoreline of sparkling Lake Coeur d’Alene. The silky pavement makes the ride sheer joy. Parts of the trail are on a levee that was built for the Union Pacific Railroad in the middle of the lake, you feel like you are floating on the water. As the trail departs Lake Coeur d’Alene it begins to follow the Coeur d’Alene River through Silver Valley as you ride to Kellogg, Idaho.

Day 3: Begin your day in East Portal, Montana . Enjoy cycling through the 1.7 mile long Taft Tunnel that travels through the Continental Divide under the Bitterroot Mountain Range and delivers you into Idaho. You are now on the Route of the Hiawatha Trail, The Loop Creek valley opens before you, serving up absolutely breathtaking scenery with spectacular views from the 7 high railroad trestles you’ll cross.

Day 4: Get ready to ride on three different trails! Your ride begins at Randolph Creek, Montana on the Norpac Trail with a detour on the Hiawatha Trail and then continuing on the the Route of the Coeur d’Alene. The day concludes with a shuttle back to Spokane where we will bid our farewells.
