Northern Idaho: possibly the closest you'll get to heaven on a bike. Bicycle a glorious network of paved rails-to-trails paths beside rivers and lakes, through wildlife refuges and pure wilderness with nary a car in sight. Splash in the crystal waters of Lake Coeur d'Alene. Ride, hike - even fit in a round of golf if you wish. Stay the entire time at the grand Roosevelt Inn, a 5-story historic property that is Coeur d'Alene's oldest remaining schoolhouse This short, sweet and phenomenal trip works perfectly for those who seek flattish routes, plenty of wilderness and low-to-zero traffic.

Pedal a tranquil 40 miles to Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - along the riverfront Spokane Centennial Trail and the North Idaho Centennial Trail. This afternoon: enjoy the lake!

From Spokane's Riverfront Park, ride the paved Spokane Centennial Trail beside the Spokane River to the intersection with the North Idaho Centennial Trail. Between the two, it's possible to ride from Spokane, Washington to beautiful Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, cycling for miles without seeing a car. Spend the next three nights at the grand Roosevelt Inn, originally the area's first permanent schoolhouse. Take time for a dip in the lake before dinner - it's just a short walk from the inn. 


The Hiawatha Trail: ride over the rivers and through the woods on what was once touted as 'one of the most scenic stretches of railroad in the country.'

Another fantastic rails-to-trails project, the Route of the Hiawatha Trail was originally hailed as one of the most scenic stretches of railroad in the country. When the Milwaukee Railroad was operating, the trains traversed through 11 tunnels and over 9 trestles, covering a route across the rugged Bitterroot Mountains between Idaho and Montana. The "Route of the Hiawatha" is most famous for the long St. Paul Pass, or Taft Tunnel which burrows for 8771 ft. (1.66 miles) under the Bitterroot Mountains at the state line. Enjoy the stellar views on a blissfully car-free day! 


From the Cataldo Mission, bike the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes and cruise the shores of the lake.

Ride from the oldest standing building in Idaho - the Cataldo Mission, established in the early 1840s - to The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. A former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way, today's paved trail was originally a path traveled by the Coeur d'Alene Indians. Ultimately it became a rail line carrying silver and lead ore from mines in Mullan, Burke and Kellogg to terminals on the Palouse prairie from 1887 to 1992; today it's worth its weight in gold as a scenic bikeway. Pedal through old growth forest, beneath mountain vistas and beside the shores of glorious Lake Coeur d'Alene. 


Explore a bit more of the lake hailed by National Geographic as 'one of the world's most beautiful.'

Continue exploring the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene by bike. Once described by National Geographic as one of the five most beautiful lakes in the world - and boasting 109 miles of shoreline - we’ve only just rippled the surface. Spot bald eagles hunting kokanee in the lake’s sparkling waters. Soak up the friendly small-town charm of Coeur d’Alene before heading back to Spokane.
