Explore Idaho's Rails to Trails Bike Paths With Us!
As modes of transportation have evolved and railroads in certain parts of the United States have been abandoned, a new use for these old railroad right-of-ways has been born. The conversion of former railroad routes to new trails is known as a “rails-to-trails” conversion and today the U.S. boasts an extensive system of these trails around the country. Railroad beds are ideal for cycling tours as they have minimal elevation gain or loss. In addition, they often follow rivers, lake shores and pass through some of the world’s most dramatic scenery.
Near our headquarters in Coeur d’Alene, we are lucky to have some of the best in the nation including two that are in the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Hall of Fame! These are the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and the legendary Route of the Hiawatha. Our Idaho cycle tours take place on these two trails as well as the Washington/Idaho Centennial Trail and the Route of the Olympian. We have bases in both Spokane and Coeur d’Alene and as a local company you benefit from both our extensive knowledge of the area, as well as our local guides. We are proud of our professional, enthusiastic guides, who bring current and historical perspective to share with you, enriching your tour with stories that only a local would know.
Having ridden these trails for years, we’ve designed our tours to minimize driving and highlight the most scenic sections of trail. Because our tours ride from one location to the next logical destination on the trail, you gain an understanding of our local geography while also being steeped in the beauty of the forests and mountains. Come join us for laughter, discovery and learning!
