On the Idaho/Montana border, the Old Milwaukee Railroad has been transformed into one of the most breathtaking bike rides in the world. This is rugged country with big mountains, and to keep the grade, railroad engineers designed a series of tunnels and high trestle bridges that remain today as remarkable engineering feats. On this 15-mile ride you’ll pedal through ten tunnels including the 1.6 mile-long Taft Tunnel. You’ll cross over seven canyon-spanning trestles with panoramic views of the Bitterroot and St. Joe Mountains. Our full day trip includes transport to and from Coeur d’Alene and a trailside picnic lunch.
ROW Adventures provides guided tours on the Route of the Hiawatha as a partner with Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area under their permit with the US Forest Service.
