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 over the Bitterroot and St. Joe Mountains. Our full day trip includes transport to and from Coeur d’Alene and a trailside picnic lunch. Minimum group size 6, maximum of 30.
Our Hiawatha Trail Bike Tours depart the ROW Adventure Center at 8:00am. We ask that guests arrive early in order to meet your guide, get a quick orientation, and to fill out liability release forms. Liability release forms are required for all participants on any ROW Adventure. Once all of our guests have arrived, we depart the ROW Adventure Center for the trailhead. Before getting on your bike, your guide will help properly fit you to your bike and provide you with a complete safety orientation. At the end of the trail, our vehicle is ready to provide transportation back to Coeur d'Alene.
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.
