Pacific Northwest Self-Guided Bike Tour

Starting in Spokane, Washington, the heart of the Inland Northwest, this 5-day self-guided itinerary offers a tri-state adventure like no other. Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, and Western Montana offer scenic and pristine mountain landscapes. You pedal alongside the Spokane River as it flows towards the mighty Columbia River, next to the shore of beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene, and then through the historic Silver Valley of North Idaho.

Your last day is spent on crown jewel of rails-to-trails – the historical Hiawatha Trail, biking through tunnels and across dramatic trestles that span canyons of the Bitterroot Mountains on the Idaho/Montana border. At the end we return you to Spokane for your travels home. This trip has plenty to offer in 5 days full of nature, history and superb bike trails.

Day 0

Travel from your home to Spokane, WA. Lodging is on your own this day.

Day 1

Spokane - Coeur d'Alene, Idaho on the Centennial Trail, 37 miles. Enjoy the Centennial Trail, as you pedal on excellent paved trails along the Spokane River, across the Washington/Idaho border, and into the beautiful lakeside town of Coeur d'Alene.

Day 2

Coeur d'Alene – Morning ride to Higgins Point Park, round trip 16 miles. This section of the Centennial Trail takes you along the shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene. In the afternoon enjoy an optional kayak tour on Lake Coeur d'Alene, or enjoy the town on your own.

Day 3

Transfer to Plummer, Idaho and ride to Harrison, 16 miles. ROW Adventure Center provides a transfer to Plummer, Idaho, the westernmost access point to the Trail of The Coeur d'Alenes. Tonight you stay in the lakeside hamlet of Harrison, ID. 

Day 4

Harrison to Kellogg 36 miles. Today is another great day on the Trail of The Coeur d'Alenes. Your ride takes through wetlands and along the Coeur d'Alene River, before entering the Silver Valley, rich in mining history. (Note: If you'd rather ride more, go all the way to Wallace for a total of 49 miles.)

Day 5

Kellogg-Route of the Hiawatha-Spokane. Ride 15 miles on the Hiawatha Trail, the most dramatic rails-to-trails trail yet created in the U.S. This is a crushed-gravel trail. You pass through seven tunnels, the longest of which is almost two miles long, and over a number of high trestles with spectacular mountain views. You can choose to ride just one way, or do a round-trip (30 miles).

At the end of the day, ROW Adventure Center provides transportation back to Spokane, WA prior to your departure back home.

This is a nice trip and the personnel are good to work with. I strongly recommend it. There are a few reasons I did not rate it a 5, all easily fixed:
* The lights provided to ride through the Hiawatha tunnel were inadequate.
* There was a glitch at the start and we had to wait in Spokane for someone to meet us at the office.
* The instructions on where to find our lodging could have been better.
On a personal note: I didn't find riding a mile through a dark, wet tunnel much fun. If I go back I plan to ride up from the bottom to the main tunnel, turn around and ride back down skipping the long tunnel.

I would highly recommend this trip for bikers. The trails were flat which made pedaling easy. The sights were incredible. I really enjoyed the trestle bridges and tunnels. All the accommodations were clean and well located with helpful people. The luggage always arrived on time.
