Starting in Spokane, Washington, known as the heart of the Inland Northwest, this 4-day self-guided tour includes the best biking in Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, and Western Montana. The one-of-a-kind itinerary offers picturesque mountain, lakeshore, and riverside landscapes. You ride the Centennial Trail alongside the Spokane River and beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene, the Trail of The Coeur d’Alenes through the historic Silver Valley of North Idaho, and on the last day, you pedal the crown jewel of the rails-to-trails: the historical Hiawatha Trail, cruising through seven tunnels and over ten trestles that offer beautiful panoramic views of the Bitterroot Mountains on the Idaho/Montana border.
Day 0) Travel from your home to Spokane, WA. Lodging is on your own this day.
Day 1) Spokane, WA to Coeur d'Alene, ID on the Centennial Trail, 37 miles. Pedal the Centennial trail from downtown Spokane, WA across the Washington/Idaho state line, and into the beautiful town of Coeur d'Alene.
Day 2) Transfer on our shuttle to Plummer, Idaho and ride to Harrison, 16 miles. Today, cruise from Plummer to Harrison, ID on the renowned Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. The ride takes you around the southern end of Lake Coeur d'Alene to the charming town of Harrison, ID. (Today, you are responsible for transporting overnight necessities in the panniers we provide you with, as we don't transfer luggage to Harrison. We can add luggage transport for this leg by request, at an extra cost.)
Day 3) 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 4) 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.
