In time for distribution at the March 2013 Portland and Seattle
bike shows, we published our
the NINTH edition of 20,000
Trails of the Idaho Panhandle.
These updated maps are now in distribution to local Chambers
of Commerce and other local organizations.
You may use the form on our Contact Us
page to request one or two free copies of these maps.
Requests for larger quantities are handled on a case by case basis;
call Rick at (208) 691-9169 to inquire.
This is the same quantity as the eighth edition published
in March 2012. These 17" x 22", 20-panel color brochures
(with a forest green front panel background color and
Route of the Hiawatha on the
back panel) are similar to the seventh and eighth edition
brochures in that they provide information on the former railbed of the
Old Milwaukee Road,
which we are working to enhance as a multi-use recreational
road and bike trail along the breathtaking St. Joe River.
Our interest in promoting the Old Milwaukee Road from
the East Portal of the Taft Tunnel to Saltese,
Montana, is also indicated on the map itself.
We are continuing to work with Lolo National Forest personnel
to make this a safe, multi-use recreational trail.
We are again pleased to have the Route of
the Hiawatha as our sponsor on the back panel, and suggest
that you visit
for more information on this crown jewel of
Silver Mountain Resort is a repeat
hospitality provider in our ninth edition.
If you are a downhill daredevil, you will definately want to challenge
yourself on their mountain. Twenty-five other food and lodging providers
located in Harrison, Enaville, Kellogg, Wallace, Mullan, St. Maries and
Calder and Avery will help you as you travel along
the Trail of the Coeur
d'Alenes and the Old Milwaukee Road.
As always, our maps are complementary, and are
yours for the asking.
However, we do include
a membership form with
each map in the hope that
you will return the favor by joining us as we work
to build a unified 185 mile bike loop that includes
the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes (paved for bikes and
blades), the Northern Pacific railbed (dirt for multi-use),
(mostly dirt for multi-use),
which includes the Route of the Hiawatha (dirt
for mountain bikes and boots).
We have dubbed this adventure the
"Bitterroot 300K Loop"
to entice our Canadian riders.
