While the above map from our first brochure in March 2004 is easy to view,
it is not meant to be printed. An high resolution (2352 by 1148 pixel)
version of this early
Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes map may be opened
in a separate window.
Or you may open the PDF file
in a separate window to give a readable 7.84 by 3.83 inch map at
a resolution of 300 dpi.
The EIGHTH edition of 20,000
Trails of the Idaho Panhandle
maps are now in circulation.
This is the same quantity as the sixth and seventh editions published
The current 17" x 22", 20-panel color brochure has the
Route of the Hiawatha
featured on the back panel, but is otherwise similar to the seventh edition,
which also had a forest green front panel.
As before, information on the former railbed of the
Old Milwaukee Road is featured.
We are working to enhance this route 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.
We are working with
Lolo National Forest personel to make this a safe, multi-use
The current edition includes information on
hospitality providers along
the Trail of the Coeur
d'Alenes in Harrison, Enaville, Kellogg and Wallace,
plus listings for enterprises in St. Maries, Calder and Avery
on 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),
and parts of the Milwaukee Road railbed
(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."
