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."
