- Even though the trail is surrounded by rivers, streams, and lakes, bring plenty of your own water. It is not advisable to drink the water from nearby waterways. - Cell phone service is spotty in some areas, so don't rely on a mobile phone as your only communication method. - Although pets are allowed on the trail, they should be kept on a fairly short leash and under constant supervision. Always pick up after your pet and deposit their "trail donations" in the proper receptacles.

Great. Saw no one. Nice stroll through snow & ice. Heard traffic, yet air fresh and walk felt great.

My wife and I started at Plummer Junction and cranked East. Great trail! Did not pass a single runner and only two walkers and just two dogs.

Nice trail. Was surprised to see it was all paved, I didn't expect that! Did a quick out and back with my wife and kids from Cataldo to Kellogg. First ten miles were gorgeous, last few were a little dull. Saw a bull moose which was very cool

I started at the Plummer trailhead. Trail is nice- mostly flat, well-paved, and gorgeous ride through a forest and then around Lake Chacolet.

Jumped on our bikes at Wallace Inn and rode 50+ miles to Harrison. A beautiful slightly downhill ride. Very scenic, as well. The “highlight”, during our ride, was a 40-minute wait while a moose & her calfs enjoyed dining trailside shrubs.

I completed this trail yesterday. I started in Mullan and it took me 10 hours to ride to Plummer. The entire length of the trail is paved and well maintained. If you want to see all that northern Idaho has to offer I would suggest this trail. There are continuous views, as well as moose, deer, birds, and other creatures. I'm glad I was able to accomplish this trail because I doubt I'll be wanting to do the entire length again - one and done!

This was a great ride. Path is well maintained and there was a nice breeze off the water. It wasnt to crowded so you did not have to worry about speed (I was on a bike).

This is by far the best bike trails anywhere I have been in the world. We did the section from Plummer to Harrison Idaho today. Crossing the Chatcolet Bridge is my favorite part of this ride. We are starting a tradition of stopping in Harrison for some outstanding ice cream - and of course we feel guilty, so we burn off as many of the calories as we can.
