Route of the Hiawatha
The Route of the Hiawatha is the "crown jewel" of Idaho rail-to-trail mountain
bike routes. It was said to be one of the most breathtaking scenic stretches of
railroad in the country, accessible by Interstate 90 at the Idaho/Montana state
line - 22 miles east of Silver Mountain's Gondola Village in Kellogg, Idaho.
The Hiawatha Trail is typically open daily from the end of May thru the end
of September (dependent on weather) from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST. Check for
an updated schedule.
The 15-mile rugged Bitterroot Mountain trail winds through 10 tunnels and 7 high
trestles between Montana and Idaho.
