Hiawatha Rail Trail
Located on the Idaho-Montana line and south of Interstate 90 in the Bitterroot Mountains. With ten tunnels and seven high trestles, the Route of the Hiawatha on the old Milwaukee Road is one of the premier rail trails in the United States today. The portion given here in this guide covers the upper half of the reclaimed rail trail and includes six of the tunnels and three of the trestles. The trail drops only 300 feet in more than 7 miles, so the grade is very gentle. The Bitterroot, the St. Joe, and the Coeur d’Alene ranges converge here. Tread: All-gravel-surface rail bed converted to bike and pedestrian travel.
