One of the highlights of the Idaho Panhandle is hiking or biking the Route of the Hiawatha Bike Trail (ridethehiawatha.com), the former fifteen-mile stretch of rail line between Roland and Pearson that runs through ten tunnels and travels over seven high trestles; the 1.7 mile-long St. Paul Pass tunnel is the highlight. Trail passes are $10; there is a shuttle between Pearson and Roland that costs $9. The equally spectacular Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes runs 73 miles from Mullan to Plummer (see parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/parks/trail-coeur-d-alenes).
