My parents decided to rent a condo on Coeur D’Alene Lake this summer for a week long family gathering. While we had planned on several excursions and outings, various travel constraints and an emergency root canal for my mom kept us hanging out at the condo most days. Which relaxing by the lake is still pretty good.
One activity we were able to participate in was biking the Hiawatha Trail. The Hiawatha is a most enjoyable trail that leads you through tunnels and across train trusses in a fairly leisurely route. Because the trail is privately operated you should expect to pay about $18 for a pass and bus transport, money well worth it because the ride is really pleasant and the views are great.
I can’t really estimate how long the trail takes to ride because myself and a few other members of the family stopped regularly to take pictures. Although I did try to keep things going by taking quite a few shots while on the go. It works fairly well but framing is a bit of a challenge.
