Easy to find.
I hope earlier in the season is a better experience. We went on the trail at the end of their season.
They were very short handed and the staff that was there was not super informative.
We called in advance and no one mentioned that the trail did not start from the lodge where you get your bikes. That would have been helpful on which vehicle we took.
*** you have to transport the bikes you rent to the trailhead that is a few miles away.
They will transport them for a fee, but they didn't volunteer that either.
*** the "comfort" bikes only refers to the seat I think. Check your bike before you leave. The trail is a crushed rock base. Don't let them give you a skinny tired road bike. Tires need to be a mountain or fat tired sort.
**** the "shuttle" is a verb, not a noun. They had a shortage of "shuttles" which means the old school buses. So we had about an hour between shuttles and missed the one we were in line for. Had to wait for the next. Which would not be terrible if there was food to buy. Unless you consider the mainly crushed granola bars that I think were crushed by the afore mentioned "shuttle". So bring some snacks.
****and if you have a bike helmet, bring it. They rent them but they are not much better than the snacks at the end of the trail.
*****And make sure you have a warm jacket. It is chilly in those tunnels.

We, over-all, liked the ride. It was expensive for what we had to put up with. Between the bike rental, helmet rental, and the trasport fee, we were almost at $400 for 4.
I had heard this was an amazing trail. I'd say is was a pretty trail ride and informative if you read the plackards along the way. But it was interesting to read the history of the railroads and all that entailed. They should have had the "end of the season" special like rent one-get one free and the price would have been on point. Those bikes were TIRED.

Must do when in the area!

This experience was the reason we changed our trip from going to the Boise area to exploring the Idaho Panhandle instead. Boy am I glad we did! This is truly a unique and wonderful experience. We went on a morning that had rained and it was a tad chilly. It was still so beautiful to be surrounded by nature and take our time to truly take it all in. Thanks to the prior reviews, we knew to be prepared. We spent time checking out the bikes at the rental place to make sure we had brakes that worked, adequate tire pressure (no too much, not too little) and overall felt good about the bikes. My chain came of twice but my husband easily put it back on.

The staff that helped us at check in and picking out the bikes were very friendly and helpful.

We brought extra seat padding for comfort and extra lights for the tunnels. We also brought water and snacks that we enjoyed along the way. We biked at a leisurely pace and stopped many times to just simply appreciate the views and enjoy the experience. I saw people of all ages and types of bikes. There was about a 30 minute wait at the end to catch the shuttle for a ride back up. You end the trail by riding through the long tunnel back to the parking area.

My advice is to be prepared and know that it is not a smooth bike path and the tunnels are wet and cold. Take your time, be safe and you'll end up making the best memories.

To start the bicycle that I rented was not that that great a shape it wouldn't go through the gears on the front and the brakes on the one side barely worked but they don't warn you about is going through the tunnel you need a better light on the bicycles my wife ended up going into the ditch on one side of the tunnel where the drainage is and now we're at the hospital due to a broken shoulder injury

Great experience!

While the website could use some work, once we arrived it was a great experience. The views you encounter are really breathtaking. If you are interested in the history of the line and the trains that operated along the route there are many markers along the trail that provide information. The tunnels and bridges are really something and you have to marvel at the men who built them. If you can do add this to your itinerary, do so!

Beautiful Bike trail- once in a lifetime experience
2021年8月 • 夫妻情侣
The bridges and trestles are awesome! Such amazing scenery. All the staff were friendly. The seat broke off my husband's bike and the company refunded him the bike rental fee. The long tunnel coming back was very muddy (all up your back) even when riding slow. We were really glad we took this trail despite those little things.

Great family adventure
I made my 25th trip on the Hiawatha Trail last month and number 26 is tomorrow. Started around 2008 when my oldest son was 6 and we have gone at least once (and up to 3 times) a summer ever since. The experience has always been fantastic and I have never had a problem that wasn't self inflicted (my only flat tire was the result of an off road trip into goatheads the day before).
Im not a big "review" person but tomorrow we have some friends joining us that have never done the ride before and she called me this morning, worried about the negative reviews she saw here on Trip Advisor.
I have spent the last 1/2 hour or so looking through the negative reviews and I am amazed at how hard some people work to get out of taking personal responsibility.
While it may be true that the trail/tunnel can be daunting or intimidating if you:
A) Have never been on a bike
B) Have severe claustrophobia (you can skip the scary tunnel if you want to)
C) Are elderly, in poor health, extremely obese/out of shape
D) Do not have the right equipment
E) Expect the shuttle busses to be pristine and have air conditioning (some clown seriously complained about this)
If any of these describes you, you probably should know going in that an almost 16 mile bike ride is not your thing.
I saw a complaint from June of this year talking about how horrible the surface is and that the woman was "worried my children would get brain damage", I can only assume that this person has never been off of a flat, straight, paved trail and didn't read the information on the website.
The trail is not paved asphalt, it's gravel and has one section toward the bottom where the rocks are a little bigger and the ride is a little rougher. Expect that this is not an automated Disney ride, you actually do have to do some work. Don't bring a 4 year old with training wheels. Don't bring your 75 year old mom who hasn't been on a bike since LBJ was in office. Don't bring 75 lbs of gear. Don't expect that when your legs get tired, an Uber will appear out of nowhere and whisk you off to the spa.
It's a great adventure for people who want some leisurely ADVENTURE.
Sorry for the rant. Enjoy the trails

Renters BEWARE Aug 2021
2021年8月 • 家庭
Be aware NO bike maintenance on ANY of the bikes have been done in the last TWO YEARS (per staff). I rented 5 adult bikes -- 4 recumbent and 1 comfort. They were delivered with none of the tires aired up (one went completely flat b4 the half-way point and had to ride remainder on rim). 2 lights didn't work at all, 1 light working light was taped on pointing far left (no help going thru tunnels), 4th light couldn't b tightened on handlebar and therefore pointed straight down. Thankfully other riders allowed us to ride between them thru most tunnels. A couple bikes had broken water bottle holders, only 1 had a rack, only 1 recumbent had a working seat adjustment (one wouldn't lock in any position and kept sliding forward and backward over every bump). 1 recumbent bike seat back was split in 2 horizontally and pinched when bike was jostled, 2 bike handle grips wouldn't stay on and worst of all 1 recumbent (the one with slide seat) didn't have working front brakes. Oddly there was a large contingent of staff hanging around at the trail head talking amongst themselves or trying to sell something. Unfortunately no staff along the trail to confirm everything in working order AND no cell service.
Beautiful scenery and great trail, but bike challenges made it more of a chore than fun.

Helpful above and beyond.
We were assembling our tandem in but my replacement master link didn't fit my chain. I was getting more and more frustrated when Ken, a member of staff, rode up. He couldn't get it to fit either, so he went to his truck, returned with a chain (and link), refused any payment, and wished us a good day. He saved our trip - I would have had to drive back to Lookout or further to see if they could help us.

The trip itself was excellent, even though the view was slightly obscured by smoke from the British Columbia fires. I was a bit worried about getting vertigo on the trestles but they have wide roadways, extensive cable railings, and side curbs. Expect to get splashed in the tunnels if you don't have fenders on your bike.

A great lifetime experience
2021年8月 • 家庭
This was an amazing lifetime experience. We loved it!! Full of fun and gorgeous views. I would definitely go again, but have learned a few things from the first time around. First, make sure you have a great bike with good tires, good brakes, but most importantly… for the love of all that is good….get a good seat… a big one with TONS of padding. Bring one with you if you have to. OR buy bikers shorts with the built in padding. Not having either of those made it hard and painful by the end. Also I was wishing my bike had high handle bars like the cruisers so I could sit up straight. My back and arms were killing me from being bent over for three hours. The first part of the trail was pretty smooth and I was thinking it was a piece of cake. But after three miles, the path changed to be more rocky and rougher. That’s not bad, I just didn’t expect that. It was glorious to be mostly downhill. The headlights are a must. The shuttle crews were much appreciated as I cannot imagine having to turn around and bike 16 miles UP the mountain. We wouldn’t have made it. I highly recommend at least 60oz of water per person, but I wished I had more. There could be a long wait at the bottom for the buses in the hot sun, so more water is a must. We packed sandwiches and snacks and we were very glad that we did. Make sure that you start as early as possible to avoid long wait shuttle lines. And if you don’t have a reservation for the shuttle, you probably are not getting on so get ready for a hard 16 mile climb back. The bus ride back is about 30 minutes and they take you to the bottom of the first tunnel, so be prepared to get back on your bike for one last 1.66 mile ride through the long tunnel in order to get to your car. We had a blast and felt very accomplished for the challenge. While it’s mild exercise, it’s 3 hours of it so it felt challenging toward the end. I realize others might feel like the whole thing is a piece of cake. Also I recommend checking out the videos that are on Youtube about Hiawatha Trail ahead of time. BTW, we saw a moose on the way up on the bus which was very cool. One more thing, you have to start at Look Out Pass ski resort to get your paper tickets for the trail, rental, and for shuttle. THEN you go to the trail head which is about 5 miles away. The line at the ski resort was pretty long so build in at least an hour for getting those first. It is a long day but a great day.

Awesome bike ride!
If you like gorgeous pine covered mountain views, railroad history and cycling this is a total no brainer. If you are traveling within a couple hours of this bike trail you need to add this to your itinerary...period. To make a long story short, we found this by accident when researching a route between Spokane, WA and Kalispell, MT and boy are we glad we did. We took the advice of making a reservation which I would strongly recommend. Since we were traveling by rental car without our own gear, we made use of the full service available. We rented the bikes, helmets, lights, bike transportation and we signed up for the boxed lunch. I can't say enough about how wonderful the entire experience was. From the greeter at the registration line to the mechanics that made sure our bikes were ready for the trail, everyone at Lookout Pass was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The ride is amazing, the views, the trestles and the tunnels all make for an unforgettable bike ride. The ages of the riders we encountered looked to be from around 5 years old to over 65 years old. With that said, there are definitely places where there is nothing preventing someone from riding off the edge of the trail and down a rather steep slope or cliff so bike control and knowing how to stop is absolutely important. The trestles are less intimidating with a curb and railing on both sides. The trail is wide and there is more than enough room. It truly is a gentle downhill ride as the brochure says (unless you want to ride back up vs taking the shuttle). We took our time, stopped often to enjoy the views and take photos and we finished the ride one way in about 3 1/2 hours. It's self paced so you can do it as fast or as slow as you like. You only need to finish in time to catch a shuttle. Amazing time! Just do it!
