People from all over the world come to Idaho to enjoy mountain and road biking in some of the most pristine and tranquil locations imaginable.
For mountain bikers, Idaho has more than 12,000 miles of single track trails and at least twice that in four-wheel-drive dirt roads.
For road bikers, the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes is a 72-mile paved path that extends from Plummer, Idaho, to Mullan, Idaho. And don’t miss the Coeur d’Alene Parkway. The parkway is part of the nationally famous North Idaho Centennial Trail, a multi-use recreational trail system that meanders for 24 miles from the Idaho/Washington state line. Several of Idaho state parks are excellent base camps for a road or mountain bike adventure. Those looking for cycling adventure should also check out the Ashton to Tetonia Trail in East Idaho. Class 1 and 2 E-Bikes are allowed in Idaho State Parks and on department-administered trails and paths — except for the Lewiston Levee Parkway, a portion of which runs through Hells Gate State Park.
In Idaho, you can support your sport by purchasing an Idaho Mountain Bike license plate or by becoming an Idaho Trails Supporter. The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation will use the proceeds for the preservation, maintenance and expansion of recreation trails in Idaho.
