Idaho trails featured in latest Everytrail guides

The Trail of the Couer d' Alenes, a paved path that runs for 72 miles from the backwoods of northern Idaho to the shores of beautiful Lake Couer d' Alene is one of two featured trails on both Everytrail and trailsnet.com.

Bikers rest outside one of ten tunnels
 found along the Route of the Hiawatha
  bicycle trail in northern Idaho.
This trail is famous for it's perfectly sloped grade and smooth surface. It is ideal for inline skating, recumbent cycles, bikes, and Trikkes. If your idea of a good time is bumping and bouncing over tree roots, rocks, and ruts or constantly avoiding deadly encounters with cars, then you might not like this trail. But For the rest of us, the Trail of the Couer d' Alenes is paradise on earth.

The other trail featured this month is the Route of the Hiawatha, another great northern Idaho trail. It is not paved, like the Couer d' alene trail, but it has some of the greatest trail tunnels and trestles anywhere in the world. It is also rife with wildlife, history, and bodacious scenery.

Visit trailsnet and Everytrail to view these two great Idaho trails and start planning your trail trip today.

Absolutely fantastic idea for a blog! I love it! Thank you so much for linking up!

Thanks for the blog compliment and you're welcome for the link. We love sharing information about trails. Hopefully we'll be able to add some Australia trails sometime soon.
If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I know there's a great rail trail in the mountains near Melbourne, and I'm sure there are more that I haven't discovered yet.

Happy trails and it's a pleasure exchanging links with you.

Gosh I wouldn't even know where to begin! Australia has trails pretty much everywhere! haha.
But I'd definitely love to see what ones you discover when you add some Australian trails too!

I look forward to a second Australia trip so I can focus on searching for awesome trails. On my first trip there, I was the leader for a group of students/parents, so I was unable to seek out any trails.
Next time, I'll be studentless, so I'll be able to spend more time exploring.
Thanks again Kirsty.
