The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes Unofficial Guidebook and 300K Bitterroot Loop for 2013 is filled with practical information, like where to get important things like drinking water and emergency bike parts, to where to eat, stay, and play during your North Idaho backwoods bicycle tour. Entries under the individual trailheads are like detailed mini-itineraries for trailside communities.
Since there is no camping allowed along the trail-right-of-way, and lots of the adjacent property is private, you will want to know exactly where you can get off the trail to do things like camp, sit around a bonfire, and swim.
Why just zip along as fast as possible, when there are many enriching discoveries to be made? Relax, look around, learn. Ground yourself in the history of the area and discover fun and intriguing side trips. It's easy to spend a week-long vacation on the Bitterroot Loop, and with this guidebook, you will have the information you need to do it completely without a car.
