The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes Unofficial Guidebook: Including the 300K Bitterroot Loop is filled with practical information, from 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? 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.
Trail Guide Vendors
In addition to Amazon, brick and mortar vendors sell the guidebook along the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes and in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene metro area. This time of year you will find many are sold out of the previous year's edition. As the new updated version of the guidebook is distributed, their names will be changed to bold. One place that almost always has a stock of the older versions is Gray Dog Press.
