Riding the Hiawatha is a unique and memorable experience! Combine the mountain scenery with the tunnels and trestle bridges on the trail and this is worth the effort. If you start at the top (east) side and ride down, it is an easy enough ride...More

Our group of six (three couples 63- 73 years old) really enjoyed the history and nontechnical nature of the trail. After reading lots of reviews about the potential dangers of the first tunnel we were concerned enough to alter our starting point to avoid it....More

I loved the trail and its beautiful scenery. The very first thing you do on this ride is go through a 1.66 mile tunnel. You will need a light or two. Most of the people that I saw riding in the tunnel had two lights....More

This ride was even better than expected. It is a gentle downhill ride. The scenery is beautiful. We took the shuttle back to the parking lot and was glad we did. Everything was well organized, well maintained and well done!

Yes, if you are an experienced rider in gravel roads or pavé. The road varies over the 15 miles from mostly packed dirt over concrete, to very loose smooth rocks. The loose sections will be a challenge even on a gravel bike... More
