Summer Riding in Idaho

Gem State Biking & Horseback Rides


Idaho Cyclist

Idaho Cyclist

Summer means it's time to get off your feet...and take advantage of Idaho's bike paths and horseback trails.

Thanks to Idaho’s scenic and sometimes challenging terrain, mountain biking and long-distance cycling have become popular summer activities.

Not only does Idaho host the annual Ironman Coeur d'Alene – where participants bike more than 100 miles – but it also features many bike-friendly national forests, state parks, and recreational areas.

Visit Coeur d'Alene for the Silver Mountain Ski & Summer Resort – home to what is said to be some of the best road, cross-country, and downhill biking in the state.

Tackle the 73-mile Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes, or choose the 15-mile bike path through the Bitterroot Mountains. More biking is found at the Ponderosa State Park – set in the central Idaho town of McCall against Payette Lake. Cyclists are encouraged to try the Huckleberry Bay Mountain Bike Trail, or the Fox Run Mountain Bike Trail.

But that’s all the biking in Idaho. Check out the Saint Anthony Sand Dunes in eastern Idaho, just northeast of Idaho Falls. Open from April through December, the St. Anthony Sand Dunes features a 10,600-acre of sand dunes perfect for dirt biking – and also ATVs, motorcycles, and dune buggies.

For those of you looking to tour the Idaho countryside on horseback, look no further than the Targhee National Forest. Set north of Driggs in eastern Idaho, the Targhee National Forest features several hundred miles of horseback riding trail throughout the 1,600,000-acre forest.
