Description A stunningly beautiful route travelling the length of the Columbia River Gorge, passing through the vast open spaces of SE Washington, traversing Idaho via the iconic Trail Of the Couer díAlene, conquering Thompson Pass, crossing the vast plains of the Flathead Indian Reservation, and finishing in scenic Whitefish, MT. Either end of the route is easily accessible to Amtrak, so the route can be conveniently ridden in both directions.
