What a pleasant surprise. We LOVED this trail!!
Starting out, we did not expect to enjoy it.
The surface was rocky and we were riding beside I-90.
The prospect of a rough ride
along with heavy traffic was not too exciting.
The surprise was that the surface soon smoothed out,
sometimes even quite smooth; we were
far enough away from the highway that you seldom
realized it was there -- and eventually it wasn't.
The trail loops around mountain ledges completely away
from the highway.
Although riding from Saltese toward Lookout Pass is a constant
uphill climb, it was not that difficult and we were
quite shocked when we discovered how far up the mountain
we were. And the ride down was WONDERFUL!
The trail crosses the Montana/Idaho State Line at
Lookout Pass becoming Mullan Pass-Lookout Pass Loop
to Mullan, Shoshone County Idaho. We look forward
to riding it again someday and continuing all the way
