SKI IDAHO THIS SUMMER : Attracting 70,000 riders each summer, the Route of the Hiawatha is by far the most popular ski area bike trail in the U.S. and is celebrating its 25th anniversary this summer. Considered the crown jewel of the nation's rails-to-trails initiative, the 15-mile Route of the Hiawatha's gentle 2-percent, all-downhill ride straddles the Idaho-Montana state line, delves 10 tunnels, crosses seven sky-high train trestles, and sports shuttle service. Lookout Pass, a nearby ski resort in north Idaho that also straddles the Montana state line, operates the trail under a permit from the U.S. Forest Service. It is among 11 Idaho ski areas that offer summer mountain biking adventures, scenic chairlift and gondola rides, hiking and trail running, disc golf, zipline tours, horseback riding, and more.
