Rail to Trail cyclists on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes will find convenient lodgings at Watsons, Rose Lake Resort, half way between Harrison and Kellogg Trailheads, We're just 25 minutes east of Coeur d'Alene, making this a great base from which to explore the new 300k Bitterroot Loop.
Stay in the modern vacation suite, bring your RV, or pitch a tent in the grass. There are also rustic camping cabins for guests on a budget. All overnight stays are by donation only. Watsons is two miles from Bull Run Trailhead and you can request a courtesy shuttle if you prefer not to ride on the highway.
Cyclists are saying The Route of the Hiawatha and Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes are two of the best rail to trail rides in the country. Watson's is just 2 miles from I-90 and 40 minutes west of Lookout Pass, where you can rent gear to ride the Hiawatha Trail. Are you ready for 15 miles of gentle downhill backcountry cycling through old train tunnels, over sky high tressels, and plenty of spectacular North Idaho scenery?
“John - We had such a great trip and are just getting back to normal around here. I have too many photos to email them all, Your place is great John, the cabins are so cute and the upstairs is very well set up. For our families, the distance from Harrison to Kellogg would have been too far to cycle in one day, so Rose Lake was a great stop for us."

The Bitterroot Loop is a network of dedicated cycling trails, multi-use roads, and a 12-mile stretch of state highway. If starting at the Coeur d'Alene tribal Veteran's Memorial Park in Plummer, follow the loop to Heyburn State Park and the town of Harrison, and on to Idaho's Silver Valley. Watsons is the perfect overnight stop between Harrison and Kellogg. From Wallace, ride to Lookout Pass to get on the Hiawatha Trail. At the bottom of the Hiawatha, cycle to Avery, then along the St. Joe River to St. Maries. Cyclists who overnight at the Pines Motel in St. Maries can request a courtesy shuttle back to a trail of the Coeur d'Alenes trailhead.
