» Hiawatha Bike Trail
by Diana Tolerico
I have been a full-time RVer for 14 years, primarily “boondocking,” camping free without hookups, in the Western US. I am connected electronically with the world via satellite TV, cell phone and internet card. My batteries are charged by solar panels.
The Hiawatha Bike Trail, just off I-90 on the Montana-Idaho border, is one of the most scenic Rail-to-Trails in the US. It follows the “Route of the Hiawatha,” the Milwaukee Railroad’s intercontinental railroad, which was completed in 1909.
The best part is that it’s all downhill! You can pay for a shuttle back to the top, but since there were 10 of us, we did our own shuttle.
