Hiawatha Trail set to open Friday

One of the Inland Northwest’s most scenic mountain bike trails is set to reopen on May 24.

The trail can be enjoyed by people of all ages. A shuttle bus is available to transport you and your bike back to beginning of the trail.

The Route of the Hiawatha will be open from 8:30 am to 5 pm seven days a week from May 24 through September 22.

Trail passes are $12 for adults and $8 for kids between the ages of six and 13. Rental bikes, lights and helmets are available for rent at Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation Area.
