Established 1938 - A Social Organization for Adults based on Recreation

Here's What's Hot!

Hiawatha Trail plus Silverwood Amusement Park

This bike ride is a bucket list event. Jane Gabbert took the club to bike the Hiawatha Trail back in 2004, and some members have been back many times since. It is the most beautiful, coolest place on earth.

The Trail of the Hiawatha is an old railroad track that winds through 17 spectacular scenic miles of the Bitterroot Mountains. The trail is studded with ten tunnels (the longest is nearly 2 miles long), seven trestles (the highest is 850 feet long and 230 feet high), dozens of educational signs, thousands of trees and animals, hundreds of.... Well, hopefully you get the picture. And while numbers don't lie, they also can't come close to describing the beauty and grandeur of this Idaho classic. The compacted dirt trail itself is at a 2% grade downhill. You barely have to peddle with 2,000 feet of elevation change.

Have we captured your attention yet? Are you ready to ride this fantastic trail, and then spend time at the Silverwood Amusement Park? Click the link below for all the information you need for this fantastic trip!!
