Farragut State Park

Average Rating:    (4.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

The Farragut State Park trail map shows 32 miles of marked singletrack. However, I rode most all the trails (marked and unmarked) and my bike computer indicated 54 miles during a two day ride on which I tried not to ride the same trail. Some of the singletrack runs along the shore of Lake Pend Orielle. Be sure and pick up a trail map at the park entrance to ensure you ride all the singletrack.

Summary:
Relatively easy trails, but the numbering system is a nightmare. The trail INTERSECTIONS are labeled, not the specific trails, so you must pull out the map to see that the new number is for the next portion of the trail.

I admit I get lost easier than most, but my wife and I, along w/another couple we passed were not impressed w/the trail labels.

Ride it for fun and consider it a serendipitous day of exploring along w/deja vu...as you'll likely retrace your bike tracks...and not by choice.

Recommended Route:
The Squirrel Cache Loop was the easiest to follow w/a few ups/downs and rocky sections.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Go to Canfield mountain off Nettleton Gulch road. Good riding - catch the Cave trail for a fun downhill finish.

Summary:
I rode this trail with a couple of natives. It was one of the most fun rides I have done and the scenery was amazing. The trail ride we took was about 15 miles long. Single track along the lake that was slightly technical but could be ridden by a beginner except for a couple of 10 yard spots.
It was fun to fly over the single track through the trees. If I were closer I would ride this area often. The natives that took me on this ride say they do it 3-4 times a week. There is nothing real difficult but could be enjoyed by riders of all skill levels. I would not be afraid to take my 11 year old out for a leisurely ride.
Pick up a map at the State Park Lodge. If you can find some natives that will highlight the area you can save a lot of time because there is single track everywhere. I will do this ride everytime I get back to Northern Idaho.
What also makes it great is that only bikes and hikers are allowed on many of the trails. Some allow horses but I saw no remnants of them. It was great not having any motorcycles around. Saw Deer and other wildlife.

Recommended Route:
There are a lost of trails and you can pick what you want.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
CDA has some fun and beautiful rides also.

Summary:
Probably the best kept secret in Idaho for beginner to intermediate mountain bike riders. Although my skill level would be considered advanced, I still had loads of fun on the trails. The trails are mostly hardpacked dirt, some vegetation covered trails (less ridden trails) and some very limited loose rock surface trails near the lake. If you like to ride singletrack that are long enough to allow you to get a good cadence, then these trails are perfect as many are long and flat, with some very slight climbs and downhill sections. All the trails are numbered and again, get a trail map at the entrance so you won't miss anything. Lots of flora and fauna along the trail. I saw lots of turkeys, deer, and mountain goats with some high powered binoculars while taking a snack break back at my rental truck. I rode the trails three days a week for three weeks and always left with a smile. My wife rode the trails two days only and wants to go back next time we are in the area. We also rode Priest Lake area trails and Route of the Hiawatha, but Farragut was our favorite for all out spinning. I'm gonna give Farragutr State Park 5 Stars just because I had more fun than I deserved and because I didn't get totally bonked after riding for seveal hours at a time.

Recommended Route:
Start at any trail head inside the state park and ride till you drop. Basically any type of mountain bike and skill level. I rode short knobbies, but most trails can be ridden with semi-slicks if you want a little speed.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All trails at Priest Lake. The rails to trail-Route of the Hiawatha is a historic ride which is not at all technical but is great for beautiful country and for railroad history buffs. You'll need a bike light before the Rangers will allow you on the trail because of the long railroad tunnerls.
