Hayden Lake, with its crystal clear waters, sandy beaches and picturesque timber shores, is one of the most beautiful and popular lakes in the state of Idaho, in the Pacific Northwest United States. The lake is surrounded on three sides by panoramic timbered mountains, which rise to an elevation of nearly 6,000 feet and extend for many miles to the east as part of the Bitterroot Mountain Range. Much of this land is the Coeur d’Alene National Forest, which offers excellent hunting, fishing, and mountain bike riding.
This 25 mile ride will take you clockwise around the lake and have ~2000 feet of climbing bringing you right back to where you start. This rolling terrain will make for a great interval workout. It was filmed on a typical overcast Sunday morning with very little traffic.
