Hey Indyfabz

First, I'm bummed that we missed meeting in the office while you were in Missoula!

Second, I think you must have an older TransAm #4 map. Once the bike path was completed, we changed the route to do just as you suggest below:

The official AC route gets off the trail and crosses the river onto East Side Highway at Stevensville. No need for that. The East Side Highway is busy and has no real shoulder to speak of. Stay on the trail towards Hamilton.


There is also highway construction which impacts the trail in Rochester, between East Henrietta and Kendrick roads.  There is a posted detour.

We also received a cycling-specific detour suggested by a local cyclist. It is posted on Map 131 on the Northern Tier 10 addenda.


I snuck in a changed Melissa's original post. =)


I hope I'm in the office when/if you come by on Thursday. I am typically off by 3 so it could happen.


There is road construction occurring on US 2 over a 4 mile stretch from just east of Havre. For more information, see the Montana DOT interactive Travel Map:


Hi Brian,

As part of my tour this summer, I'll be riding from Sidney to Victoria, BC, then catching the ferry to Port Angeles, WA. I'm having a hard time finding a map for the Lochside Trail, anyone know where to find one?

I think these two resources include maps of that trail:

Hope this helps!


Thanks for the local intel! Appreciate you thought of posting your experience here.

You might check this site for snow pack information:

Hope this helps,

You might want to look at some of the routes we have mapped in that area. In particular, Northern Tier 9, Underground Railroad Pittsburgh Spur, Underground Railroad Detroit Alternate 1. See the Route Network page for more information:


The Madison-Milton bridge is now open. There is still construction underway for the next few weeks but detours are no longer required:


I don't think this is on any of the Adventure Cycling routes. Please correct me if I'm wrong. In that case, I'd like to get it on the appropriate addenda.

Over the years I have heard about small campgrounds for riders along the Pac Coastline, and I have also heard that they closed some of them down due to problems with the homeless.

From the Pacific Coast #4 addenda:

Some of the CA state parks have closed their hiker/biker sites due to vagrants. You can find a updated list of hiker/biker sites by searching "Activity/Facility" at this site:

Hope this helps.


Hi Bob,

I'm glad you were able to make the trip. Thanks for reporting back on your experience.
