My 2013 Tour of Idaho

Here is the gpx file of my proposed route (south to north) for the Idaho guys to have a look at. Let me know if this looks doable for large dual-sports. Looking for gas stops along the way, in the more remote areas as well.

Thanks



This is not to be confused with the "Tour of Idaho Challenge". This is my own route put together for a big dualsport trip, and as yet untested.

Great plan.

A few suggestions. At Henrys lake ride up 87 to the ID-MT border and ride the divide to red rock pass. This is a beautiful stretch of the divide. And when you ride by the red rock lakes, go on the south side. The north side has miserable sand dunes. Like riding through 2 feet of flour.

Not necessary but if you want more back roads in MT you can cut from painted rocks lake to the nez perce road, as a slower but shorter route. Later you could look at cutting accross Dorshack resevoir at Dent or Grandad bridges. Also you can turn east at the town of Clarkia and ride over freezeout and eventually come out at Avery. Different options.

Can provide more details if interested.

Have fun!

Any Grizzly's along that route? 2 years ago I could've sworn I saw a Brown Bear, but it wasn't very big...Up by Stanley

No, and I am not familiar with that. This is just a route that I put together using the dual sport maps site, trying to minimize pavement and civilization and still be do-able for a loaded up dual sport bike.

Alt route

This path would be a more scenic way past the lake.

Here you go

This should work for you.

Edit: Could have sworn Countdown asked someone to convert this to a track.

OK, I took all the routes I have for Idaho and made this first cut at a Statewide Motorizes trail System for Idaho.

I still have active logs to give it more resolution in the Hwy 12 to Wallace area.

Lycan1, it looks like perhaps 20-25 percent of the route is in Montana. Idaho and Montana are quite different.

Yes I realize that, but I am doing this from the south to the north and I had to call it something. It was just an unfortunate coincidence that it was labeled like the big off-road ride that is called "tour of Idaho". I had never heard of that before. For me this will be a tour of Idaho. The only reason that I will be in Montana is that I am doing the CDT from Canada down to Yellowstone first, then heading back up through Idaho. I am really looking forward to that, since last year was the first time I had ridden Idaho, but we stuck to pavement trying to skirt around snowstorms in May (on bikes) heading to Moab.

Lycan1 - any more progress on the route? Have your ridden it yet? Hoping to get up in that area soon. Will be on DR-650's loaded with gear. Would love to do the T1 (tour of idaho) but it sounds like our bikes are too big and heavy for a few sections of that route. I have seen the T3 from the website and may just try to do that instead. If you have insights on any of this please let me know
thanks, Tim

We finished our trip a few weeks ago now. Idaho was great and I will post the Idaho parts asap. See the ride report here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=906927
