Idaho Section 1

The track that comes across from Montana is not included, but came across the Lewis and Clark trail over Lemhi Pass which I strongly recommend. West of North Fork and north of Shoup the route climbs steeply with lots of switchbacks, and goes through a burned out section(s) of forest. Absolutely beautiful, and passes along sections of the Magruder corridor. There is one long climb that is rutted and rocky, but a decent rider on a big bike should manage well. Be sure to fuel up in North Fork or Shoup as it is a fairly long track with no services along its length.

Idaho Section 2

This track did cross back into Montana briefly by Painted Rocks Lake, and could be modified to stay on the Idaho side if you wanted. It hits pavement around the lake, then gravels-out as you head west again. There is a isolated section of pavement, seemingly in the middle of nowhere that takes you up over the pass and Frank Church Wilderness viewpoint. The turns to gravel again shortly after (west) of the pass. It is a nice twisty and entertaining section of forgotten pavement that sees little traffic.

Idaho Trip Section 3

This is the third section of the route through Idaho. An easy section with a mix of pavement (60%) and gravel (40%) but don't let that dissuade you, as the pavement leaving Orofino is a absolute delight and must have been engineered by a motorcyclist! Then Three Bear Creek road is a nice easy but scenic run on gravel. Pay attention as there are lots of places to get off track at "Ys" in the road, before it connects to highway 8. A quick run up highway 3 to the town of Santa and a short but sweet treat on Bigalow Mill road, that cuts off the corner of highway 3 and 6. I came across this by accident on Google maps and figured I'd try it, and was rewarded with a great and scenic little detour.

Idaho Trip Section 4

The forth section of the Idaho trip. Starts out from St. Maries up St. Joe River road, then turns up Baldy Mountain road, another entertaining and pretty track. I manged to take a wrong turn and forgot to edit it out so look at the track on Baldy Mountain road and edit out the little back track to the right. At Cataldo the track joins the freeway for 1 exit before stopping for fuel and heading up Coeur D' Alene River road then over to "Old River road" and onto NF-209.

Idaho Trip Section 5

The fifth and favorite section of the Idaho trip. There is one short section that was a challenge due to its over-growth and narrowness and steepness, but in truth the most entertaining. A good rider on a large bike should have no real problems, but see the you tube video Idaho Crazy Take 2 before you decide. There is a go around to the west on an easy main road that joins where we come off that little gem.

Idaho Trip last section (6)

This section starts just south of Sandpoint at the RV park that we settled for after the other campsite was full. It goes up past Priest lake and into Washington. There was one section of trail that said "closed for repairs" west of Sandpoint which we ignored (there were no barricades) and it was the best section of that road (as in most interesting) and would be a challenge only for a novice rider.

Thanks for sharing your tracks.

Went thru Lemhi 2 years ago, sat at the rest area and had lunch and when i left i got to the top off the hill at the intersection it was clearly apparent there was a forest fire nearby. Clear skies on one side and choking smoke on the other, i hightailed it to the pavement after that.

Glad the backside of the lake suggestion worked out for you. That shortcut hill I had routed in was an accident. Just tried to draw on basecamp where I've ridden. When I ride thru there on dirt bikes I'm not sure which option I take actually.

Oh believe me, it was fun, but I had a windshield to duck behind (and had my face-shield closed). On a dirt bike it could have been painful.
