Route help for west then north of Boise area

Greetings Boise riders,
I am looking for some route advise. The area in question would be to the east of of Boise and then north. Here are a few spots that look sweet. Southern Butte (the road to the top does not show on map but on google earth?) I would like to see some of the volcano fields also seems like Anthony dunes would be of interest to a northern ID guy? From there I will be going north to Saw tell peak,and then the centennial valley east to the magruder. So the route in question is from Boise to Anthony dunes? Hoping the weather is cooler but I am thinking some fast desert roads some over-look buttes and some craters of the moon stuff. Can you help me? I solo on a DR-650...would be camping...here are some examples of how i roll.

ok, here's a suggestion: your choice of routes to Featherville, once there, follow South Fork Boise river up to Dollarhide summit into Sun Valley, then Trail Creek summit over to hiway 93. then South on 93 to Pass Creek Rd coming out on Little Lost River Hiway, then South to Howe Idaho. (If you want the lava fields/Big Southern Butte, head South at Sun Valley and go out through Carey and Craters of the Moon and to Arco)... Then take hiway 33 and 22 East to Dubois. Then East on the Kilgore/Yale rd to Red Rd and this will take you South to the Sand Dunes. Once done there, Head back to the Kilgore/Yale Rd to the Camas Battle Field. After the Battle field, stay on the Kilgore/Yale rd East to hiway 20... then North on Hiway 20 to Sawtell Rd...

When you head home, go North on 20 to the Red Rock Lakes Rd, take it West over to I-15, then North to
Montana 278 to Bannack, then take the Bannack Bench rd South to 324, head West to Lemhi Pass rd and go over Lemhi/Lewis and Clark Pass to Hiway 28 near Tendoy. Head South on 28 a few miles South of Gilmore to FS road 296 or Spring Mountain Road, take this road over the top of the mountains West over to Pahsimeroi Rd, from there, take the Pahsimeroi Rd North to Double Springs Pass rd, head West on DSP rd to hiway 93... from there, any way home is a good one... this route will get you to some of the best Mountains and riding in Idaho... enjoy.

Sam; you and Ryan have been the instigators/inspiration for many of those routes... we owe you both...

it's a battle field from the Nez Perce war... it's along the Kilgore road East of the Red Road junction a few miles... you'll see some Indians on horseback in attack mode on the small ridge to the south... (full size metal sillouettes)... along with an info center kiosk and parking lot...

Big Southern Butte LO definately worth a visit, on a clear day, you'll be able to see 70 to 90 miles in every direction... and it's an IAMC challenge site this year... whether the road is open to the top will be anyones guess... usually better chance if getting open gates to lookouts on weekdays, they tend to lock them up on weekends... not sure why, maybe to stop being overrun on weekends??

Awesome route X2!
The only part I have missed is Spring Mtn. (Windy Pass), I have been up the west side but stopped by snow.

How does the east side compare?
