Ride Description:

I am heading out to Black Lake north of Council to camp and view the latter part of the Perseid Meteor Shower.   Quick description of the route.  Van Duesen Road north out of Emmett, Big Flat Road,  Indian Valley, 

Early lunch/late breakfast at Lakey's Cafe in Indian Valley.  Fuel up in Council or the store across from Lakey's if they have fuel.

Cottonwood Road, Mill Creek Road, Fruitvale, West Fork Weiser Road, Lick Creek Road,  Bear,  Cuprum, Horse Mountain Lookout, Kinney Point, Sheep Rock Viewpoint, Smith Mountain Lookout,  Black Lake.  Extremely scenic views if you haven't been there before.  Beautiful high mountain lake.   Bring a camera.   Bring something to eat for dinner at camp.

Mostly dirt route.  (of course)  Bring a warm sleeping bag as it's 7200 feet elevation and frost isn't out of the question that high. 



Sunday we will head back down to the Lick Creek road and cut over to Lost Valley Reservoir and out to Pine Ridge Restuarant for lunch.  A quick detour to New Meadows for fuel and back to Pine Ridge Resturarant to get on the dirt again.  Take Beaver Creek road to No Business Lookout and down past White Licks Hot Springs.  Mica Saddle,  Mill Creek Summit and down through Ola and Sweet.
