Check-Ins for this Challenge Point

 Nice cold sunny spring ride. From Nampa visited Map Rock, Doyle Cabin, Titan, and Bruneau.

 Had a nice day riding with KaptSlow.  In addition to visiting Doyle Cabin, we visited the Pershing 2 Missile site as well (not the Titan 1 site).  Following the site visits we rode some single track and very sandy washes.  Thanks KaptSlow for a fun day!

09APR2020 First Challenge Site of the year!

 

BillBart and I decided that riding little bikes in the middle of nowhere counted as "Social Distancing" so off we went.

 

We loaded his 530exc and my WR450F on a trailer and headed southeast toward Grandview. Once we found a suitable staging location, we took off — Bill leading and me following. The dirt two-track out to Doyle Cabin is very “GS-able,” but it was fun ripping it up on the little bikes. The cabin is north of the main trail behind a stand of trees. It’s easy to miss, so pay attention!

 

After that, we headed east to a Pershing missile launch facility - which was very cool. A mix of jeep roads and single track made this leg a lot of fun on the WR. It would have sucked on my 1200. The next planned stop was lunch along Birch Creek. We wandered around on single-track trails for an hour or so, ended up in some brutally whooped-out sand washes, but finally got back up on a ridgeline and found a lunch spot with awesome views to the north and east.

 

Working our way back to the truck & trailer from lunch, we found a marked BLM trial that parallelled a barbed wire fence line for about three miles. It was pretty much dead straight, but the elevation changes when we crossed numerous deep sand washes meant we had to keep our speeds reasonable. Again, not fun for a Big Bike.

 

Once we crossed Missle Base Road (there are dozens of “Missle Base Roads” out there and none of them connect to one another) BillBart decided we should take a sandy, whooped-out, single-track trail back to staging. It was only 2 miles. How bad could it be?  We ended up on the east side of a huge dune. The options were the dune-face or 3’ whoops in a deep sand wash. It looked like it was gonna suck a lot, but BillBart took off like a shot and I did my best to keep up. After one last sandy, bumpy hill climb, we made it to staging and got loaded and headed north.

 

After several miles of washboard gravel road (where my fork brace decided to abandon ship), we made it back to pavement and continued to Boise.

 

An excellent days ride and a cool Challenge location. Very doable on a big bike as long as you don’t wander too far on the numerous single-track trails in the area.

 We found two cabins and I wasnt shure on what one was really his.  No one was home so I think this is the place.

 I took the hard way in on this one one via two creeks and a nice sandy wash.

 This was a challenge site a few years ago and I went into the old cabin site then.. the trail from the road into the cabin was pretty deep and sandy then and I didn't want to get in there this time and drop the big bike I was on... so I took my pic out at the road... the last time I was in here, it had been raining steady for several days prior and the road was gooey muck and slick!... much nicer today on a dry road... always nice to get out for a late fall ride on a nice day...
