Ride Description:


This ride will take in eleven challenge sites.

  • Grand Jean
  • Hindman Lake
  • Water Crossing
  • Black Rock Mine
  • Barney Hot Springs
  • Charcoal Kilns
  • Leadore
  • Bannack City
  • Red Rock Lakes
  • Mesa Falls
  • Craters of the Moon

We'll be leaving around 1 PM on Wednesday August 10 and will likely camp at or near Hindman Lake.    Thursday night we'll probably camp near Barney Hot Springs.  Friday night camp will be near Mesa Falls.  If everything goes well, we'll be back in Boise Saturday evening otherwise, we'll get back on Sunday.  I have a preliminary route plotted and will post it when I get it refined.  There will likely be some Interstate miles involved.  The longest gas leg will be about 140 miles, but for the most part, gas will be readily available.  There will be opportunities to get meals along the way, it just depends on timing.  I'd recommend bringing something along in case it's needed.

It looks like this is going to be some very long days.  I plan to be on the road by 6:30 AM each morning.  Even at that, we won't get to camp until 9PM.  We'll need to be moving at a quick pace on the road.
