The Game Plan

July 11th & 12th: Dan Huber (MapMaker) will be leading an overnight rough road tour which will head up to Lolo Pass (Hwy 12) and then onto the Lolo Motorway (Lewis &Clark Trail) all the way down to Kamiah, ID. From there, you head on over to Elk City, ID to spend the night. We’re still looking for a place to rent (cabins, lodge, etc.) and we also want to have tent camping available to any real Adventure riders. Next day will be spent running the "Magruder Corridor", which runs between the Frank Church and Selway-Bitteroot Wilderness. Once you hit Darby, you can either run north up the Bitteroot Valley (Hwy 93) back to Missoula, or take a 'scenic route' out to the east and up to Missoula.


July 13th & 14th: Brian Rossmann (Brian0003) has some suggested a number of fantastic pavement day-rides located in northwestern Montana and the Idaho panhandle (see links below). These include the renowned Lolo Pass (Hwy 12) which runs between the Clearwater and Nez Pearce National Forests along the banks of the Lochsa River; this road boasts over 80 miles of curves and heart-stopping mountain scenery! Another choice is a route up to Glacier National Park, where you can ride the famous Going To The Sun Road. There's also another route which snakes through a number of National Forests, including the Flathead, Lolo, and Beaverhead-Deerlodge.
