Ride Description:

Friday, September 11, 2020 - 9:00 a.m.

This ride will go to the top of two peaks north of Idaho City.  I've been to the top of Pilot Peak - the hard way.  This will be coming in from Highway 21.  We'll then come back down and go up the other side to Sunset Mountain Lookout, which I've never been to.

I was planning to ride up Highway 21 to the roads heading to those two peaks, but I'm flexible for routes coming back.  I'm sure we could find an interesting route over the mountain into Boise.  I'll be on my XR650L, but this should be appropriate of an adventure bike if you're an experience rider.  I wouldn't hesitate to do it on my KTM 790R, but I need to ride the XR once in a while.

Send me a note if you want to go.

Here's a map of the two roads:,+Idaho+83622/43.8983811,-115.6470722/@43.9059833,-115.7048281,12.75z/data=!4m9!4m8!1m5!1m1!1s0x54af2c5285036ed5:0x3e1095b557cbcf57!2m2!1d-115.6870518!2d43.9604515!1m0!3e0
