How far would you say it is from Wallace? Delorme Topo is telling me it's almost two hours.

Spragpole

from wallace over dobson pass then beaver creek / delta murray rd im thinking is 27 miles or so, an hour should do it. Dobson is paved, then the portion from there is gravel.

The food and drink at the Spragpole aren't bad either!

Since I didn't get much in the way of pictures while down at the St. Joe last weekend I'll give you this link: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...404998&page=52 This was from a gathering down there a few years ago and there are a lot of pictures. If you spot something you want to see but where it is isn't identified let me know I can probably tell you how to find it.

A big YES on the Sprag Pole in Murray, it's a must see.

Looking at a few of the pages of pictures make me think we might just need to do another gathering down in that area next year.

I'd also like to visit Wallace and Kellogg for the history, but don't want to get there via interstate (guess I could take the frontage roads.) A planned loop ride would be nice, but not necessary....I don't mind back-tracking a bit so see the good stuff!

Thanks in advance for your help!
Kojanja, TheTourist and I are planning a trip to Glacier Park in mid Septober,,,,, TheTourist on,,, DR350 aka "the Girble, and I will be on and XL350 aka "lil Pig,,,,,,,,we will be leaving Moscow, mid day or so on the 16th of september. According to his route, it will take us to somewhere around Avery the first nite ,, and then on to Glacier the next day.... A couple of days in Glacier and then westward toward Yak,, and then thru the Kootenies,,,, and probably down around the Clark Fork area...
According to TheTourist,,, it will be gravel and secondary pavement ......
Nothing fast,,,, just some good riding,, beautiful country and alot of stop and goes for pics... lol
Leaving Avery,,,, it looks like we will be running over Moon Pass ,,, towards Thompson Falls,,,, and then north... but some of which is to be determined,,,,,, I am leaving the map reading to "bro",,,, TheTourist,,,, lol

Have a great ride....you'll really enjoy Glacier! I'm leaving Sept 16th from Warm Lake...back roads through Warren to Riggins for the night, then up to St. Maries. I'll be running the loop ride that IdahoRenagade posted earlier..... probably with a few side excursions.
