Sweetgrass Butte

In June I did a fine 90-minute ride from Goat Creek Sno-Park (~3 miles East/down-valley from Mazama store) up Goat Creek to the top of Sweetgrass Butte -- fantastic place for a picnic lunch or star-gazing? -- then down over Banker Pass coming out the Chewuck valley to Winthrop. Tons of great roads to explore.

Lost River Road to Harts Pass and Slate Peak is mostly dirt road but depending on day of week might be heavy with tourist traffic, dusty no fun. Fantastic 360 views into the Pasayten Wilderness.

Yep slate is a good one. There is a road behind the Freestone that is cool lots of dense woods . The road splits off several times they all dead end. What I have done a hundred times is to go up the Goat creek road and make a big loop. You can connect to Yellow jacket or go to Winthrop or conconully. Lots of good scenery.

Wow thanks for all the great suggestions. I have been up harts pass before, from what I remember it has a lot of nice scenery. I might try the slate peak. Sounds interesting. Is there any of these rides that you guys are suggesting where you have seen a lot of Wildlife? I will be going in the middle of Bow season .

That's usually what I ride up there for, scouting. Just look for areas with h2o. The roads that branch off of the goats peak road go way backin a few places. I found some nice areas up on the way to Mcloud Mtn.
