Is this a map of Montana and what is the BLACK mapbook? Can I get one in Idaho? Thanks again for the great report.
Sorry its on pg 45 of the Benchmark brand map book of Montana. They have a black cover and has the whole state broke down into page sections, very handy on a bike, i don't travel without one and a gps. The rd is Forest Service #7160 called Vermillion creek. Cool place with your own Huck Finn style floating dock.
Cheers TB

Glad you liked the little write up, can't wait for our next adventure in California. We will have to review some maps this weekend while we are shredding some snow ADV style. I pulled a huge wheelie on my Mountian Cat in the front yard today, kinda surprised me! Lets Ride!!

Nice Indian Paintbrush. The ride up to Hat Point is always a good ride.

Thumb Great report!

Thanks for sharing your adventures TB! I enjoyed all of your photos and the tales from the trail.

I hope to explore that area myself in the not too distant future. Lolo looks like fun!

Glad to see this. I've added Sylvan to my route on the way to Troy in July.

Yes Hat Point was a memorable ride after doing the dug bar ride the afternoon before that. That pic was my screensaver for a season!

That would be a good stop on the way to Troy, there was plenty of firewood there last season. And it was deserted! Enjoy!

Great report and photos!
I have tramped around those parts of ID on motorcycles and riding stock (horses and mules) starting back in the seventies. I miss the big game (wolf kill) and the blue skies/fresh air because of the long fire season, so I have missed going over there the past two years.
I hold out some hope that I will go over next year before the fires start.

Gotta get over there

You gotta go back over there, no other place like it. The fires the last two years have really screwed the riding somewhat, but you always have great options! I love Idaho, probably one of my favorite places to ride overall.
Cheers TB
