    I'm finishing an off-road route from Ca up through Ontario, Idaho. I need 85 miles of graded dirt roads from Ontario heading towards Rigby to complete this task. Can anyone here provide local info or ideas?

    Dualsportmaps.com has some stuff that may interest you. Click the search button and then draw a box around that part of Idaho to see them.

    Did you ever finish this route? I'm looking at riding the same area on my way from the Bay Area to South Dakota. Seems tough to find dirt going west to East in Idaho.... What did you find?

    Have you looked at my Statewide Motorized Trail System for NV & ID on GpsXchange.com

    Im new to this, and I have not seen your stuff on GpsXchange, but I'll have a look and ask better questions in a week or two.

    Thanks.

    Hey Pointman, I would definitely like to have a look at your route. We were planning to start the dirt at Reno and head toward Gerlach, then NE. Looks like Grandview would be about perfect.

    I'll send you a message with my email address. I'm actually sailing g.in Mexico for the next two.weeks or so, but when I get home, I can look.

    Do you remember how many miles it is, and maybe how many days you think you could ride it, if you were trying...?
