    Back to tarmac. Any knee-draggers out there? Hayden Lake Loop. Quite possibly the best little secret in the PNW. With over 150 corners in 13 twisty miles, perfect pavement, stunning scenery, and 5 minutes from my house, you better believe I ride this baby early and often! I’d stack this little 45 minute slice of heaven up against any road in the USA for fun per mile.

    Overlooking the 5-Star resort hamlet of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho stands the prominent peak of West Canfield Butte (aka Canfield Mountain) towering over the flat, silted valley below. Remnants of the cataclysmic flood 12,000 years ago of Lake Missoula as the ice dam gave way from the retreating ice shelf from the last major ice age. But this little path is literally a portal that opens up to thousands of miles of forest service roads, two-track, single-track and more. Check out all the routes I have planned on Gaia GPS below, and this is just scratching the surface!!!

    Schweitzer Mountain plays host year-round to adventurers of all varieties. Skiing, downhill MTB, craft brews and cideries, summer concerts, or just a quick run up for a top-notch dinner with your BAE just to name a few. Add this one to your list for sure!

    Back to stump-jumping. Well not that challenging. I'm still a dirt newbie. But the Forest Service Roads of Chilco, Buckles Mountain, and Bernard Overlook make for some great vistas! Bring your camera (or drone even better!), but be on the lookout for moose and other apex predators!

    I just noticed that no more than one GPX track can be uploaded at a time. There are 3 more for Chilco, Buckles Mtn, and Bernard Overlook. Let's make sure you get the whole suite!

    When you share a namesake with a mountain, well of course you've gotta summit it, right? Check out my ride up Monument Mountain and John Peak last summer. Wait until you watch me come face-to-face with a MOOSE COW AND HER CALF! And my drone footage from the top of Monument Mountain coming soon in the teaser and full episode!

    I arrived just after sunset, so I can't wait to get back to Mount Baker. This is a photographer's dream.

    Perched on the banks of the 5th deepest lake in the USA, Lake Pend Oreille, above the quaint hamlet of Bayview, Idaho, sits a monolith called Cape Horn Peak. Let's ride it!
