    I talked to a couple riders from IF who had just crossed and said it was open. They went on to say it has been worked on and that a Prius could cross. It is too easy. They were on KLR 650s. Part of the fun in the past were the challenges...it was an adventure.

    I plan to ride it again soon to see. I think there are many other roads in Idaho that are just as pretty, better camping and fewer people.

    This route has become so popular, like an adventure rider pilgrimage. I guess if many riders flock to ride the Magruder, then fewer riders on the good stuff.

    Much better and it will become the preferred route from Lewiston to Salmon ;)
