    Sunday 10-10:30ish Zips in St.Maries work fine for me and I'll take the dirty route to Avery.

    Just called the Shoshone county sheriff's and asked about the Gold creek pass...he laughed and said there's a lot of snow up high still.

    @PNW Buttercup Which way are you planning on going to St. Maries? via Worley or via Harrison?

    I’ll most likely take the smooth side to Avery.

    Sounds like a plan!

    I'll be rolling through Worley. Nice thing about this ride is the routes are optional and the destination is the same!

    I need to wear the sides of my tires a bit more so I will take the Harrison way and meet up with the group in St. Maries at 10am.

    There is really only 1 way to know for sure, let's just see how far we can get. There is still a lot of snow up there, I have been surprised by how much snow I am still seeing at elevation, so I would be surprised if it is actually open. All of the trail reports I have been getting from the St.Joe area are showing a lot of snow still remains.

    Quoting my 5/9/20 post for reference only. I speculate that you cannot yet make it to the summit. Very soon, though. I keep running up there and simply turn around when I hit snow in the road. I rarely continue on the gravely Montana side to St. Regis, anyways. Much more fun back-tracking the St. Joe River Road back home!

    If you guys & gals head over, be aware there are many, many fallen rocks scattered in the road and some rough pavement in sections from the harsh winter. Still easy to maintain 50-60 mph if you will. :rayof

    Some rocks are bowling ball size, but are easily avoidable if you’re focused. If you turn down towards St Ives ranger station, there’s a rock slide blocking half the road (easily passable). It’s all fun!

    I would like to get a rear shock re-sprung and re-valved. Is there a go-to in the Spokane/Coeur-d'Alene area?
