Kathy (and all other interested in this route!),
I just heard from Kathy and Roger Cox who orignally did this trip. Here is the information they sent me. I hope it helps you to plan your trip. It would be great to get a trip report from you if you do it.QuoteHere is the route description of our 800 mile Salmon Basin mountain bike tour loop we did in August 2001:
We left our vehicle in Salmon ID at a commercial campground, rode south a few miles on Hwy 93, took FR21 up Williams Cr, down Panther Cr.* on FR55 to the Salmon River where we crossed it. Headed upstream on FR30, past Shoup, then a steep climb up Spring Creek FR38 to the ridge and Montana line. Continued NW along ridge on FR44* and down the West Fork of the Bitterroot on FR91 past Painted Rocks Reservoir. If you want to resupply near Conner, you can continue downhill, otherwise, we turned west and headed back towards Idaho and Nez Perce Pass on FR468.
We continued west across Idaho on the Magruder Corridor (FR468) with the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness to the north and the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness to the south. This is a beautiful, rugged, remote area, and expect to see maybe only 20 vehicles each day as you travel. When we reached the ranger station at Red River, we detoured up FR234 for some soaking and restaurant food at Red River Hot Springs*. Inquire locally to make sure it is open. Back at the ranger station, we continued west on FR22 until it joined ID SR14, where we rode west on pavement toward Grangeville. Just before Grangeville, we took the Mt Idaho Grade Rd into town, for resupply.
Our original plan was to take FR221 south from Grangeville all the way to Riggins, but we were forced off it and detoured down Slate Creek to Hwy95 because of forest fire activity. After Riggins, we went east along the main Salmon River, turning south up the Seven Fingers Rd, FR 246, bound for Burgdorf Hot Springs*, and on to McCall. From McCall we took the Lick Creek Rd to the S. Fork of the Salmon, and then headed upstream on FR674/FR474* to Warm Lake (store, restaurants). We continued east on FR579 (Deadwood River, Deer Creek, Elk Creek, Fir Creek) to Cape Horn Pass, where the road changes to FR198 before joining ID SR21 into Stanley*. When we got to Stanley, we were running out of time, so we took paved ID SR75 to Challis* and then Hwy 93 back to Salmon. (We had hoped to ride the dirt from Sunbeam to Challis on FR70, the Custer Motorway, and did this section in the summer of 2009 as part of a more recent trip.) North of Challis, the Morgan Creek and Panther Creek roads would keep you off of Hwy93.
*The asterisks note a hot springs nearby that we soaked in, some commercial, some wild ones on forest land, check a hot springs guidebook or ask locals – half the fun is discovering these for yourself. To plan this trip we used Nat. Forest maps and the DeLorme Gazeteer for ID and MT. We encourage other cyclists to try this route or some variation, we found this ride to be truly memorable!
