Title: Idaho Hot Springs Summer 2016 -- stay in hotels / guest houses?
Post by: smm on November 07, 2016, 10:44:43 am
I in the initial stages of planning a summer ride around the Idaho Hot Springs route, starting and ending in Boise, probably counter clockwise.  I'll be on my full suspension mountain bike.   Camping sounds like the most fun option to me, but my partner wondered if we can minimize gear hauling by going from hotel to hotel.  Has anybody done that on this route?

I think it would be tough to stay indoors every night on this route. If you have the maps in hand, you can rough out your expected daily mileages and check for lodging options based on them.

Thanks.  We may try to cowboy camp with a couple of hotel/lodge stays, especially in the event of bad weather.  We do have the maps in hand, including the single track options which sound great!

If anybody has favorite hotels/lodges/guesthouses along the route, we'd be glad to hear about them.
