And to be clear I don't mean it would be difficult, I mean it would be a dangerous, wet, cold snow shoe hike for miles and miles. The danger part is from an unstable snow pack (snow that is moving and sliding as it melts) , isothermic snow pack that is bottomless (even with snow shoes you would sink to your waist). As the snow continues to melt the creeks and rivers are running deep and they too are dangerous. That also means that many of the hot springs are underwater and inaccessible.
Northern Route (going westbound)
Exit I-90 at Regis, MT. Go east on Hwy. 135 to Hwy. 200. Go north to Thompson Falls. Turn west onto MT Secondary Hwy. 471 to Thompson Pass. Continue over the pass into Idaho passing through Murray, Prichard, Enaville and Kingston. Rejoin I-90 at Exit 43. The road is paved all the way, very scenic and frequently used by cyclists.
Southern Route (going westbound)
Note: There is no viable southern option for road cyclists.
However, if bicycles are set up for gravel, i.e., a mountain bike or a bike with at least 700x32c tires; there is a much shorter detour—only 11.5 miles. It is the NorPac Trail. Details can be found at http://friendsofcdatrails.org/maps/for_all/09_NorPac_Trail.pdf
Going westbound the trail starts at the Lookout Pass Ski Area on I-90.
The U.S. Marine Corps is planning to close the Camp Pendleton Bike Path—the only bike access between Las Pulgas Rd. and Basilone Rd. along Interstate 5 (I-5)— for military operations between this Monday, Jan. 25 and Friday, Jan. 29, 2016. Under normal bike path closure circumstances Caltrans would open the freeway shoulders in this segment to bicyclists, however there is a construction project that has closed the shoulders of I-5 in that segment. Caltrans will provide a 24/7 on-call shuttle for bicyclists to pass through the closures in the I-5 corridor between Oceanside and San Clemente. The phone number for the shuttle is (619)385-3267. There will be pick-up locations at the Las Pulgas Rd. parking lot for northbound cyclists, and at the south end of the Old Hwy. 101 bike path at Basilone Rd. for southbound cyclists. Those locations will serve as drop-off locations for the opposing directions of travel. Signs at both locations will include the shuttle phone number. Please share this information and make your plans accordingly. We apologize for any inconveniences in advance.
Greetings Bicycling Community --
...Many of you may be aware that a FULL closure of southbound (SB) Camino del Mar (aka Hwy. 101/SR 21) is in effect in the City of Del Mar between Del Mar Heights Rd. and Carmel Valley Rd. This closure is expected for 1-2 months. Northbound traffic is still allowed in this segment, including bicyclists-- of course. A detour has been established for SB vehicles-- SB Camino del Mar to eastbound (EB) Del Mar Heights Rd./4th St. to I-5 SB to westbound (WB) Carmel Valley Rd. and then back to SB Camino del Mar (Hwy. 101).
There are several options for bicyclists to detour around the closure. One that has been established for bicyclists is the shortest route which follows 4th St./ Del Mar Heights Rd eastbound to Mango Dr./ Portofino Dr. and then to WB Carmel Valley Rd. to Camino del Mar. Extreme grades are present along that detour. There are other routes available including EB Via de la Valle to SB El Camino Real to WB Carmel Valley Rd.-- a route that includes less intense grades than the proposed detour, but may not include dedicated bike lanes in all segments. Vigilance by all cyclists is advised in all cases. It should be noted that wrong-way driving on a bicycle is dangerous and against the California Vehicle Code. Detours should be followed and all cyclists should adhere to California Code.
