Idaho Hot Springs Route traffic report July 2019
« on: July 30, 2019, 03:10:06 pm »
Just wanted to give a heads up based on my experience riding this route from Stanley to Crouch July 20-29, 2019.
The vehicle traffic, imo, was heavy.  We saw over 200 motor vehicles on FR579 over the weekend.  Road had washboards and was very dusty with all the traffic.  On Wednesday going over Lick Creek Summit (FR 412), I counted 86 vehicles on the unpaved portion.  On Saturday, FR 698 to Crouch was packed.  All campsites were full, any non-designated site was full, and the road had almost constant traffic.

I recommend avoiding this route in the height of summer vacation season, if you like getting away "from it all". :-\
