Level 3 rides will include rutted double track, and uneven roads. These may be rocky and difficult at times. A 1200GS or similar bike will feel heavy in this terrain, and will require an experienced rider. A moderate rider on a 650cc bike will be able to maintain 20 to 30 m.p.h. without a load. Little or no single track will be present on a level 3 ride. You may encounter moderate water crossings (less than knee high). Expect higher average speeds on easy sections of the route.

Trinity Lookout, Rocky Bar Loop

I wanted to get Trinity Mountain Lookout checked off my Challenge 2010 list.  steelhead needed 2 more sites for a bronze so we dediced to go for it.  We left Boise at 7 am. and travelled Black's Creek road to Prairie, over Meadow Creek road and up the Fall Creek road to the Trinity Mountain road.  The ride along the South Fork Boise River is always eye candy.

Ride Description:

Making a quick run to check off some Challenge Points.  My general route will be Boise, Prairie,Trinity Lookout, Rocky Bar, Featherville, Big Smokey, Indian Head Rock, Fairfield.  Then a deviated route to Little City of Rocks, Morman Reservoir, Mountain Home, and back to Boise.  This should collect 4 Challenge Points.  I set it as a Level 3 since getting to Trinity Lookout can be difficult and I don't know the snow conditions of that area.

Ride Description:

Since I was planning a ride through Challis for the same timeframe as what Ed has now posted for the Annual Club Ride, I decided to just leverage off this event and post a formal ride if anyone is interested in picking up a couple northern area sites on the way.  Yes it is out of the way, but does make a nice loop.  Based on who signs up and feedback, I can tweak the details a little but just wanted to get the general ride out there.

Anyway, the details as follows:  (note road numbers are from Benchmark maps)

Ride Description:

Edit 7/8/10: Thane and I are going to leave early and meet Ed out there at Willow Hot Springs. Thane and I are going to hit Jordan Craters and Three Forks (since Thane has yet to cross those 2 off his list) on the way you. We're therefore going to leave earlier than planned since we're the only 2 planning to leave from Nampa at this point. If you'd like to go, email me, and we'll work it out. Note the new departure time.
