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.

This day ride will be an opportunity to visit two of this year's Challenge Sites - #34 Jump Creek Falls and #1 South Mountain LO.  We will meet at 7:15 AM (Rockies Diner on Overland) for those who want breakfast before we start, and we will be underway by 8:00 AM.  After visiting these two sites, we will return to Boise via Silver City and Murphy, then cross the Swan Falls Dam and come across the National Guard Training Site to Pleasant Valley Road.  One section descending into the Snake River Canyon at the Swan Falls Dam is a level 3 (rocky and fairly steep).  The rest

Ride Description:

 If you have not made it to this challange site come join me. Small bikes encouraged. We will be taking the scenic route to avoid the freeway as much as possible. Taking HWY 30 to 52 then 201 there will be some freeway but in Oregon its only 65.  I only ride a little 350 so 65mph is about tops. Pack a Lunch and some hiking boots in case the gate is closed.

Ride Description:

Had a great time last weekend, looking to keep it going. Leaving Emmett 10am Friday, dirt to New Meadows, highway to Riggins then down into Kirkwood Ranch to check out the museam. Plan to find a campsite enroute, if nothing looks good head to Hammer creek.  Return Saturday morning and cut over to Clear creek and up to East Mountain lookout.

Thats my rough plan, not on much of a schedule so might do some exploring.
