2nd stop on our overnighter out in the Owyhee/Jordan Valley/Silver City area. Easy trek to Cabin via gravel road off of MudFlat road. Took small two track across range, heading southwesterly, to reconnect to MudFlat road

This was a beautify spot, hidden away. I came up from the south, so it was just a level 2.

Got this one today with my friend Phillip, who rides a Kawi Z125 (looks like a Honda Grom…..and he still has the stock street tires on it!! Rode all this gravel, plus a very wet and watery sand wash, like a champ!!). 2 up until the little spur road with the water crossing that leads to the front yard of the place…then 3. There’s also a geo-cache box in the rocks behind and above the cabin. Interesting collection of stuff including someone’s beard wax.

What a cool place. I was just imagining what it must have been like when cabin was in great shape and that giant tree next to it was still standing. It must have been quite the nice oasis in the middle of the desert

Nice ride. Interesting. Park before you get to the creek (east) and walk in.

Nice ride past Shoo fly in. If you expand the picture you can see the cabin in the background. There was a vary vocal murder cow guarding the place. As I was alone I honored the warning and got no closer. Rode the Oreana cut road north out of there. Pretty good shape

Doyle’s Place Cabin has been the most challenging site I have hit so far this year. You can approach it from two different ways, depending on your desired difficulty. Coming in from the north is solid into level 3 territory, but you can also come in from the south which is a level 2 except for the last 100 yards or so. I did both on my 1200GS which is about the limit for what I’m going to try on the larger bike.

To come in from the North take 78 and get off at Oreana Loop Rd. Follow that around for about 7.5 miles and then head south when it T’s at Castle Creek Road. About a half mile from there is track that will take you all the way there. You will need to go through a couple of gates. If following my GPX file be sure to be zoomed out far enough to know when we took a couple of wrong turns and had to back track. We did plenty of that on this ride. From there it’s about 12 miles of gradually increasing difficulty right up until the end. The last 3 miles are the hardest with uneven roads, large gravel, patches of sand, rocky terrain, etc.

Once you get to Doyle Place Cabin park at the top of the hill and walk down to know what you are getting into. This is what our group did, it’s about 50 or so yards at the end. There is a small creek you need to cross, but I wouldn’t advise trying to get a bike through unless you are braver than I am.

When leaving we went East which took us to Poison Creek Cutoff. For folks wanting a bit easier route I would suggest coming in from this direction. The road from the direction was much easier, with only a few minor washouts. I would rate it a heavy 2.

Say hi to the cows on the way out. They are very friendly.

From there we headed over to Shoo Fly thinking about cheeseburgers.

EDIT: Look in my replies for the GPX file.
