There we a lot of flies, but strangely enough… there was also a lot of bunny bits.

Easy ride from Grand View to the cemetary via Mud Flat Rd. Paved all the way. Ran into some extra powerful pivots drenching the road and washing off the bugs on my bike. 🙂 Easy 1 difficulty.

I rode down Poison Creek cut-off and out to Doyle‘s Place cabin and then down to mud flat Road and to shoofly cemetery. Mud flat Road is paved to the cemetery so I’m reading it a one. I stopped at the little store in Grand View and got a Klondike bar to round out a fun day in the Owyhees.

Pretty good paved road. The Oolite trail just west of the cemetery is a nice short hike.

From Doyle Place Cabin we continued on to Shoo Fly. This is a solid 1 the entire way except for the last 20 yards where it’s fairly sandy. You can walk the last little bit, so I’m ranking it a 1.
