End of year ride 2022

April 18th, 2022

The final ride for this season, the S & M ride is April 30th. Meet at the shelter around 11am,  leave the unloading location by  10am. Hope to see you there it’ll be a blast.

Depending on the snowmelt, unloading could be an issue depending how far we can drive up the road. (looks like the pipes is the best place to park.)

KEELER CHANGES

November 5th, 2018

Keeler Trail Changes: The USFS IPNF, has removed the gate and placed 3 foot boulders where the gate was on the Keeler Trail just past the saddle (in Idaho) Use the bypass located just before the gate area till we have 5 ft. of snow . Beyond the gate, the USFS has attempted to return the terrain to a natural state.

Caution: as a result, obstacles have been inserted into what was a road. use caution when trying to navigate this area. It’s best to use a workaround on the up hill side when snow conditions are not sufficient to adequately cover these boulders…
