Trail Overview

This route can only be taken from the months 05/16 - 10/14. The route is mostly gravel with some loose rock. The route climbs from 2800' to an elevation of 5000'. The first few miles from Johnson Creek are on a wide road, where you could run into a logging truck or piece of logging equipment. Getting by is not a problem. You eventually start climbing up a single-lane gravel road overlooking most of the valley below. The route is quite scenic with spots to stop for a picnic or just take pictures. One point in the route has a giant power tower overlooking the route. Bear, Deer, and even Moose have been seen while riding the trail. Eventually, you come to a T in the road, where a left turn will take you back into Superior and not far from your parking spot.

Muddy/Wet
Roads were damp wet and puddled in spots. Some small broken tree branches in the road, but nothing that is going to stop you. Rocks have slid done the step banks and are in the road at different places, but you just drive around them. Still snow showing off in the Bitterroot. Good first ride of the year.

Access Description

Vehicles can be parked at the Big Eddy Fishing Access just 1/2 mile on a paved road from the start or end of the route.
