Up Next is the Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route

May 13th, 2014

The crew at Backcountry Discovery Routes is at it again. We are currently working on our fifth BDR, a south-to-north route across the state of Idaho that will be the longest BDR to date.

The final route will be well over 1,000 miles of mostly non-paved track.  The route will begin in the old western town of Jarbidge Nevada and then meander through the west side of the Idaho Rocky Mountains on the way to the Canadian Border at the Idaho Panhandle.

Two stunning and historic backroads will be part of the IDBDR - the Magruder Corridor and the Lolo Motorway.  Several small mountain towns in Idaho are visited along the way including Yellow Pine, Burgdorf Hot Springs, Elk City, Avery, Wallace, and Clark Fork.

Because of the remote track and length of the route, hotels and inns are spread out making backwoods camping the best option for lodging.

We still have a lot of work to do, but we are confident that the Idaho BDR will be one of the most scenic and fun BDR's to ride so far.

The release of the IDBDR movie, Butler Map and free GPS tracks is scheduled for January 2015.
