 “Festival goers will take an adventurous dual-sport journey and experience the remoteness and beauty of the state of Idaho that can only be discovered on the Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route.” -Diane Norton, Idaho Tourism Manager

The IDBDR documentary provides an in-depth look into the creation and first expedition of the IDBDR, a scenic ride across the state of Idaho, beginning in Jarbidge, NV and finishing at the Canadian border.  The route has been created by the Backcountry Discovery Routes non-profit organization specifically for dual-sport and adventure motorcyclists who are interested in exploring Idaho’s remote backcountry.   This 1,300-mile south-to-north route utilizes mainly dirt roads and leads riders across mountain ranges to isolated lookout towers, natural hot springs, old west mining towns, historic cemeteries, and the infamous Magruder Corridor and Lolo Motoway.

Visit the IDBDR Film Page on the Festival’s website for more information.

The IDBDR project is presented by the Idaho Department of Commerce – Tourism Development, and Big Twin Motorcycles.
