The suggested route covers approximately 350 miles of rail trails, country roads, gravel back roads, two-tracks and singletrack. The terrain is incredibly varied and beautiful starting in the rolling hills in the heart of potato growing country in eastern Idaho, forges through a sand dune/sage brush desert north of Saint Anthony, climbs over the 7684 foot high Bannock Pass in the beautiful Beaverhead Mountains and descends into the Bitterroot Valley and into Hamilton, Montana.
Riders are responsible for their own safety and navigation as well as providing everything they need during the ride including food, water, spare clothing and mechanical support. No overnight hotels or tents are provided - riders will need to bring their own sleep systems and be prepared to bivy along the route. There are some towns along the route that will have provisions, but much of the suggested route is in remote and/or rural areas of Idaho and Montana where there is little traffic or availability of assistance. Solid navigation skills will be required.
