Meet at Bunco Parking lot at 9 am. Depart at 9:15.
Bunco Road at the Silverwood exit as of 8-30 is closed but the detour signs are not always visible. If coming North on US 95 continue past Bunco Rd. exit (Silverwood) to Park Rd the next exit. Go east on Park road to the T, turn Right (S) on Good Hope Road for 3/4 of a mile to stop sign which is Bunco road, turn east to parking lot. If coming South on US 95 take Athol exit and go east to the round about and turn South on Good Hope road to stop sign and east to Bunco parking lot.
Lyle Phipps will be co-leader with me.
Ride will be about 60 miles and take about 5 hours. Should not need extra gas but Gold Creek Lodge has it for about $7.00 per gallon.
On the first part of the trip, plan to visit gold mines. Can only look from outside. Part of the route is not heavily traveled. If it has been dry, could be dusty. Plan to have lunch at Gold Creek Resort. They have a nice menu and picnic tables if you want to brown bag it. Rest rooms are available at Gold Creek, Lakeside and Whiskey Rock campground.
Ride is UTV friendly with a 50 inch limit on one stretch, trail 414. Can take an alternate route if too wide. We can take Road 1050 to or from Whiskey rock. It climbs up the mountain and there are some great photo ops. of Lake Pend Oreille.
In case of rain be sure to bring rain gear. We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy the ride. Safety is our number one concern.
