This is a big-bike friendly 23 mile route that offers some stunning scenery, fun riding, isn’t far from home, doesn’t take long and can be used to access other routes. Whats not to like?
It’s an easy route and will work for beginners. That said, watch out for loose rock on the numerous up and downhill hairpins. Also, there is small rutted section around 5-10 minutes into the descent to Lake Kachess. They are not huge ruts – just make sure to look where you want to go and not at the ruts.
The route ends at NF-49, a paved road. From here you can check out the dead-end road to Hibox peak, head back to 90 or continue on to Stampede Pass on the south side of the freeway.
