Went camping back there for 4 days in mid August. Water pump went out while I was back there. Was an interesting drive back.

Oooo, I'll play!

Idaho adventure up to Lolo Motorway/FS 500 from Kamiah, ID over to Powell, MT and then down to Conner, MT and across the Magruder Corridor/FS 468 to Elk City, ID and back to Boise, ID. Here is the route on google maps: http://goo.gl/maps/zacq4

This is probably one of the best guides about the Magruder Corridor: http://www.everytrail.com/guide/magruder-corridor-guide

Basic description of the trail:
"The Magruder Road Corridor extends 95 miles through a vast undeveloped area, offering solitude and pristine beauty, as well as expansive views of the Bitterroot and Clearwater Mountains.
The Magruder Road (Forest Road #468) is a single-lane mostly unimproved road which is rocky, steep and winding, with few turnouts for passing oncoming vehicles. The road is not recommended for low-clearance vehicles, motor homes, or vehicles towing trailers. The video in POI #35 (Hell's Half Acre Lookout Road #224) shows typical road conditions that you may expect. The road traverses a vast, remote, and rugged area. Travelers should take adequate provisions and make sure their vehicles are in good condition. Don't run out of gas!"

The beginning and camp:


Scenic views:


Overall, this trail had WAY too much hype. It was utterly beautiful and breathtaking. But it was nowhere near as hard as all the stories made it seem. I was very disappointed with it. The middle 14mi of it was a shelf road with fallen trees and lots of rocks. THAT part was great fun. But the rest of the 80+mi were very easy. So much so that people pulling trailers could make those parts. Lolo was harder and almost all 90mi of it were that level of hard.

Oh it is definitely beautiful! IF you start from the MT side, it is more spectacular since you basically drive up 2,000' to get to the ridgeline. I prefer to ascend than descend while driving since braking and shifting gears is more annoying to me. We checked with the ranger stations before we went. I suggest bringing a chainsaw if you go early in the season. :-)
