Camps will include instruction on packing your bikes, backcountry camping, Leave No Trace principles, trip planning, navigating, route finding, backcountry safety plus much more. Instruction will take place on-the-bike as we ride a section of the Idaho Hotsprings Bikepacking Route, enjoying the gorgeous South Fork of the Salmon River drainage. We will start at Warm Lake and finish in McCall while covering roughly 65 miles through some of the most beautiful terrain Idaho has to offer. We will ride primarily on Forest Service roads while camping at dispersed sites along the South Fork of the Salmon and Secesh rivers. Be sure to bring your climbing legs as the final segment is a 3000’+ ascent up and over Lick Creek summit before descending through the amazing Salmon River Mountains back to McCall.
