Idaho Hot springs route
Great thanks to Adventure Cycling Association for putting this route together. The route, set as a loop, meanders the central part of Idaho with lots of stops for replenishing supplies and bailout options incase of any back country troubles. You'll almost always find yourself along a beautiful river or stream with a chance to hop into a hot spring. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking.
Over 50 hot springs, 35,000' of climbing, tons of national forests, beautiful rivers, wildlife!!
It can be very cold in the Autumn at high elevations.
If you are planning to do a bit of soaking its important to do the route in more than 7 days.
Mostly dirt, some pavement, washouts and some river beds (as pictured to the left).
7-14 days/472 miles
Mid-summer through fall
