Re: Need Info On Red Fish Lake Area of Idaho
Most of that area (even within 50 miles) is all National Forest (Sawtooths/Challis), so pretty much any trail is going to be a USFS 'road'. There are a few of these 'roads' that are not maintained and are really nothing more than old mining/timber roads. I've been wheelin' above Challis (about 50 miles north of Redfish), and it was fun. The place was called Mosquito Flat Reservoir. My Jeep wasn't running at the time, so I broke in my new Ram (nice trail stripes[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]). The guy I was up there with was driving a '57 CJ-3B that fit on these trails. My Ram didn't fit. There were some good twisty trails up there. You could spend the day up there wheelin'. Many of these trails are older USFS roads that aren't maintained, so they can get pretty interesting. We went up there over the 4th of July, and I still got stuck in a drift. Glad I had my chain and come-a-long. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] This place is pretty fun (sorry, no pics). Not sure how far you want to travel to go wheeling. I've been told that there are quite a few old mining roads that are only accessible via a Jeep or ATV, but I haven't spent enough time up there to find them. Some of the locals (around Galena Summit) probably know where these trails are. You might even be able to get some info out of some of the mountain bikers. I'll keep digging and post more info as I find it.... Bret
