NOTES: Banner Mine is close to the Graham ride and unloads from the same spot. Not a long trip. As of last year August (2020) the road to Banner mine was closed. Should call the forest service before you go. Hal & Becky Hunt have been the ride leaders for this ride in years past. Good people and they really know the area if you have questions.
NOTES: One section has some troubling side hills. See Hattie Harrels for more detail. This ride starts in a different area than many have started this ride. It goes through some cattle land and you have to open up several gates. You can start and do this same ride (shorter) from the Cow Creek unload area at 43.091652 -117.211620.
NOTES: you can do Wild Cat Gulch and by-pass Grimes Creek road. Little longer ride, but more scenic. The ride on the 28th of June was run by Patrick Sherman doing the Wild Cat Gulch run. Long day. The start of Wild Cat Gulch is 43.72658 -115.94846 and ends at 43.85204 -115.87467. Where it ends is at the main road to Idaho City. Go to the Left (not towards Idaho City) and you’ll catch up with the other Hawley Mt. ride that does Grimes Creek.
