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.
NOTES: in 2020 they blocked part of the section going up the river which was sad. When it’s fully open there are multiple water crossings from Beaver dams through the creek. This was Larry Greenwood’s annual ride. Nice guy and we miss riding with him.
