US Bike Route #10

Recently, I attended a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Route #10 that runs through North Idaho.  They also unveiled the new road sign that will designate this new route.  This is a pretty big deal for North Idaho and pretty progressive, if I may say so.  Thanks to those locally that worked so hard to make this happen, Pend Oreille Pedalers, Idaho Walk & Bike Alliance and ITD.  And, if you know nothing about the National Corridor Plan or Adventure Cycling and all they work they put in nationally on these route, here is a little light reading to get you up to speed...

Bulldog Point Trail

This will be my last post on Priest Lake riding...for a little while at least.  There is this little trail off the Woodrat (or Hoodrat) Tr called Bulldog Point.  It is only 2 miles long.  There used to be a good scenic overlook, but it is getting pretty overgrown now.  A little below the actual lookout, there is actually a better view spot these days.

Anyway, the Bulldog Tr is a really, really fun ride.  Good climb up to lookout, then a great descent to road.  Not really worth driving all the way to Priest to do this one trail, but in combination with the Hoodrat Tr you would be in for a good afternoon of riding.  Check it out next time you are up there.

that is not a bulldog
