Awesome trail run. 1200 miles off road. So much to see, I eventually stopped taking pictures every 5’ and just enjoyed the scenery. Video will be up once edit is completed. It’s a lot of video‍♂

If I'm still at my current job next year (not actively looking, but you know)... I'll have a total of 5 weeks vacation for next year. Hoping to do some bigger trips, and this would be one of them.

Thanks. I'm doing Colorado to the artic ocean (Dempster) next summer and your original post made me consider running the IDBDR as the first part of that. Unfortunately, I think it will add too much extra time onto the trip. I'll just have to do this one as a stand alone trip one day. That way I could give it the time I'm sure it deserves.

I just looked up the Idaho BDR. Looks like fun. We went to that area in August. We went west on the Lolo and back east via the Magruder Corridor/ Nex Perce Trail Road.

My wife about killed me on the Magruder going up to Burnt Knob in her Rubicon early August…which we ended up turning around on. Bummer. She later did not want any part of shelf roads. The rocks on the way up to Burnt Knob made her feel like she was going to tip over she said and then she literally froze up. My kid had to drive up to the pull off and go back down to pick her up. My modestly modified Sahara easily went up but I turned around too. It didn’t feel right going up and experiencing the view without everybody. Maybe I’ll return one day.

From about the 25-50 % section of that trail, my wife was hating life, unfortunately. Honestly, the last videos I could find were at least 4 years old and the conditions likely changed, and they absolutely did up to the Knob.

Unfortunately burnt knob was a section that was closed up. I’m planning on getting that section next summer. As well as the corridor. Those shelf roads can be intimidating for sure. But I here the view is epic. Hoping to hit the Utah bdr and Washington bdr next year also. Ultimate wish list is the trans American trail though. I’m going to start planning that trip out this winter.
