    Sawtooth Mtns: Lowman

    Whoa........what a beautiful system of trails in the Sawtooth mtns. Don't overlook Idaho when seeking out some new playground with mile upon mile of ST that ribbons thru the forests. I spent 6 days with Escape Adventures (YES, this is a plug for them, they were excellent) in the Idaho "hills". The 5th day in we rode in the Lowman area, a trail referred to as Deadwood River-Julie Creek Trail...... warmly shortened and regarded as "dead julie".

    Lemme ta you, this is no wussie XC run! 12 miles of climb to an elevation gain to 3500ft, then 7 miles DOWN the same gain! Hot doggie, glad I have a 140mm fork on my rig. This photo was taken at a point in the DeadJulie downhill where it was described to me as "the trail will just drop out from under you".......... NO SHEET. I put the camera away and shreaded that winding corkscrewy twisty downhill like I knew what I was doing. Got to the bottom and was.........breathless. Add Idaho to your shortlist!

    From San Diego...

    We rode the Yuba River Trail out of the Atlanta area. Banner Ridge was another trail. I don't remember the others. The hot springs thru out the area were a fantastic way to end each day's ride!

    Mmm. The best part is, it's only a 2 hour drive outside the city (if you go through Idaho City).
