Succor Creek Adventure Ride 3 22 08

Riders –

Byron - KTM 950

Kurt - KTM 950

John - KTM 950

Mark - KTM640

Thad - BMW 1200

Loop ~ 225 miles

4 of us met at Rockies at 8AM.

We rendezvous’d with Kurt in Homedale.

It was a COLD ride down I-84 !


Took some side tracks off of the main Succor Creek road, which ended at the base of the cliffs or at the creek.


Took a short jaunt up the tracks across the bridge at the campground.

I’ve been told you can reach Jump Creek Falls on them.

They are better suited for thumpers although one probably could ride the big twins on them if you had time.


Followed a ranch road the looped us back north above the cliffs. It dropped out of cliffs at Devil’s Gate, a grotto with a small water fall.

There are a couple of memorials at the base of the falls. I’m surprised the BLM hasn’t removed them.


Took a lunch break, Byron gave us an oral history of Boise – he knows everyone in town.

Then buzzed down the main road to Leslie Gulch.



DAGO GULCH- Freshly graded “non-motorized” road ?

Map shows a homestead up the draw. You also can see some mine roads on mountain at the end of the draw.


Mark – Owyhee Reservoir

I wonder how far you could make it down the shore.
