Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route Trail System
The new Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route (IDBDR) is expected to be ready January 2015.

The Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route (AZBDR) was released earlier this year and exciting reports are already coming back from the field from those exploring the new trail system. Now the Backcountry Discovery Route organization is at it again working on their next installment, the Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route (IDBRD).

The IDBDR will be the fifth trail system produced by the non-profit BDR organization. The final route is expected to be the longest BDR route so far, with over 1,000 miles of mostly off-road tracks. The route will travel south-to-north across the state of Idaho through the rocky mountains, starting in Jarbidge, Nevada and ending at the Canadian border.

Two historic back roads will be part of the Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route, the Magruder Corridor and the Lolo Motorway. Several small mountain towns in Idaho are stopping points along the way, including Yellow Pine, Burgdorf Hot Springs, Elk City, Avery, Wallace, and Clark Fork.

There is still a lot of hard work to do, but the BDR organization expects the route to be one of the most scenic BDR’s to date. The IDBDR movie, Butler Map and free GPS tracks are scheduled for release January 2015.

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing the map of the route! I’ll add it to my list for next Summer. Heading out to do more of the OBDR this coming July 4th weekend… Route 4 and part of Route 5 north of 4. Did most of Route 3 last Summer.
