Idaho Hot Springs Mountain Bike Route special Summer 2020 closure

We know that cycling plans for many are up in the air right now or people have chosen to cancel their trips for the summer cycling season due to the covid-19 pandemic. For now, Adventure Cycling doesn't recommend cycling on our route network. Nevertheless, we wanted to make you aware of a construction project with significant impact on the Idaho Hot Springs main route.

A much anticipated construction project to rebuild a washout on Forest Road 227 between Featherville and Ketchum will commence on May 18th, 2020 and will remain closed, including bicycle and pedestrian traffic until approximately the end of July. This essentially closes the main route between Featherville and Ketchum. There is a detour, though it is not ideal. You can see it here: If we find a better detour in the future we will post it in our forums:

In addition there will be a period of time in July when traffic will be stopped during the day west of Worswick Hotsprings on Forest Road 227. (see map below)
