NW: Lost-N-Lava

Join us on September 25, 2015

No, you won't get lost, but you will ride some picturesque country. Trails will consist of two tracks and ATV trails on BLM property. Some rocky areas, rolling hills, but lots of great footing to move out or just cruise around and enjoy the incredible scenery.

We'll have 25, 55, and 75-mile endurance distances. A 14-mile trail ride will be available. Ride Camp is on private land adjacent to the Big Wood River.

So please come and ride! Located just west of SH-75 about 20 miles north of Shoshone, Idaho. It's easy to get to if you pay attention to the mile markers on State Highway 75. The turn-off is on the west side between the Big Wood River Bridge and the Richfield Canal bridge. A sign will be at the turn-off.

If traveling northbound on SH-75, the turn-off is about 0.2 of a mile north of mile marker 92. If you go over the canal bridge you have gone too far. If traveling southbound turn right about 0.8' of a mile south of Mile Post 93. This is about 0.5 mile south of the Richfield Canal Bridge. If you go over the Big Wood River bridge you missed the turn.

Once you get on the two-track you will drive about 2.5 miles to camp. The two-track is kind of rough in places, so take your time. You will go through an antique yard and around a couple homes. Just keep following the ribbons. You will see a corral to your left with draft horses. Keep going. You'll go past a couple gates, turn another bend and find the nicest flattest camp you will ever see!

Dinner will be provided Saturday night. Ride meeting starts promptly at 7:00 Friday night. Head vet is Dr. Keith Rouble, DVM. We will also have a treatment vet on site per the rules and recommendations of AERC.

Horse water will be provided at camp and on the trail. Rides will start by going through the Big Wood River. The river is about 2-3 feet deep if there is water running through it. The river will probably be dry. The property owners train draft horses so be prepared to see draft horses pulling wagons.

Cost: $90 for 25 and 55 mile distances, $110 for 75-mile distance. Juniors half price. Non-AERC members will be charged a day membership of $15. Trail ride is $25 and you don’t need to be an AERC member. All minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult and wear a helmet. Dinner is included with your ride entry. Extra Saturday evening meals may be purchased for $10.00.

Dogs are welcome but must be leashed and all times. This ride camp is on private land, but the BLM permit has required that we use weed free hay. Weed free hay is required and can be purchased at the Valley Coop in Shoshone. I'll try to bring some for the trail. Start times will depend on the weather.
