Big Idaho Shuttle dropping over 6000' on Thunder Mountain and Henry Creek Trails from the top of Lake Mountain to the Salmon River.
This is Idaho backcountry riding at its finest.
This ride takes 1.5-3 hours without the shuttle setup. There is a climb on Forest Road from Thunder Mountain to Henry Creek (Upper) and Upper Henry itself has some climbing before the bottom drops out.
Start the ride on the Ridge Road near the top of Lake Mountain, not because it is convenient but because you are antsy to get out of the car and onto your bike. At least an hour is needed to get to the Dropoff. Pick up is at Henry Creek Trailhead.
