About The Event
Starting in Superior, MT (just off I-90) we are launching an overlanding expedition into the remote wilderness of the Bitteroot Mountains, following the Clearwater River and entering The Magruder Corridor with a final destination of Darby MT.
Incredibly remote, this route connects two of the largest Wilderness areas in the lower 48 states. The wildflowers in bloom, excellent fly-fishing, and wolves howling in the evenings will make this an unforgettable adventure.
This is a family-oriented trip, with plenty of time set aside for camping, fishing and making new friendships. With a relaxed pace, the route will take four to five days to complete (but you may never want to go home). There are a few bail-out points along the way (Elk City and Pierce ID). The route will conclude in Darby, MT.
Most of the route can be easily driven in a stock high-clearance vehicle. I rode a good portion of the route on my bike last summer. However, due to the very remote nature of this expedition, gear requirements will include a full-sized spare, and a half-tank's worth of reserve fuel.
