Idaho recreation council
Dennis Falconer
Published on: 4/8/2021
The Idaho Senate held a late session in to the evening last night. The result was overwhelming success for two of our initiatives. H86, which simplifies the sticker and registration process through IDPR, passed 35-0. It has now passed both chambers without a single no vote. H129, which allows expanded use of OHVs on public roads (including numbered state highways), passed 32-2. It has now passed both chambers, receiving only 2 no votes (in the Senate; nobody opposed in the House). I fully expect Governor Little will sign both bills inasmuch as they received such tremendous Legislative support. Thank you to each of you for the support you provided to ISATVA and IRC as we moved these bills forward on your behalf.
Best wishes,
David P. Claiborne, President

Backcountry
Dennis Falconer
Published on: 12/27/2020
Travel Advisory!!!!
As a result of the recent snowfall, the Backcountry is now closed to wheeled vehicles. Barricades have been put up at the local trailheads, to include Fernan Saddel, Bunco Trailhead and 4th of July Trailhead. The trails are not only open to tracked vehicles. Hayden creek at the intersection of FS Road 206 and FS Road 437 is also closed to wheeled vehicles, however barricades have yet to be placed at that location.
It is also important to know that all the remaining roads in the backcountry are impassable by vehicles. If someone does decide to venture out into the backcountry you should make sure to let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return. Pack plenty of extra food and water and dry clothing. A rescue could take several hours so it is important to be prepared.

The Low-Light-Limbo night ride was a success....kind of.
Joe Sh
Published on: 8/16/2020
We started off with 17 machines. 4 miles in we lost 6 of them to mechanical issues. At Gold Creek Lodge 3 of those returned and one straggler joined the group. An hour or so after dinner we were down 4 more due to time constraints and driver choice to take a different route. The remaining 10 of us (my mathmatacising ain't so good or my memory is fading...probably both) completed the trip without any issues while occasionally stopping to marvel at the stars and give out the remaining prizes for trivia and scavenger hunt items. Two 5 point bucks, a moose, a skunk, multiple bats and more rabbits and field mice than could be counted were spotted throughout the trip...it pays to lead. :)
Thanks to all who attended and a huge thank you to Kaleb and Suzanne Bleeker for picking up cones for us.

Trail Maintenance July 11th
Joe Sh
Published on: 6/27/2020
Trail Maintenance on July 11. We would like to have enough people to have two crews working maybe 1/2 mile apart. One crew with at least 7 to 8 people with two gas powered long pole hedge trimmers and two gas powered pole saws. The other 3 to 4 people would throw brush off the trail and shuttle machines. The second crew with at least 4 to 5 people with one gas powered hedge trimmer and one gas powered pole saw. The other 2 to 3 people would throw brush and shuttle machines. More people would be great then we could add chain saws to the crews for cutting larger brush and trimming downfall trees. Meet at 4th of July North parking lot at 9 am. The club has all the equipment. 50” trail. Call if you need a ride on the trail. Bring lunch and water. Usually back to parking lot between 2 to 4 pm.

It would appear people are reporting WA license plates found in ID recreation areas and law enforcement is taking action....don't shoot the messenger.

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, March 27, 2020 – Effective March 28, many or most developed campgrounds and certain other recreation sites on the Idaho Panhandle National Forests will be closed until further notice for the health and safety of visitors and staff. A full list of restricted areas is available below. Read the full closure order here.

As we work through an unpredictable and rapidly changing situation, the health and safety of visitors, as well as Forest Service employees and volunteers is our number one priority. We are working to meet the guidelines for cleaning and to promote social distance per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To support these efforts, rental cabins will be temporarily closed to public entry indefinitely until further notice and will be closed and unavailable to rent via Recreation.gov. Notification to cabin renters will be made as soon as possible and refunds will be processed.

We are committed to continuing to support our communities
