Atlanta would be a good bet if you want seclusion. Its hidden pretty deep in the back country.

A group of us from Treasure Valley Wheelerz are doing the Magruder trail, 23 June - 27 June...... If you want to get away from it all this is a trail for you.... 8)

For hundreds of years, Nez Perce buffalo hunters traveled the route known as the Southern Nez Perce Trail. The hunters used this route for seasonal migration from their Camas Prairie homeland to buffalo hunting grounds in Montana. In the 1860’s, miners, traders, and homesteaders also used this trail as the most direct route from Montana to the Elk City area goldfields.
In the 1930’s, a single lane forest road was constructed near the traditional Nez Perce thorough fare. In some places, portions of the original footpath are still visible. The historic “Nez Perce Trail Road,” also known as the Magruder Road, Elk City to Darby Road, Montana Road and the Parker Trail, has changed little in the 70 years since its construction.

The Nez Perce Trail Road follows the Magruder Road Corridor, created in 1980 by the Central Idaho Wilderness Act. This corridor cuts through millions of acres of wilderness in Selway-Bitter root and Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Areas.

The Nez Perce Trail Road begins near the Red River Ranger Station and is 101 miles through the corridor. Travelers should plan on eight to ten hours to make this fantastic journey. The Nez Perce Trail Road is a primitive one-lane road, rough, steep and winding. It is suitable for high clearance vehicles. For an overnight trip, there are primitive camp sites along the way. Bring a tent.

The road is generally open from early to mid- July through early to mid-October. It is well-maintained by the Forest Service during the summer months, but snow storms may persist into July or arrive early in the fall. Travelers should be prepared for snow-covered or muddy roads. Vehicles should be stocked with extra gas, food, water, a spare tire and tools, a shovel, an axe and emergency equipment. Services are available in Elk City, Idaho, and Darby, Montana. There are no services for the 117 miles between these communities.

This remote trip presents solitude, pristine beauty and expansive mountain views. It offers a tranquil escape from crowded high ways, with a landscape much the same as when the Nez Perce Indians and other early travelers crossed this rugged terrain.
