Beautiful ride at every turn. Going around Palisades Lake is beautiful. watch for Ospreys, dear and other wildlife. Between Swan Valley and Victor ID is just a BEAUTIFUL ride.

I rode the segment from Victor, ID to Jackson, WY. What a great ride! There were some nice, twisties and great changes in elevation. Have to watch your speed on those downhill curves, but this was fun!
