This is a fun ride on an ADV bike. You have 2 options from St. Maries to Avery. One side of the river has a nice paved road. The other is an old railroad grade, which is a really fun ride on an ADV (both sides are nice). Calder (mile 24 IIRC) has a good little restaurant. Avery (about mile 48) has food and a couple options for food (one with great Huckleberry ice cream). From Avery to Gold Creek is an absolutely fantastic street/adv road. Nice twisties for about 30 miles, all following the scenic St. Joe. From Gold Creek, I recommend dropping south to the historic Red Ives ranger station. From there you can come out over Heller Creek (ADV only) in Superior. Alternatively, go back N. to Gold Creek, and head east to Superior. There is about 12 miles of somewhat loose gravel this way. Not an issue on an ADV, and very doable on a street bike if you have experience on dirt roads.
