Track simplification

The main track leads up to the VOR site (VHF Omnidirectional Radio Range - an aviation navigation signal broadcast station), and good views of the Rocky Mountain Trench in all directions.

This ride is suitable for all dual sport motorcycles and any wheeled vehicle with reasonable clearance - as long as you do a straight up and back. The Lisbon loop shown here on return is a suckerhole that leads into some long steep downhills through alders growing over from each side. With the wrong weather or a deadfall across the track, you might end up not being to climb back out. That loop does not provide views of any scenery - it just requires more effort and work. For the adventurous, there is also apparently a track from the VOR site northwest into Angus Creek and then the St Maries FSR. I ran out of gas before being able to see if it hooks up with the ridge ride.

The ridge ride from the top wavers between between double and single track.
