Central Idaho road to snowbank opens after memorial day

  1. This road is just south of Cascade and the same road for the Cabarton put in. The road is plowed all winter to access the radio towers but opens for public use after memorial day. There is a camping spot about half way up but no bathroom or water source. Up at blue lake is a bathroom but usually snowed in at opening. The pass at the top is at 8200'. There is a ton of terrain and lots of people take advantage of the opening. Sorry no pics, its been a few years since I've gone but heading again this year weekend after memorial. On Caltopo go just south west of the southern tip of cascade lake to view the zone. Tripod peak is another landmark.
