Off highway vehicle (OHV) travel on motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides, and mountain bikes around the Challis area will take you to special places that you can’t see from the paved roads. Miles and miles of double and single track roads and trails traverse open sagebrush country and forested areas. Off-road explorers can reach high ridge tops on roads such as the Spar Canyon Road, south of Challis, historic areas such as the Custer Motorway, and Bayhorse ghost town via the Lombard Trail.

Off highway travelers utilize these trails spring, summer and fall, and also on the three day Ride the Bayhorse event in August. Local businesses have ATVs and side-by-sides for rent if you don’t have your own. Whether you lodge in town or camp at one of the many surrounding campgrounds, our network of trails will facilitate OHV travel. OHV travel can provide beautiful and exciting adventures in the remote mountains or broad valleys of central Idaho. Visit the local Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service offices for OHV travel maps and information.
