Lolo Pass to Lost Lake

Is that normally passable on a street bike in the summer? I was on the Lost Lake side yesterday and encountered a crew clearing the road for snowmobiles (?!).

It's not for the faint of heart for sure. A few of us did it on dual sports, and it wasn't too bad. They had snow fall in mid May and some roads were still impassable.

I rode this recently (checked it out with my pickup first) If you are using FR18 from the Welches side it is paved all the way to the top of the Lolo Pass. If you choose to drop over the other side to continue towards Lost Lake you get to choose between going straight for 3 miles of really rocky dirt road (FR18) or take a right and go 5.5 miles on a maintained dirt road (FR1810). I would definately choose the 5.5 miles unless you were on an adventure bike. My Tuono was an unwilling participant but nevertheless made the journey.

The network of roads back there has enticed me to look into adding a supermoto to my garage over the winter. It is really pretty back there and I did see a black bear...he was in a hurry to get far far away from me.
