Get on board for the SBC “Wallace Blues Festival” tour July 12 to 14. Choose from one of two starting points on the beautiful “Trail of the Coeur d’ Alene’s” to Wallace, depending on your mileage preference. 

Option 1: Start in Plummer, ID if you have more “mileage desire” (65 miles to Wallace) or,

Option 2: Start from the Bull Run milepost near Rose Lake (31 miles to Wallace).  Tour leaders will transport you to your starting point unless you want to leave a car.

The Wallace Blues Festival is a very popular event and lodging in the area is at a premium.  SBC tour leaders have secured a large area near the Chamber of Commerce Building for camping (included in the “Option 1 Camping” tour price). There is plenty of room for RVs without additional cost.  A bathroom (no showers) and a wooden canopy to cook/sit under in case of foul weather is a short walking distance. Showers are a short bike ride away.


We have our own secured dining room at the 1313 Club for dinners Friday and Saturday nights. The rest of your meals are on your own and not included in the price of the tour.


Lots of fun activities are available in the general area when not attending the music festival: The Mining Heritage Exhibition, the Northern Pacific RR Museum, the Oasis Bordello Museum (don’t blush), the Pulaski Tunnel Trail, Route of the Hiawatha, Sierra Silver Mine Tour, Silver Streak Zipline Tours, the Wallace District Mining Museum and others.  Advanced research on logistics and costs are recommended.

Option 1 “Camping” ($60) costs includes rider, bicycle and luggage transportation to the starting points and camping area, overnight camping for two nights (12th and 13th), and dinner for two nights (12h and 13th; tip is included).

Option 2 “Motels/Airbnb, etc.” ($60) provides the same benefits as Option 1 with the difference being you are not camping but are responsible for your own sleeping accommodations and related costs. It might take some searching (Kellogg is only 11 miles away). 






Option 3 “On Your Own” ($60) allows for riders to take their own cars, but to join us at for dinners and other SBC activities, and ride towards us from Wallace (optional).

For all options, the cost of the Blues Festival ($40) is not included; tickets can be secured once you arrive  in Wallace (officials have told us there are plenty).

If minimum registration is not met by July 1, the tour will be cancelled,and full refunds given.  Individual cancellations after July 1 will not be refunded.  If you have signed up and the tour is cancelled, you are still welcome to join Scott and friends in Wallace for a great weekend of camping and activities.
