I have seen a thread or two were an area of the country, possibly out west, is mentioned and referred to as “the box”. Since I am fairly new and live in the eastern part of the country I am naive about this. Can someone clue me in as to we’re this is and why it’s called the box.

Why don't you ask in the specific thread(s) that mention "the box"? Asking in the a different thread might not give people enough context to answer your question. When I search on "the box" I find these threads.

Wow I had no idea there was a nickname for this area, it's one of my favorites and I try to hit the Wallowas/Hells Canyon/Elkhorns every year...


Hits Oregon at about 13 minute mark.

I think we can trust FJR owners on this one...

There's a bunch on the map that I haven't hit, gonna have to get out there next summer... Hells Canyon Scenic byway isn't even on the map though...

In 2019 the tar snakes on Rattlesnake Grade were brutal, should be worn down enough now though.

Ya I think in many trips I've seen one cop.
