Rawhide Road is was the first road built into the headwaters of the North Fork of the Clearwater River. It started at Hoodoo Pass and came down along Long Ridge to Long Creek, then on to Cedars Ranger Station, according to Wendell Stark in North Fork of the Clearwater River: The Almost Forgotten History.
Its name came from the time of construction when a photographer named McCracken left his rawhide camera case to lighten the load he was carrying.
