Welcome Abundant Winter Recreation Activities Available in Boise County!

SCENIC LOOP By travelling on three designated scenic byways, you can make a loop trip. From Boise, take Highway 55 to Banks. From there, take the Banks-Lowman Road to Lowman (be sure and stop in Garden Valley/Crouch). Then go west on Highway 21 through historic Idaho City. The loop is 120 miles.

Since the early days of homesteading, community building and frontier taming, Boise County neighbors, Garden Valley, Lowman, Idaho City, Placerville, Banks and Horseshoe Bend have grown up and out. The County Communities extend far beyond the river valleys. The county is home to several thousand residents, and has become a tourist destination as well for those seeking a down-home feeling while remaining central to active pursuits, services and leisure alike.

Idaho City Idaho City Area Offers Outstanding Nordic Skiing Opportunities Idaho has a long snow season and high elevations, which translates into hundreds of miles of skate skiing, traditional skiing and snowshoeing opportunities. In addition to 300 miles of groomed ski trails you will find a few hundred more miles of marked trails that provide solitude and untouched powder. The Idaho City Area Yurt and Trail System is made up of 4 Park N’ Ski areas adjacent to Highway 21 between 18 and 25 miles northeast of Idaho City. It is approximately a two-hour drive from Boise. A permit is required to park in the Park N’ Ski parking lots between November 15th and April 30th. An annual pass is $25.00 and a temporary 3-day pass is $7.50. Passes are available for purchase on-line as well as in many of the local sport shops, the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation Headquarters building at 5657 Warm Springs Avenue in Boise and at Tom’s Service Station, Idaho City Grocery in Idaho City, and at the GV Chevron in Garden Valley. For updates on grooming status and trail conditions: Call the Idaho City Area Park N’ Ski recorded snowline at 208- 514-2423. All trails in this system are marked by 5” x 7” blue reassurance diamonds (blue blazes). The trails are non-motorized during snow months. Some of the trails are groomed and some are not (see map on web - http://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov). For winter use, the trails are generally rated More Difficult or Most Difficult for skiing under good snow conditions. There are some short steep sections with sharp turns requiring advanced skiing techniques. Dogs are not allowed on any of the groomed Banner Ridge Park N’ Ski trails during the winter (Dec 1st - Apr 15th). Dogs are welcomed on the trails in the Whoop-Um-Up, Beaver Creek and Gold Fork areas. Dog owners are responsible for removing all of their dog droppings from the trails and to leash/control their dogs in the parking lots at all times.

The Beaver Creek Summit Park N’ Ski Parking Area Trail (Dogs allowed year-round)

Intermediate/Advanced. 3 miles. This un-groomed out-and-back trail is designed especially for backcountry Nordic folks, whether on skis or snowshoes. You’ll understand how it got its name after you make your way to the top of Stargaze Point (1.5 miles one way) where you’ll find a 360 degree view of the Boise National Forest that includes Pilots Peak, Wilson Butte, Sunset Peak, Rock Creek and Scott Mountain. At over 6,500 feet, it’sthe perfect Telemark skiing on many north and west facing slopes where there is deep powder most winter seasons. The Park N’ Ski parking lot is just before the snowplow turn around on the left side of Hwy 21, about 300 yards before the Beaver Creek Summit. Do not park in the snowplow turn around parking lot. From the parking lot ski/snowshoe along the shoulder of Hwy 21 for about 300 yards until you reach the highest point, Beaver Creek Summit. At the summit turn left on an old road bed marked with a sign post saying “Stargaze Trail.”

Idaho City The Gold Fork Park N’ Ski Parking Area Trails (Dogs allowed year-round)

Yurts in this area are the Skyline (east side) and Whispering Pines (west side) yurts. This area connects to the Banner Ridge Park N’ Ski Area by the Beaver and Ralph’s trails. It connects with the Whoop-Um-Up Park N’ Ski Area by the Beaver and Wagon trails. This area has an east and west side. The west side has the Gold Fork loop, Moose, Lodgepole and Double Dip trails. The east side has the Skyline, Summit, Ridge, Ralph’s and Beaver trails.

The Whoop-Um-Up Park N’ Ski Parking Area Trails

(Dogs allowed year-round) The yurt located in this area is the Rocky Ridge yurt. The trailhead in the winter is located in the Park N’ Ski parking lot. All trails are ungroomed in the winter. Snowmobilers share the parking lot but have separate trails, leaving little chance you will encounter a snowmobile on the trails. These trails are rated Easiest and More Difficult under good snow conditions. There are short, steep sections with sharp turns requiring advanced skiing techniques. Trails are on both sides of Highway 21. For cross-country skiers, there are five backcountry yurts operated by the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation near the Idaho City Park N’ Ski areas, northeast of Idaho City. They are about an hour from Boise. Idaho City Backcountry Yurts are Accessible in the winter by Nordic ski or snowshoeing. You can choose from six fabulous backcountry yurts: Banner Ridge, Elkhorn, Skyline, Whispering Pines, Rocky Ridge, Stargaze. Each yurt sleeps six people in a comfortably well-furnished atmosphere with high mountain views and no neighbors. In winter, backcountry yurts are accessed by a 2-3 mile ski or snowshoe trek. The backcountry yurts have plenty to offer every outdoor enthusiast at any level, whether beginner or experienced. For more information about cross-country skiing opportunities visit: www.parksandrecreation.idaho. gov.

Idaho City Just an hour drive from Boise, along scenic Highway 21, is the classic western town of Idaho City. This town was once the largest mining settlement in the Pacific Northwest. Today it serves as a recreational hub and a popular day trip for residents in the Boise metro area. Idaho City is also surrounded by the Boise National Forest, so it is near some of southwest Idaho’s best outdoor recreational opportunities including ATV riding, hiking, fishing, camping and Nordic skiing! Activities that draw visitors to this location include the public hot springs, car shows, local museums, and the annual Idaho City Days.

Garden Valley - Area Attractions Winter Hot Springs -- South Fork of the Payette River. Garden Valley and Lowman Areas Hot Springs Campground

A popular soak between Hot Springs Campground and the South Fork of the Payette River, 6 miles southeast of Crouch on Hwy 17. Near milepost 14. There’s a pullout on the bank, and steps lead down to the pool. A comfortable soaker big enough for a family group has been dug out of the bank well above the river. The shallow pool, dammed with rocks, offers a toasty soak year-round courtesy of a shower pipe that transports the hot water from the 100-degree springs.

Pine Flats

Hot dips and cliffside showers near a family campground on the South Fork of the Payette River 5 miles west of Lowman. Pine Flats Campground is located below the BanksLowman Rd. 5.7 miles west of Lowman and 28 miles east of Banks. Look for the hottest pools on paths that wind up the backside of a cliff, and cooler soaks at the bottom. A cascade pouring over a cliff delineates one side of a pool hidden 20 feet above the river. Hot! Cooler pools at the bottom collect the runoff, leading to a large swimming hole at the river’s edge.

Kirkham

In plain view below the highway, these popular pools are frequently filled with people. 4.3 miles east of Lowman on State Hwy 21. Cross the bridge to Kirkham Campground and park at the west end. The Forest Service collects a day-use fee. Large pools with moderate temperatures. Worth trying either during the early mornings or during the winter, when congestion in the campground and number of users is at a low point.

32 -- Boise County Guide -- Winter 2019-2020 Issue


Garden Valley - Area Attractions Bonneville Hot Springs

Private bathing and communal soaking in a scenic canyon. 19 miles northeast of Lowman on Highway 21. .3 miles north of Bonneville Campground. Great place to ski or snowshoe to. No time when a hot soak is more welcome! Bonneville is a haven. The aging bathhouse straddles the outflow, and hoses channel hot water into a tub that you can drain and refill after each use. The springs check in at temperatures up to 185 degrees. They flow past the bathhouse and tumble dfirectly over a rocky cliff into a giant soaking pool on one arm of Warm Springs Creek. This is a sandy-bottomed gem that measures a good 25 by 30 feet. More hot water flows down the bank into more pools downstream as well as a secluded waterfall pool or two upstream. The bath house is usable year-round and excellent for a quiet retreat during the winter months.

Sacajawea

21 miles northeast of Lowman -- pulloff to Grandjean. Ski or snowmobile in approximately 5.3 miles, just past the Wapiti Creek Bridge. Climb down the rocks to the pools. A number of soaker-friendly pools line the shore along the scenic South Fork of the Payette River. The outflow comes from several springs at temperatures up to 153 degrees as it fans out down the bank. Fine-tune the pool temperatures by adding river water. Welcome refuge for a great warm up during the winter months!

Boise County Guide -- Winter 2019-2020 Issue -- 33


Garden Valley - Area Attractions Snowmobiling Paradise............. Just up the road from Garden Valley, check out the Lowman Area Snowmobiling Trails! Rock Creek Trail

Parking is available at the Whoop-Um-Up parking area (Park-n-Ski Fee area), or at the Edna Creek Campground (no fee).

With more than 7,200 miles of groomed trails and an endless horizon of untracked powder, Idaho is snowmobile paradise. Here you’ll find more groomed trails than any other Western state set in some of the most spectacular scenery you’ve ever seen. Sun-drenched vistas give way to blanketed valleys and frozen lakes. Rolling hillsides, forested mountains and wide-open plains await.

To get to the Rock Creek trail, you must start on the Edna Creek trail across from the WhoopUm-Up Parking area on Hwy 21. Travel the Edna Creek trail, which is 5 miles in length to Five Corners. There you connect with the Rock Creek trail, which takes you into Lowman. The trail is 12 miles long. In Lowman you may connect with other trails that go to Stanley. This trail is groomed.

Garden Valley offers 250 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. At the end of your day, soak in one of the area’s natural geothermal hot springs, or at one of our prime developed hot springs pool.

Clear Creek Trail

Keep in mind to let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return!

Parking is available at plowed parking areas in Lowman.

Our season stretches from November to April so there’s plenty of time to take it all in. Gas, food and lodging are close by, with the local community welcoming winter sports enthusiasts.

This trail will take you up Clear Creek Road into Bear Valley. Once in Bear Valley there are many play areas. Elk may be seen in the lower elevations. The trail follows the Bear Valley Road FS #582 up beyond Bruce Meadows and then takes you back to Highway 21 in the Challis National Forest. The trail will take you to Stanley in approximately 4 hours.

Bear Valley Trail

Parking is the same as for the Clear Creek Trail. The trail takes off from the Clear Creek Trail up in the Bear Valley area. Take Road #579 and follow it as far as you would like. When you get to Landmark/Deadwood Road #555, it’s as far as most go. The road going north has potential avalanche areas and is not recommended for travel.

Garden Valley - Area Attractions Garden Valley • Crouch The community is surrounded in all directions by mountain peaks -- some over 7,000 feet. Two river systems carve major valleys covered in green to sustain a variety of wildlife, stock and horses. In 1934 a new post office established the identity of Crouch, now one of the commercial districts for Garden Valley. The town was named after Billy Crouch, a miner who homesteaded near the confluence of the Middle and South Fork Rivers. In the 1920s, Crouch donated property for a new community hall in Garden Valley. Population -- 2,000 + ??? Elevation -- 3,200 ft.
