Nestled against the western side of the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains, Idaho remains a vast and diverse state. Tales of the sharp Sawtooth Mountains and whispers of the untamed wild have found their way to folks around the world. Take a look at some of the Gem State’s most famous natural attractions, and share your photos with us using the #VisitIdaho hashtag. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

1. NORTH

PRIEST LAKE Tucked away in the top of Idaho’s panhandle, just below the Canadian border, rests Priest Lake, a crystal-clear body of water stream-fed from the towering Selkirk peaks. The main body of Priest Lake stretches to the north for 19 miles, and a two-mile thoroughfare connects the main lake to the remote Upper Priest Lake–a region accessible only by foot, mountain bike, or boat. Journey here

and uncover endless miles of untouched shorelines, cast a line, or hike one of the forested trails that wrap around the lake’s sandy beaches. More north Idaho adventures at visitidaho.org/north

2. NORTH CENTRAL

HELLS CANYON Hells Canyon National Recreation Area has it all: dramatic changes in elevation, wildlife galore, and scenic vistas. North America’s deepest river gorge plunges to depths of over 7,900 feet and carves its way through North Central Idaho 90 miles south of Lewiston. The recreation area offers remote wilderness exploration, countless acres of spectacular terrain, world-class whitewater boating, and unparalleled fishing. You might even catch a glimpse of Idaho’s largest herds of bighorn sheep scaling the canyon walls. More north central Idaho adventures at visitidaho.org/north-central


3. SOUTHWEST

PAYETTE LAKE

Hells Canyon

Payette Lake is a 5,330-acre expanse of fresh, glacial water in the heart of the southwest mountains of Idaho. This popular summer destination was carved out by a glacier over 10,000 years ago and now spans 2.5 miles wide and 8 miles long. Camping here is quintessential, as the bordering Ponderosa State Park offers over 1,000 acres of natural wilderness, biking trails, and campsites. Take an easy stroll along the Peninsula Trail following the eastern shore, try your hand at water skiing, or rent a paddleboard and glide atop the lake’s sparkling surface. More southwest Idaho adventures at visitidaho.org/southwest

4. SOUTH CENTRAL

CITY OF ROCKS

Payette Lake

Long before the City of Rocks became a nationwide rock-climbing destination, it was a resting spot for the early pioneers in the 1800s who traversed the California Trail. Hundreds of weather-carved granite monoliths protrude out of the surrounding terrain like rock giants from another planet. The park’s diversity offers visitors outstanding opportunities for day hikes, and rocks of every shape and size for the avid climber. More south central Idaho adventures at visitidaho.org/south-central

5. SOUTHEAST

MINNETONKA CAVE

City of Rocks

Minnetonka Cave is a massive limestone cave situated high above Bear Lake. This nine-room cave of stalactites, stalagmites and banded travertine spans

over half a mile and is home to several bat species. Descend below the earth’s surface and take a guided tour past the legendary stalactite known as The Bride, and walk between magnificent stalagmites over 10 feet high. Guided tours of Minnetonka Cave are offered mid-June through Labor Day. More southeast Idaho adventures at visitidaho.org/southeast

6. EAST

MESA FALLS Mesa Falls has two thundering falls along the Snake River, and each one is worth the stop. These falls are the last prominent waterfalls on the Snake River that are unaffected by man-made influences—flowing over what is left of an ancient volcanic super-eruption. Stand next to Upper Mesa Falls, as tall as a 10-story building, or journey a mile down the Snake to Lower Mesa Falls and catch a booming encore chiseling away at the solidified ash and lava. From the visitor center, an accessible trail and boardwalk provide spectacular views as the sun peeks through curtains of mist. More east Idaho adventures at visitidaho.org/east

7. CENTRAL

CRATERS OF THE MOON You don’t have to travel to Hawaii to walk on a lava flow from an ancient volcano. All you have to do is take a short drive two hours north of Twin Falls to Craters of the Moon. There are just a few places in the world where you can explore underground lava tubes and see where molten lava once flowed for miles on end, and Craters of the Moon is one of them. Above the surface, vibrant light and expansive views await, while down below, the lava tubes offer hikers a unique view into the inner workings of the lava flows. Grab your map at the trailheads, or head over to the visitor center and learn about the power of Mother Nature. More south central adventures at visitidaho.org/central

e’re pretty sure you won’t believe

how much amazing we manage to squeeze into that little panhandle at the top of Idaho—and how much amazing you’ll experience when you start looking, hiking, floating, and skiing around. Let’s start with the water. There’s a lot: mountain lakes framed by jagged crests and historic Western downtowns; big, meandering, full-of-trout rivers; and lazy streams where moose slurp mossy grasses. Most of the region’s water-based recreation and resorts center around our three biggest gems: Lake Coeur d’Alene, Lake Pend Oreille, and Priest Lake. Head to Coeur d’Alene for nonstop swimming and boating, shopping, and golfing; to Sandpoint for a low-key art and outdoors scene; or to the Priest Lake area for a more pristine experience. Explore North Idaho’s colorful past—the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, miners, loggers, and even Jesuit missionaries all have tales to tell, and they’ll unfold in places like Wallace, where every downtown building is on the National Register. What else will you find here? Eight state parks, six scenic byways, three signature biking trails, and three amazing ski areas—that’s big adventure no matter the season.

Lake Pend Oreille

BONNERS FERRY

PRIEST LAKE/PRIEST RIVER

Bonners Ferry is about as “north Idaho” as it gets. Just a few miles from the Canadian border, this little town sprang up around a river crossing for gold prospectors in the late 1800s. It’s nestled between three mountain ranges, the sweeping Kootenai River runs through downtown, and the surrounding valley is a swath of farmland so pretty you’ll wish you knew how to grow something just so you could live here. Downtown still has that authentic Western feel: evergreens and foothills backing up to quaint shops, an art gallery, and a pub that brews with locally grown hops. Also downtown is the Kootenai River Inn Casino; the Kootenai Tribe runs this spot, as well as a sturgeon hatchery just west of town. If you’re here to be outside, get to it! There’s plenty to do and see—300 miles of trails, moose-spotting at the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, scenic views along the International Selkirk Loop, and waterfalls tumbling just about everywhere.

If your soul is pining for a pristine getaway, head to the rugged, uncrowded shores of Priest Lake. Lovingly called “Idaho’s Crown Jewel,” Priest Lake will take your breath away; its 80 miles of shoreline are largely undeveloped, offering quiet sandy beaches, forested trails, wildlife, and the dramatic ridges of the Selkirk Mountains. Fish, hike, or spend long summer days on the water; local outfitters rent kayaks and canoes. You can make one of the many waterfront resorts your home base, or just stop in to dine lakeside for views you won’t soon forget. In winter, cross-country ski or tackle incredible snowmobile terrain up to 7,000 feet, and cheer on competitors at the popular Vintage Snowmobile Races. At the nearby town of Priest River, nosh and grab coffee or something a bit more bubbly at the Beardmore Bistro & Wine Bar.

Silverwood

SANDPOINT Top 10 Dream Town, Idaho’s Hippest Mountain Town, #1 Ski Town—just a few names Sandpoint’s been called lately by the likes of Sunset, Men’s Journal, and Rand McNally. This small town’s got something special. For starters, it’s perched right on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille, with mountains and forests in literally every direction. Then there’s Main Street, one of Idaho’s most picturesque historic districts, with eclectic art galleries, boutiques, and eateries—plus a farmers market and art walks all summer long. Be sure to try the fresh seafood at the Trinity at City Beach, which also serves up a sparkling view of the lake. Of course, if you’re in Sandpoint, you’re here to be outside— urban and off-road cycling, horseback riding; angling for Lake Pend Oreille’s giant Kamloops trout; boating and swimming; and camping or otherwise “roughing it” at a lakeside lodge. In winter, head to the powdery hills at Schweitzer Mountain, 2,900 acres of wide-open space for skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

COEUR D’ALENE

Coeur d’Alene Resort

Summer days in Coeur d’Alene are fresh, shimmering, happy. Spending time in this small city, on the shores of one of the country’s prettiest lakes, means waterskiing and building sand castles, roaming in and out of art galleries, and sipping wine at sunset. Lake Coeur d’Alene is the major draw, with almost 110 miles of shoreline and crystal blue waters perfect for swimming, sailing, jet-skiing, and relaxed cruising tours. Soak it all in from above with a parasailing adventure or seaplane tour. You’ll catch amazing views and see osprey diving for their dinner when you hike Tubbs Hill peninsula or pedal along the North Idaho Centennial Trail.

Treat the kids to a day of riding, splashing, and screaming with pure joy at Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach Water Park, just a few miles north. Coeur d’Alene winters are known for prime powder, so find your bliss at any of the three nearby resorts— Schweitzer Mountain, Silver Mountain, and Lookout Pass. Bring the family to see the Coeur d’Alene Holiday Light Show, a wonderland of over 1.5 million lights and the largest on-the-water holiday light display in America. If you’re here for a special occasion, make a reservation at Beverly’s in the Coeur d’Alene Resort, known for its fresh seasonal cuisine and large selection of Northwest wines. Locals will point you to Hudson’s Hamburgers, a longtime fixture here, for a truly old-fashioned burger.

POST FALLS Often called “Idaho’s River City,” Post Falls gets its name from Frederick Post, who secured a treaty with the Coeur d’Alene Tribe to build a sawmill on the banks of the Spokane River. A pictograph memorializing the purchase is carved into a granite cliff in Treaty Rock Park. There’s sun and fun at Q’emiln Park, with a beach and boat launch, trails offering rocky river views, and numerous climbing and bouldering spots. Meander over to Templin’s Marina for barbecues and beach volleyball, or pontoon boat, kayak, or paddleboard rentals. Post Falls is just 10 minutes from Coeur d’Alene, so it’s an easy day trip destination or a convenient home base for all of your adventures.

SILVER VALLEY/ WALLACE/KELLOGG Wallace hit it big in 1882, when gold and silver were found in this tiny mountain town. Silver Valley became the world’s largest silver mining region, and today balances its mining operations with world-class recreation and tourism. (The entire Wallace downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places.) Explore the area’s industrious past at the Northern Pacific Depot Railroad Museum, the Wallace District Mining Museum, and the Shoshone County Mining & Smelting Museum in Kellogg—then head underground for guided tours of the Sierra Silver Mine in Wallace and the Crystal Gold Mine near Kellogg. Miners are honored at the Sunshine Mine Disaster Memorial, also in Kellogg. Be sure to pack your outdoor gear—this is prime country for backpacking, cycling and mountain biking, rafting, and more. The Route of the Hiawatha rail-trail is a must. Pedaling is pure pleasure as you meander along the North Fork of the St. Joe, through railroad tunnels, over trestle bridges, and past never-ending waterfalls. Recharge with a quick bite at the funky Red Light Garage, grab a beer at Wallace Brewing, or head to Kellogg’s quaint Moose Creek Grill. When the flurries fly, find your winter bliss at Lookout Pass or Silver Mountain.

WORLEY/PLUMMER/ HARRISON South of Lake Coeur d’Alene is the Coeur d’Alene Reservation, as well as the towns of Worley and Plummer. Golden fields of wheat and barley stretch for miles in every direction, and the Coeur d’Alene Casino and its popular Circling Raven Golf Club invite you to try your luck on the slots and on the course. The nearby Heyburn State Park is awe-inspiring, a mix of centuries-old ponderosa pines, colorful wildflowers, three lakes, and habitat for blue heron, bald eagles, and moose. At the southern end of Lake Coeur d’Alene sits Harrison, a quiet resort town perfect for those pedaling the western end of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes or looking for a laid-back place to play. Harrison feels just as magical during December’s Winterfest, when downtown sparkles with holiday lights, carolers, and a visit from Santa.

ST. MARIES This sleepy lumber town along the Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway is one of those best-kept secrets among serious sportspeople. Its northern boundary, the St. Joe River, happens to be one of Idaho’s 10 blue-ribbon wild trout streams, and the surrounding forests offer some of the West’s finest elk hunting. Rafting and floating are plentiful here, too, as are hiking, four-wheeling, and snowmobiling in and around nearby public lands. If you’re lucky, you might find a rare star garnet at the Emerald Creek Garnet Area or an old logging camp along Marble Creek Trail.

Silver Valley

CATALDO As you approach the Mission of the Sacred Heart, you can feel why this majestic spot was chosen to celebrate and give thanks. Set gracefully on a knoll overlooking the Coeur d’Alene River, Idaho’s oldest standing building takes you back to the 1840s, when local tribe members first heard the spiritual teachings of “Black Robes”—Jesuit missionaries led by Father De Smet. The Coeur d’Alene Tribe and the missionaries built the mission side by side in the early 1850s with few tools and no nails. The site is now protected as part of the Coeur d’Alene’s Old Mission State Park, where you can also explore the Parish House and two cemeteries. An exhibit in the visitor center reveals the long-lasting effects of this encounter on the Coeur d’Alene and Salish tribes. Chat history and grab a burger with the locals at the friendly Mission Inn.

Hells Canyon

N

orth central Idaho is river country, a

rugged oasis for boaters, fishermen, and families who seek out the West’s most iconic waterways. The Salmon River, known as the “River of No Return” for reasons that quickly become clear, churns up miles and miles of adrenaline-inducing whitewater sure to get a few screams (the good kind) out of you as you raft or kayak its impressive waters. If you prefer, roar over the rapids in a jet boat on the Snake River in Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge, or fish the Snake’s waters for giant sturgeon. We’ve got other thrills, too, like blue-ribbon trout streams, insane salmon and steelhead runs, and a bed and breakfast shaped like a beagle (the world-famous Dog Bark Park Inn near Cottonwood). When you dry out, take a scenic late afternoon bicycle ride through golden wheat fields out on the Palouse, or through the flower-filled meadows of Camas Prairie. Tour the many important and sacred sites that make up the Nez Perce National Historic Park, which celebrates the Nimi’ipuu, who have hunted, fished, and lived on these lands for thousands of years. In winter, two words: Snowmobiling. Everywhere. For more about north central Idaho, go to

SPONTANEITY

Moscow Mountain

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

MOSCOW Saturday mornings in Moscow are heavenly. Potters, painters, bakers, and growers hawk their wares at the downtown farmers market, cafes serve up locally roasted brews, and cyclists ride out into the golden Palouse. The whole scene has a college town feel, as it should, since it’s home to the University of Idaho, but this is a college town for grown-ups, too—see why so many fall in love with it by touring the historic Fort Russell neighborhood. Browse downtown’s quaint shops, grab fresh-baked nibbles or a savory lunch at the Bloom Café, and visit the Idaho Forest Fire Museum to read up on Idaho’s famous 1910 fire and hero Edward Pulaski. Head to the Appaloosa Museum for the story of the celebrated breed that played a critical role in Nez Perce and American West history. Thursday evenings in summer, bring a picnic to East City Park for the Fresh Aire Concert Series. From fall to spring, take in the Great Performance Series, a season of professional dance on the Palouse. Attend live theater at

Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, Moscow Art Theatre (Too), Moscow Community Theatre, and Hartung Theatre on the university campus— home to Idaho Repertory Theatre and student productions. April brings HempFest fun to East City Park. Be sure to tour the university’s beautiful grounds, originally designed by the Olmsted brothers (of Central Park fame), and its Tudor Gothic-style centerpiece, the Admin building. Take a relaxing stroll through the campus jewel, the 63-acre Arboretum & Botanical Garden, featuring display gardens, tree groves, water features, and trails. In February, follow the music to the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, four days of student performances and evening concerts by new and legendary jazz artists alike.

The Palouse

Moscow’s surrounding fields, hills, and forests beckon in all seasons, offering scenic rides through farm country and nonstop sledding on Elk River snowmobile trails. Make the most of your visit by staying at a unique B&B or guest inn, such as the Wylie Lauder House, Peterson Barn Guesthouse, or Meadowinds Bed and Breakfast.

TIMBER COUNTRY

Moscow

The rolling fields of the Palouse give way to mountain meadows and stands of giant cedar, tamarack, and fir as you head into timber country. Take a day’s drive along Highways 8, 9, 6, and 3 through the sleepy towns of Troy, Princeton, Harvard, and Santa. Route 6 bisects St. Joe National Forest, home to large elk herds, trout streams, and wildlands. Out on Highway 8, a gentle trail leads to the spectacular Elk Creek Falls. You’ll find camping, hunting, and snowmobiling adventures around almost every turn!

LEWISTON

Payette National Forest

Hells Canyon

Let Lewiston be home base for your north central Idaho excursions. Here, where the Snake and Clearwater rivers meet, you’ll find quaint eateries in a historic, tree-lined downtown and, just a few miles south, a look at one of history’s ultimate adventures at the Lewis and Clark Discovery Center. Hells Gate State Park offers kayak rentals for leisurely paddling, or try to spot otters and hawks as you walk or ride the park’s riverside trail. Consider visiting Lewiston in April, when the town celebrates spring with its month-long dogwood festival. In May, student athletes from across the U.S. compete in the AvistaNAIA World Series on the Lewis-Clark State College campus. Throughout the summer, catch live music in downtown’s Brackenbury Square. Come September, it’s time to get rowdy with the Lewiston Roundup, three days of professional rodeo action. October brings Art Walk, a fun night of local art and music downtown. Year-round, check out memorabilia from revered Outdoor Life magazine writer Jack O’Connor at his Hunting Heritage & Education Center, located within Hells Gate State Park.

Definitely put Hells Canyon on your must-see list. The rugged landscape along North America’s deepest river gorge—carved by the 1,000-mile Snake—is astounding, whether you drive its winding roads, take a jet boat tour, or angle for monster fish. Guided boat tours leave from Lewiston, White Bird, and Hells Canyon Dam. If you prefer to float, find an outfitter to take you through Class IV and V rapids. Drivers, be sure to take in the scenery at roadside beaches.

OROFINO Alongside this small town runs the Clearwater River, where you’ll be landing salmon and steelhead in some of the prettiest waters around. Just north is Dworshak State Park and the forested, 54-mile reservoir of the same name. Camp, swim, boat, and fish for kokanee all around the reservoir, and swing by the 700-foot Dworshak Dam, the third highest in the U.S. Cold weather brings more ways to play—ski Bald Mountain, ride hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails, and get cozy in a cabin. If you’re a history buff, stop at the Clearwater Historical Museum in Orofino and the Bradbury Memorial Logging Museum in nearby Pierce. Drive the Gold Rush Historic Byway through the Weippe Prairie, where the Nez Perce sheltered the Lewis and Clark expedition. You can learn more about this encounter and the Nez Perce’s history on the prairie at the Weippe Discovery Center. Each August, Pierce throws a big party, the 1860 Days Celebration, to commemorate its history as Idaho’s first gold-rush town. September brings Orofino Lumberjack Days, steeped in the town’s timber “tree-dition.”

30 ‹ EXPLORE IDAHO PARKS!


CAMAS PRAIRIE East of Lewiston on Highway 95, learn about the Nez Perce at the Nez Perce National Historic Park visitor center. The national park preserves many of the Nez Perce Tribe’s important and sacred sites, 26 of which are in Idaho along the Route 95 corridor. After driving through the picturesque Lapwai Creek Canyon, with its wooden railroad trestles, you’ll emerge onto the farmlands of the Camas Prairie, named for the delicate blue flower that blankets its meadows each year. For a unique overnight stay, book a yurt in Winchester Lake State Park. Tour the nearby Wolf Education and Research Center, where you might catch a glimpse of a member of the Owyhee Pack. Continue to Cottonwood, where the Dog Bark Park Inn stands as one of Idaho’s most unusual bed and breakfasts. One of Idaho’s oldest museums, the Historical Museum at St. Gertrude, is also near Cottonwood. It’s a beautiful spot to stretch your legs— and once you see its sweeping prairie views, you’ll be tempted to stay at the adjoining inn. Book a stay for early August during the Raspberry Festival, an annual fundraiser for the museum. Also in August, watch traditional dancers perform at the Chief Looking Glass Powwow in Kamiah.

kayakers, and jet boaters as Idaho’s whitewater capital. Extreme thrill seekers and young families alike can experience the trip of a lifetime down this stretch of deep, forested canyons, high basalt cliffs, and sandy white beaches. You’ll find many experienced outfitters to take you downriver in the outdoorsy town of Riggins. Riggins kicks off whitewater season in early June with the Big Water Blow Out River Festival—a day of discounted trips and riverside events. You can launch into another famous Idaho river, the Snake, from Pittsburg Landing near White Bird for access to Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Be sure to stop at Heaven’s Gate for panoramic views of Hells Canyon and the Salmon River Canyon—but first, check roadway conditions for FS 517, as you’ll be climbing to above 8,000 feet.

St. Gertrude’s Monastery

Salmon River

If you fish, you’d better be in the Riggins area each spring and fall for plentiful salmon and steelhead runs. Also in the spring, watch racers from the U.S. and Canada rev it up on the River of No Return during the Salmon River Jet Boat Races. Enjoy a small-town rodeo at White Bird Days in June. And in October, head to the Salmon River Art Guild’s annual fall show in Riggins. River Dance Lodge

A bit south, Grangeville welcomes you to summer whitewater trips, fall hunting getaways, and winter snowmobiling. Around the Fourth of July, catch Grangeville Border Days, Idaho’s oldest rodeo. Wow the kids with a stop at the visitor center, which houses a replica of the Tolo Lake Mammoth unearthed nearby. For true Idaho backcountry, drive Highway 14 through Nez Perce National Forest to Elk City or Dixie. Book an all-inclusive whitewater or fishing vacation at the River Dance Lodge on the banks of the Clearwater in Kooskia. Further east, base a whitewater adventure out of Three Rivers Resort & Rafting, a friendly campground/motel/cabin setting.

RECREATION

Wildlife

Water Play

› North central Idaho is home to hundreds of species, so pack the binoculars! Elk, deer, black bear, and smaller critters like river otter and grouse live throughout the area’s thousands of acres of wilderness. In Hells Canyon, be on the lookout for mountain goats, cougars, and bald and golden eagles. Winter is the best time to see large herds of elk and bighorn sheep feeding near the riverbanks and lower meadows. Any of the national recreation areas, wildlife management areas, and state parks offer a front-row seat to Idaho’s wild side.

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

› Rivers rule this region. The Lochsa, Selway, Clearwater, and Salmon all rush down from the Continental Divide to join the Snake at Lewiston. These big waters bring big fish, especially steelhead, the enormous first cousin of the rainbow trout. Pretty much any drive in this pristine section of Idaho reveals a secluded spot to cast a line for Chinook and kokanee salmon, blue-ribbon trout, and bass. If you’re ready to reel in something you can really brag about, head to Hells Canyon for giant sturgeon.

32

› You can tell by the names of this area’s whitewater destinations— Hells Canyon, the River of No Return— that action awaits. Our world-class whitewater rivers traverse remote wilderness, power through deep canyons, and meander past dramatic peaks and forested shores. And where there’s water, there’s wildlife, so keep an eye out for mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and black bears.

Views from Above › Take in north central Idaho’s most dramatic peaks, rivers, and canyons from the air. Salmon River Helicopter Tours, flying from just outside Riggins, makes trips over Hells Canyon, the Salmon River Canyon, Seven Devils, and Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness.

Snow Sports › North central Idaho does winter right. If you love quiet, try the Palouse Divide Nordic Ski Area near Moscow or Winchester State Park (rent a yurt as a wintry home base). But if you’re into speed, take your pick of endless snowmobile trails throughout the entire region, including Dworshak Reservoir, Elk City, and Bald Mountain Lookout near Orofino. A great snow season means good riding until late April and even into May in Clearwater County.

HISTORY Lewis and Clark › Imagine making your way through 200-plus miles of some of the country’s most rugged mountain terrain—with scarce food and water, and clothing not warm enough to shield against cold—right at the onset of an Idaho winter. That’s just what the Lewis and Clark expedition did in 11 days in 1805, along what’s now celebrated as the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway (Highway 12). This breathtaking route winds along the Lochsa and Clearwater rivers, both of which hold National Wild and Scenic River status, and the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. The travelers arrived weary and starving at Weippe Prairie, where the

Nez Perce Tribe fed and sheltered them. Considered the most hospitable tribe the party encountered, the Nez Perce had lived, hunted, harvested camas roots, and fished in this area for thousands of years. The Nez Perce creation story begins at the Heart of the Monster, along the byway in Kamiah. To discover more about Nez Perce history and culture, stop at any one of the 38 sites in the Nez Perce National Historical Park, or visit the park’s headquarters in Spalding. Find out more about the expedition at the Lewis and Clark Discovery Center at Hells Gate State Park in Lewiston.

NATURAL ATTRACTIONS GIVE IN TO


Payette Lake

T

raveling in southwest Idaho is like

packing lots of super-fun vacations into one. Within a few hours’ drive, you can hike through evergreen forests to remote alpine lakes or spy antelope roaming the high-country desert—or in just minutes, move from bustling city life to farmlands and fruit orchards. It’s the kind of place where you start your morning with a pint of local berries from a downtown farmers market, hit the trails or the whitewater, and head back in plenty of time to grab a bite and watch a play. Definitely seek out local Idaho food and wines—both are receiving the same high acclaim that the region’s recreational offerings have long enjoyed. In fact, southwest Idaho’s ideal grape-growing conditions have led to the designation of two American Viticultural Areas—so put a winery tour on your short list. Plan to spend time in Boise, Idaho’s capital city, for a lively arts and culture scene, river and foothills fun, and Boise State University games. Boise’s also a central hub for day trips to scenic spots like McCall, Cascade, and Idaho City to the north—and Silver City, sand dunes, and the world’s most dense concentration of nesting birds of prey just to the south.

SOUTHWEST IDAHO ‹ COMPLIMENTARY GOOSEBUMPS INCLUDED CJ Strike Reservoir

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

VALLEY & ADAMS COUNTY When one of the main roads through an entire region is a national scenic byway, you know you’re somewhere special. That’s the case here, where Idaho 55 doubles as the Payette River Scenic Byway, a route that takes you past dramatic whitewater, farmland, and meadows, and through high-walled, forested canyons. Its northern tip begins in New Meadows, where—just two miles north along Route 95—you can stand on the 45th parallel halfway between the North Pole and the equator. While you’re here, tee off at MeadowCreek Golf Resort, where the course winds through meadows and towering pines and delivers a view of Granite Mountain to the northeast. Zims Hot Springs is a favorite destination for locals—so pre- or post-touring, relax in the 104° soaking tub and let the kids splash away in the slightly cooler Olympic-size pool. At New Meadows, you’ll hit a fork in the road, and each way leads to awesome adventures. (We recommend trying both!) If you take US 95 south, you’ll

roll into the small town of Cambridge, the southern gateway to Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge. From Cambridge, go west on Idaho 71 and connect with the 22-mile Hells Canyon Scenic Byway for one of the most stunning drives around. You’ll curve along the Snake River, below picturesque cliffs, atop high desert ridges, and past Oxbow and Hells Canyon reservoirs before arriving at Hells Canyon Dam. If you’re up for action, book a rafting or jet boat trip with any of the area’s experienced outfitters.

Payette River

Should you choose Idaho 55 from New Meadows, you’ll be welcomed by the mountain resort town of McCall. McCall sits quietly on the shores of Payette Lake, and it’s one of those casual places you love to visit all year round. In summer, you can water and jet ski, canoe, kayak, and sail the lake, or just hang out and play on one of the city’s sandy beaches. Keep an eye out for resident lake monster Sharlie when you take a scenic jaunt with McCall Lake Cruises; the sunset cruise is a pretty spectacular way to spend an evening. Since you’re on vacation, treat yourself to a sunny afternoon on the greens—you’ve got

your choice of the challenging Jug Mountain Ranch, three scenic courses at the McCall Golf Club, and, for guests of Shore Lodge, the Whitetail Club. If you like to camp, reserve a spot or cabin at Ponderosa State Park and play the days away within its 1,500 acres. The park has a beach and boat launch area, and you can rent kayaks to paddle Payette Lake. End your afternoon with mouthwatering, mountain-sized scoops from Ice Cream Alley downtown.

McCall

Mid-July, head to the tiny nearby town of Roseberry for its annual Summer Music Festival—two days of happy music on a general store lawn. In the July/August time frame, enjoy classical chamber music and jazz concerts during McCall’s SummerFest.

Payette Lake

In winter, hit Brundage Mountain Resort’s 1,500 acres of ski and snowboard terrain. At the Activity Barn, Brundage’s tubing hill just south of McCall, you and your kids can race down 700 feet of pure awesome; they might also enjoy the smaller, T-bar-served Little Ski Hill off Idaho 55 a few miles from town. If you’ve got strong ankles, lace up for some laps around the rink at the Manchester Ice and Event Centre in downtown McCall, open year-round. And, no matter what, bundle up for McCall’s Winter Carnival in late January/early February, a fun week of snow sculptures, snow bike races, tastings, and lots of family fun. South of McCall is Lake Cascade, a spot popular among the boating, fishing, and camping set. Claim a site along the shore within Lake Cascade State Park and head out for a day on the water. Don’t miss Kelly’s Whitewater Park, just south of Cascade on the North Fork of the Payette, to kayak, surf, paddleboard—or take it easy in a tube.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, take a zip-line tour high above Tamarack Resort, on the west side of Lake Cascade near the small town of Donnelly. Up the adrenaline by riding the single-track or downhill trails in Tamarack’s Bike Park, which is liftserved on weekends. You’ll definitely deserve a long, mineral-rich soak under the pines at Gold Fork Hot Springs. Come winter, stir it up in the open meadows near the southern end of Cascade Reservoir, some of the best snowmobiling country around. Hit Tamarack for a relaxed alpine, cross-country, or snowshoe experience.

IDAHO CITY Idaho City is a classic Old West town. Back in its heyday—gold was discovered here in 1862—it was actually the Pacific Northwest’s biggest city, home to thousands of miners and a center of regional commerce. You’ll be able to imagine what mining life was like here as you walk its wooden sidewalks past Idaho’s first newspaper building, an old jail, a general store, and other rustic buildings. Explore artifacts in the Boise Basin Museum, browse antique stores, and relax with a huckleberry ice cream cone or a cold beverage in a saloon right out of the 1860s.

BOISE Boise used to be one of the West’s best-kept secrets—now, it seems to be a permanent fixture on “Best Cities” lists. You’ll find a mix of beautiful scenery, easily accessible outdoor recreation, abundant culture, and friendly residents.

Boise’s vibrant downtown spans a few small sections—the main historic district that runs along Main and Idaho Streets; BoDo, a newer area with bigname retailers; and the Basque Block, a charming street that highlights Idaho’s Basque heritage. The Linen District on the western end of downtown is worth the walk for the popular Big City Coffee and the Modern Hotel, where a crowd gathers on summer evenings for cocktails and music on the patio. The Boise State University campus is close to downtown, and trust us, you’ll know when it’s game day here—the Broncos have some of the most loyal fans ever. The university is also a hub for the performing arts; its Morrison Center is home base for the Boise Philharmonic and Ballet Idaho. As you walk downtown, feel free to go in the Idaho State Capitol Building to view its state history exhibits. You can easily walk to many of Boise’s museums and culturally significant sites from downtown, including the Boise Art Museum and the Idaho Black History Museum, both located in Julia Davis Park. (The Idaho Historical Museum is closed through 2017, but a temporary location is open to visitors at 214 Broadway Avenue.) The Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial is also close by, a tranquil space on the Boise River that encourages discussion and reflection. Visit the Basque Museum and Cultural Center to learn about the colorful history of the Basques in Idaho. See the graceful mansions built by the city’s early residents along Warm Springs Avenue on your way to the Idaho Botanical Garden and the Old Idaho Penitentiary. During spring, summer, and fall, life is lived outside—and much of that happens on or near the Boise River. This gem winds through the city, and you can access it in many of the riverfront parks; walk, jog, and bike along its banks on the 25-mile Greenbelt; and fish its waters for rainbow trout. It’s tradition to float the river on a hot day, so head to Barber Park to rent a raft that will take you on a leisurely trip downriver to the Ann Morrison Park takeout. Bring your gear, or rent gear from a local provider, and kayak or surf the waves at the Boise River Park

on the west end of town. Eagle Island State Park, 11 miles west of downtown, is another fun summer spot, with a beach, a water slide, and plenty of shade for picnicking. In the summer, there’s really no such thing as downtime in Boise. You can take in minor-league baseball games, rodeos, and road-bike races (much of Boise turns out to cheer on the Twilight Criterium racers who wind through downtown streets at breakneck speeds). Pick up produce and handmade wares at Boise’s two farmers markets on Saturday mornings, and join locals for music at Alive After Five on Wednesday evenings. Throughout the year, the Boise area hosts an eclectic slate of entertainment: the Treefort Music Fest in March, the Idaho Botanical Garden’s summer concert series, and outdoor performances by the Idaho Shakespeare Festival (wine and picnics encouraged). In September, hundreds of northwestern artisans set up shop for Art in the Park at Julia Davis Park and, in winter, Opera Idaho captivates audiences from its home base at the historic Egyptian Theater. The first Thursday of each month, downtown galleries and shops keep their doors open late for special events and extra browsing time.

Downtown Boise


SOUTHWEST IDAHO

If you love the stage, catch productions by the Boise Contemporary Theater, Knock ’em Dead Dinner Theatre, Boise Little Theater, Alley Repertory Theatre, or Boise State’s Theatre Arts Department. In winter, hit Bogus Basin, the local ski hill that’s only 15 miles from downtown, or watch the Idaho Steelheads tear up the ice at a pro hockey game. If you’re visiting in early winter, prepare to be dazzled at Winter Garden Aglow, when the Idaho Botanical Garden strings more than 250,000 lights among its trees and gardens.

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

Wildlife watchers will enjoy the Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey’s interpretive displays and talks. Its Condor Cliffs is one of the only places in the U.S. outside of California to view condors. In spring, head south to the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area to see winged predators soar high above the Snake River. Anytime, explore the Idaho Fish and Game MK Nature Center to see fish (including sturgeon!) and waterfowl species in natural habitats. This is an especially fun spot for kids.

44

When you’re ready to nosh, you’ll find tons of downtown eateries, from Bacon, a cozy breakfast and lunch spot, to casual favorites like Bittercreek, Fork, and Bardenay. The modern State & Lemp pairs northwestern foods and wines on its prix fixe menu; Chandler’s offers fine steaks and seafood; and Barbacoa serves up gourmet appetizers and eclectic fine dining. Of course, you’ll want to try Basque cuisine at one of Boise’s authentic restaurants: Leku Ona, Bar Gernika, or the Basque Market. In the Orchard Street area, grab a gyro at Bosnia Express or noodles at Wok-Inn Noodle. If you’re overnighting in Boise, you have many lodging options right in the heart of downtown. You’ll feel immediately at home at the Boise Guest House, the stylish Hotel 43, the retro Modern Hotel, or the brand-new Inn at 500 Capitol.

GARDEN VALLEY/LOWMAN Garden Valley and Lowman are small communities much loved by the hikers, bikers, kayakers, and rafters who play

The Springs

in the area. They both sit along the Wildlife Canyon Scenic Byway, a lovely ride through pastoral lands and the steep canyon carved by the South Fork of the Payette. In summer months, rent a riverside cabin, soak in the area’s many hot springs, and attend a musical at Starlight Mountain Theatre. In winter, look for elk herds near the Danskin river access.

Silver City

WESTERN BOISE VALLEY Tour the broad valley west of Boise and you’ll find yourself in a rich agricultural region. Growers produce cherries, apples, and other fruits in the area’s many orchards, plus veggies, hops, and wine grapes. You can taste what’s fresh at farmers markets in the cities of Nampa, Caldwell, and Kuna, and at roadside produce stands. The small town of Emmett holds its annual Cherry Festival in June, and you can pick your own fragrant bouquets during the Lavender Festival each July. Spend an afternoon touring the region’s wineries to taste why they’re enjoying so much national attention. Meridian and Eagle are fast-growing neighbors of Boise, each with familyfriendly neighborhoods and great golf courses. If you’re here with kids, spend a day splashing at Roaring Springs Water Park in Meridian and playing mini golf at the adjacent Wahooz Family Fun Zone. Catch a movie, bowl, or shop at The Village at Meridian. For super speed, check out the Meridian Speedway or Star’s Firebird Raceway, and for rides, music, and games, have a blast at the Western Idaho State Fair in August. If you like things truly wild, walk the nature trails at Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge at Lake Lowell west of Nampa to observe migrating waterfowl and songbirds.

Bruneau Dunes State Park

Melba


Caldwell and Nampa both celebrate summer with boot-stompin’ fun, when professional cowboys come to town to compete in rodeos. Nampa’s Snake River Stampede happens in July, and the Caldwell Night Rodeo gets going in August. If you enjoy history, visit the Warhawk Air Museum in Nampa to see vintage World War II planes and artifacts. Williamson Vineyards

In June, see musicians pluck and bow their hearts out at the National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest in the small town of Weiser. The event, more than 60 years young, is a laid-back, feel-good outing for all ages.

ELMORE COUNTY

CJ Strike Reservoir

Climb, slide, laugh (and repeat) as you attempt to make it 470 feet uphill at Bruneau Dunes State Park, located 18 miles west of Mountain Home. If that doesn’t sound fun, there’s still lots to do here, like camping, swimming, fishing, and—on Friday and Saturday nights—stargazing at the observatory. Outside the park along Hot Springs Road, gaze down into the impressive 1,200-foot-deep Bruneau Canyon. Two area reservoirs—CJ Strike and Anderson Ranch Dam—promise an adventurous day of fishing, boating, and swimming. You can camp at CJ Strike, and in winter, snowmobile and kiteboard the open country and rolling hills around Anderson Ranch Dam. A detour at Glenns Ferry brings you to Three Island Crossing State Park, located near a significant Oregon Trail river crossing. The onsite Oregon Trail History and Education Center highlights stories from the largest mass migration in

American history and the native tribes who inhabited the area at the time. Stop by the nearby Crossings Winery for a tasting, and spend some downtime on the Vineyard Greens Golf Course.

OWYHEE COUNTY High desert and deep river gorges form the magnificent landscape of Owyhee County. Experience these colorful canyonlands up close by booking a river trip on the Bruneau or Owyhee rivers during spring runoff—when rapids are at their peak and wildflowers are in full bloom. Set aside some time to get to and explore the historic mining town of Silver City high in the Owyhee Mountains. Take a relaxed stroll to its pioneer cemetery, the old Masonic Hall, and other original structures, then grab lunch or dinner at the old Idaho Hotel, built in 1863. If you plan ahead, you can actually still stay at the hotel! (Before you drive to Silver City, check road conditions; high-clearance vehicles are recommended year round.) Further east, near Grandview, stop at Lawson’s Emu-Z-Um, a former emu ranch that now houses authentic replicas of an 1860s-era town, Native American artifacts, and the Silver City Schoolhouse Museum. Pack a swimsuit so you and the kids can splash and soak in the indoor mineral pool at Givens Hot Springs—and if you bring a tent, too, there’s plenty of room to camp. In spring, look for nesting hawks, owls, and eagles high up in the cliffs at the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. You can also hike, bike, and camp in the area’s 485,000 acres.

RECREATION

Trails & Zips

Water Play

› Head for the hills—on foot or in the saddle—when you’re in Boise. The city’s foothills frame the northern edge of town and are full of great hiking and mountain biking trails accessible from parks and many neighborhoods. For steeper terrain, head to Bogus Basin, Brundage, or Tamarack resorts—all open year-round for biking, hiking, and snow sports.

› Take your pick of plentiful waters— Payette Lake and Cascade, Lucky Peak, Arrowrock, and Anderson Ranch reservoirs—for boating, fishing, canoeing, and Jet Ski adventures. For a quiet backcountry experience, hike to the upper reaches of the Payette and Boise national forests to enjoy a rugged alpine lake all to yourself. › Book a scenic whitewater trip on one of the forks of the Payette River, or surf and practice your tricks at two man-made wave parks: Kelly’s Whitewater Park near Cascade or Boise River Park near Whitewater Park Boulevard in Boise. In the heat of summer, float the Boise River from Barber Park to Ann Morrison Park.

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

Sports

46

› Batter, batter, swing—right into Boise’s many sports venues for fierce loyalty, pro talent, and cold beer. A Boise Hawks baseball game at Memorial Stadium in nearby Garden City is a rite of summer. In fall and winter, feel a cold blast of adrenaline when you cheer on the Steelheads hockey team, which takes its fight to the ice at CenturyLink. You’ve probably heard about Boise State’s blue turf and Broncos football team, so see what the fuss is all about at a home game.

Albertsons Stadium

› For an easy, kid-friendly hike, try the exercise trail around the airport in Idaho City; they’ll love the trees, water, and possibility of an icecream cone reward in town afterward. › Take a walk you won’t soon forget at Walter’s Ferry, where an unusual nature trail winds through an eclectic assortment of birdhouses, statues, spiritual symbols, and a flock of white peacocks. › If you’re ever going to zip, you should do it here, above meadows, lakes, and ponderosa pine forests. Try Tamarack Canopy Zipline Tour near Donnelly—it’s been voted a Top 10 tour by USA Today. If you’re closer to Horseshoe Bend, Zip Idaho will have you up above the treeline in no time.

A PERFECT LOCATION FOR THE

ADVENTURING SPIRIT


City of Rocks National Reserve

E

arly settlers found the Snake River Plain

a bit too dry for their taste, so they set about building a dam and irrigation canals along the Snake River. These structures so dramatically changed the landscape—turning arid, cracked soil into fertile agricultural fields—that the area became known as the “Magic Valley.” Everywhere you look, you’ll see evidence of the earth’s forces at work: deep canyons, high bluffs, unusual rock formations, and even lava flows. Sure, this area is a geologist’s dream, but its terrain also delivers big fun for the adventurer in you. The Snake River is at the heart of the valley’s recreation, inviting you to swim, raft, speedboat, and paddle its waters, and BASE jump and zip-line into its stunning canyon. The river’s reservoirs are pristine destinations for camping, hunting, and fishing—and are home to an abundance of big game and other wildlife. Throughout the region, see springs surge from within cliff walls and thundering waterfalls crash and churn into canyons. Wander through lava tubes, discover world-famous fossil beds, and eat homemade ice cream. Take a relaxing drive through Hagerman’s peaceful countryside and make your way to City of Rocks National Reserve, where granite columns and spires stand guard over a 500-acre windswept valley.

SOUTH CENTRAL IDAHO ‹ ADVENTURES AS DRAMATIC AS THE

LANDSCAPE

City of Rocks

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

HAGERMAN VALLEY The valley around Hagerman was the place to be during the Pliocene Epoch (that’s about 3.5 million years ago). The area holds the richest fossil deposits of the period, including the oldest fossils anywhere of Equus, the genus that includes modern horses. You can see a replica of the “Hagerman Horse” at the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument visitor center on Main Street downtown and, depending on the season, take a ranger-led tour of the beds. Ask at the visitor center about hiking, biking, and horseback riding in the monument. To see the valley’s incredible mix of geological features and rural farmlands, drive the Thousand Springs Scenic Byway, which begins in Bliss and drops down into the Snake River Canyon. Near Hagerman, you’ll see the Thousand Springs area, where waters from the Snake River Plain aquifer tumble from canyon walls. The springs’ cool temperatures are ideal for rearing trout—in fact, most of the trout eaten in the U.S. come from this valley. You’re welcome to tour the Hagerman National Fish Hatchery, producer of steelhead

and rainbow trout. While you’re in the area, visit Ritter Island, one of the units of Thousand Springs State Park. Ritter Island, which sits along the Snake River between two springs, is a lush haven for wildlife, especially heron, golden eagles, and prairie falcon. If you continue south along the scenic byway, you’ll head into the western Magic Valley at Buhl, a charming little town with a thriving arts community. Detour south past Castleford, and you’ll see an awesome sight—Balanced Rock. This giant wind-carved rock is 48 feet high and weighs 40 tons, and it stands precariously on a tiny rock pedestal. Take a picnic and hike up to the rock from the nearby Balanced Rock Park.

Balanced Rock

If you’re driving the Hagerman Valley along I-84, stop at Malad Gorge to see the Malad River rushing into a steep 250-foot canyon on its way to the Snake River. Walk the bridge for a great view of the Devils Washbowl waterfalls. From I-84, access several units of the Thousand Springs State Park, including Billingsley Creek (grab your fishing rod), the 350-acre Earl M. Hardy Box Canyon Springs Preserve, with a 20-foot waterfall and crystal-clear springs,

and Niagara Springs, which offers an amazingly rugged drive into the canyon.

BASE Jumping

In Hagerman, stop for lunch or dinner at the Snake River Grill, where innovative chef Kirt Martin and his staff prepare wild game and locally grown catfish and trout with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Continue your culinary adventure with a tasting at the organic Thousand Springs Winery. In Buhl, treat the kids to homemade ice cream at Cloverleaf Creamery, where you can try scoops in unusual flavors like black licorice and vanilla cloverleaf.

TWIN FALLS

Thousand Springs

On the south rim of the Snake River Canyon sits Twin Falls, the Magic Valley’s largest city. You might remember that Evel Knievel tried to jump the Snake River Canyon in 1974 on his special “rocket” motorcycle; he didn’t make it very far, but the attempt was impressive nonetheless, considering the canyon is a 1/4 a mile wide and 500 feet deep in that spot. You’ll find awesome views of the canyon at the visitor center on the southwest side of the Perrine Bridge, where you’ll also likely see BASE jumpers in action, parachuting into the canyon. Stroll to the east side of the bridge to admire a sculpture called The Twins by Coeur d’Alene artist David Clemons. If you look down, you’ll see two golf courses and Centennial Park, a great spot for taking photos of the bridge, picnicking, boating, and fishing. At Shoshone Falls Park, catch an amazing view of waterfalls cascading 212 feet down from the rim of the canyon; the falls are actually slightly taller than Niagara Falls—so a selfie is probably in order here. (The falls are most stunning during spring runoff; ask at the visitor center about current water flow.) There’s a lot more

to do around here than just look at the canyon, though. Amp up your adventure by rafting or kayaking the Snake River’s many rapids, especially in the exciting Murtaugh section. Or rent a kayak at Centennial Park and paddle below the Perrine Bridge toward Pillar Falls and climb on the basalt pillars. There’s also indoor adventure here. Kids will enjoy the fossils and Native American artifacts—and the 50-foot planetarium dome—at the Herrett Center on the College of Southern Idaho campus. Downtown, enjoy quaint shops like Rudy’s—A Cook’s Paradise, or treat yourself to a crepe and a latte at Twin Beans Coffee. See what it was like to live in the Magic Valley long ago at the Twin Falls County Historical Museum, and, in nearby Jerome, at the Idaho Farm & Ranch Museum and Jerome County Historical Museum. In Hansen, take a self-guided tour of Rock Creek Station, a preserved settlement that once served as a transportation center on the Oregon Trail. Near Jerome, you can visit the Minidoka National Historic Site, where thousands of Japanese-Americans were interned during World War II. Twin Falls’ culinary options range from the down-home, always-bustling Buffalo Café to the more upscale Canyon Crest and Elevation 486—both on the canyon rim, where stunning views complement outstanding menus. If you’re near Shoshone between May and September, cool off underground at the Shoshone Ice Caves. The “cave” is actually a lava tube with a year-round ice floor. Bring a sweater; even in summer, the 45-minute tour can be

chilly. You can take a self-guided tour of another lava tube at the nearby Mammoth Cave; it’s not icy but it shares a location with the very unusual Shoshone Bird Museum.

BURLEY/RUPERT When you’re ready to play, head to Burley, where locals enjoy access to 20plus miles of Snake River shoreline. You can swim, fish, water-ski, wakeboard, and windsurf here; a lot of the action starts at the public docks and ramps at Riverfront Park and Freedom Park. Be here in June for the Idaho Regatta, when the world’s best flat-bottom boat racers converge on the Snake River for three days of crowd-pleasing speed. Northeast of Burley is the town of Rupert, whose town square is adorned by the beautifully restored Wilson Theatre— now a gathering place to see movies, plays, and live music. Rupert was actually was one of the first cities in the world to have streets lit by electricity; you can learn more about its past at the Minidoka Historical Museum. Get your binoculars out for a trip to the nearby Minidoka National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses about 80 miles of shoreline around Lake Walcott. The water and wetlands here attract more than 200 species of birds, so be on the lookout for American white pelican, blue heron, and cormorant. You might also see antelope, coyote, beavers, and lots and lots of reptiles. The best part? You can camp and fish right in the middle of it—Lake Walcott State Park on the northwest end of the lake offers developed facilities and a boat ramp. In your travels, you’ve no doubt seen dramatic canyon lands and perhaps some fossils, but there’s even more cool (actually, hot) stuff going on in south central Idaho. Stop in the Mini-Cassia Chamber of Commerce visitor center in Heyburn to hear about the Great Rift, the most recent volcanic rift in the U.S., extending more than 65 miles across the Snake River Plain. It’s one of only two such geologic features on earth and, at 635 square miles, it’s the largest and deepest. Over the past 115,000 years, its lava flows have created ice caves—like those in Shoshone—and spatter cones and cinder cones, which you can see in the

Craters of the Moon area. Whether you like geology or just being in a majestic place, take a drive south of Burley to Castle Rocks State Park and City of Rocks National Reserve. Here, granite spires and columns 60 stories high create one of the most dramatic skylines you’ll ever see. More than 700 charted routes await rock climbers—this is renowned granite-crag territory—and the unusual landscape just begs to be explored on foot, mountain bike, or horseback. The City of Rocks is also an important California Trail landmark; if you look closely, you can see where many emigrants wrote their names on the rocks and spires.

Oakley

On the way to City of Rocks, take a quick tour of Oakley, a town founded by Mormon emigrants in 1878. The entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its collection of stone and brick buildings. In winter, enjoy a laid-back snow day at Pomerelle Mountain Resort. Located near Albion, this family-owned resort is especially inviting for kids just learning to ski or snowboard. If snowmobiling’s more your speed, you’ll find terrain at the Mt. Harrison and Howell Canyon areas and a parking lot with a warming shelter about a half mile below Pomerelle’s base parking lot. In summer, take a chairlift ride for downhill mountain biking or hiking.

HISTORY Oregon Trail › Before the railroad was completed in 1869, more than half a million people walked through Idaho on the Oregon Trail as part of the greatest migration in American history. Emigrants also used alternative trails that traversed southern Idaho, including the California Trail.

You can see where intrepid pioneers inscribed their names in axle grease on the great spires at City of Rocks. Many crossed the Snake River in south central Idaho at either Thousand Springs or Three Island Crossing near Glenns Ferry.

s you explore southeast Idaho, it’s

easy to imagine the people who ventured here before you—native tribes who lived all across these lands, fur trappers, pioneers heading west to start a new life, the men who built and rode the railroads. You’ll be able to connect with the past throughout the region and—even better— create your own new memories. Visit the Idaho Museum of Natural History to learn about Idaho’s indigenous people; experience the pioneer journey at The National Oregon/California Trail Center in Montpelier; and see Register Rock, where pioneers inscribed their names as they passed through. If you’ve got kids in the car, take them to a rodeo in Preston, go water skiing at the dazzling Bear Lake, and camp out in Caribou National Forest. Soak in some of the West’s best hot springs, reel in cutthroat trout, and take in a performance at Idaho State University in Pocatello. Anywhere these Old West roads go, you’ll find new adventures waiting for you. For more southeast Idaho adventures, go to

Lava Hot Springs

AMERICAN FALLS

FORT HALL RESERVATION

In 1925, the entire town of American Falls was moved to make room for the American Falls Dam. There was one exception—the Oneida Milling grain elevator was too large and its foundation too deep to go anywhere, so you’ll see it still standing picturesquely next to the waterfalls today. Have a day of adventure at the dam’s reservoir, a popular spot to swim, boat, and reel in trout, crappie, and perch. There are several boat ramps north of the reservoir, and you can camp at Willow Bay and Sportsman’s Park. For more water fun, rent a kayak or fish the shores at the nearby Massacre Rocks State Park, named for a skirmish between emigrants and members of the Shoshone Tribe. This pretty park is home to a portion of the Oregon Trail and hiking trails, and provides a habitat for blue herons, pelicans, and bald eagles. Take a drive south to see Red Rock Pass, the spillway for the great Bonneville Flood, the second largest flood event of all time.

Until the 1860s, when the Fort Hall Reservation was established as their permanent home, the Shoshone and Bannock tribes lived, fished, and hunted throughout the West. Visit the Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Museum to learn their stories, and attend the annual Shoshone-Bannock Festival in August to experience one of North America’s most popular tribal gatherings. Enjoy traditional dancing, Indian relay races, a rodeo, and arts and crafts. See if luck’s on your side at the Fort Hall Casino, and stay the night at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel.

Pocatello Bench

POCATELLO/CHUBBUCK During the days of the Oregon Trail, Pocatello was called “Gate City” by many travelers who considered it the official start of the West. Today’s Pocatello continues to be a gateway to all kinds of adventure—and its charm and convenience make it a great place to stay as you explore the region. Start by strolling the beautiful Old Town district, an eclectic mix of eateries, antique stores, and shops set against a backdrop of high desert foothills.

Lava Zipline Adventure

Soda Springs

Browse work by local artists at the Pocatello Art Center on Main Street. On the Avenue of the Chiefs, open the massive wooden doors of the Fort Hall Replica for a glimpse into what life was like in the original fort that became an important stop along the Oregon Trail. The Museum of Clean tells a different story—that of vacuum cleaners, and cleaning devices and products of all kinds. You’ll find much to explore at the Idaho State University campus, too, including the Idaho Museum of Natural History. The museum’s exhibits focus on Idaho’s geology, fossils, and flora and fauna, and you can even see footprints from mammals that roamed the earth 200 million years ago. For some active kid time, spend an afternoon swimming and splashing at the Ross Park Aquatic Center or saying hi to the grizzlies, bison, and other animals at the Zoo Idaho. Idaho’s oldest symphony, the Idaho State Civic Symphony, performs regularly from fall through spring at the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center. The center hosts many other music, dance, and theater performances as well, so check the schedule while you’re in town. Stop for craft beer, casual fare, and live music at Portneuf Valley Brewing, or make a reservation at one of two dinner theaters: the Palace Playhouse and Events Center and the Westside Players Dinner Theater. The Pocatello area has more than a thousand miles of trails for you to explore on foot, bike, horse, or four-wheeler. Try the 52-mile City Creek Trail System on the west side of town and Caribou National Forest to the south. Spend a night under the stars at the nearby Scout Mountain Campground.

Stephens Performing Arts Center

When the snow falls, ski or board 2,200 feet of vertical terrain at Pebble Creek, or Nordic ski or snowmobile the area’s vast public lands.

LAVA HOT SPRINGS Millions of years ago, the hot spot that’s now deep below Yellowstone National Park was beneath southeast Idaho. What that means, in non-technical terms, is that you’re in the right place for some serious soaking. The largest area, Lava Hot Springs, was once a sacred gathering place for the Bannock and Shoshone tribes. Today, people from all over the world seek out the healing properties of the warm spring water, which is naturally filtered as it moves through five pools. During the summer, you can alternate between the hot springs and the city’s (cool) pool and water slides. Many soakers top off their day with an elegant dinner at the historic Greystone Manor, rated highly by visitors on TripAdvisor. Luxury and history await overnight travelers at the Harkness Hotel in nearby McCammon; this beautifully restored building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, perfectly blends historic details and modern touches for a stay you’ll long remember. If you’re here in February, you’ll be amazed by the number of people brave enough to tube down the freezing Portneuf River in just a costume, as part of Lava Hot Springs’ annual Fire and Ice Winter Fest. The festival also features fire performers, wine tastings, karaoke contests, a chili cook-off, a casino night, and the exciting Running of the Bulls event.

Continue your tour de soak at Downata Hot Springs near Downey for nonstop fun for everyone, with water slides, a splash pad, hillside slides, and volleyball and basketball courts. A little further south near Preston, you can stay overnight at Riverdale Resort (cabins, RVs, camping) and Maple Grove Hot Springs (try a yurt or vintage trailer). You’ll see a different type of water in Soda Springs, a town named for the area’s many carbonated springs. In 1937, entrepreneurs were digging for warm water to create a hot springs pool and instead unleashed a “sparkling water” geyser. City fathers capped the geyser, which has been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and now a timer sends the geyser shooting 70 feet into the air every hour on the hour.

BEAR LAKE Who can resist the dazzling turquoise waters of Bear Lake? Called the “Caribbean of the West” for its intense color, the lake shares its shores with Idaho and Utah, and at 120 square miles (that’s big!), there’s more than enough room for everyone to have fun. So pack your suits and bring the family to swim, water ski, and jet ski (rentals are plentiful in the area). A breeze rolls over the lake in the afternoons, making it an ideal spot to sail. On the north shore sits Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge—home to sandhill cranes, Canada geese, and white-faced ibis, and sometimes even moose. Check with the headquarters in nearby Montpelier for seasonal activities allowed at the refuge. Venture to two units of Bear Lake State Park—on the north and east ends of the lake—for five miles of sandy beaches, boat ramp access to the lake, hiking, and camping. Anglers will undoubtedly reel in their fair share of cutthroat trout and, in winter, can break through lake ice to catch Bonneville cisco, a small fish found nowhere else on earth. When you hit relax mode, soak in great views of the lake from the aboveground pools at Bear Lake Hot Springs.

Tabernacle, built by early Mormon settlers who carted the building’s red sandstone from 18 miles away. It’s recognized as one of the true pioneer landmarks of the West and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For a natural wonder adventure, explore the Minnetonka Cave, full of stalactites and stalagmites, in St. Charles. Tours run mid-June to Labor Day; bring a jacket and be prepared to climb stairs. Be sure to stop at the National Oregon/ California Trail Center in Montpelier to learn more about the pioneers who endured the rugged trip west.

Paris Tabernacle

BLACKFOOT Blackfoot is a small city with a big harvest. It’s literally the potato capital of the world (at least in the russet category)—and proud of it. Learn all about this famous tuber at the Idaho Potato Museum on NW Main Street, where you’ll see old farming equipment, displays about the potato industry, and even a “potatoe” signed by Dan Quayle. Keep your eyes out for T-shirts, potato lotion, and potato fudge at the museum’s Spud Cellar Gift Shop. While you’re in town, play the greens at the beautiful municipal golf course, or explore the Pioneer Historic Byway that winds through the area. Head to Blackfoot Reservoir and Blackfoot River for scenic camping and cutthroat trout fishing.

› Elevate your adventure with a zipline tour over a private canyon near Lava Hot Springs with Lava Zipline Adventures, open year-round.

Snow Sports › There are literally thousands of miles of snowmobile trails in the region, so get set for days of riding near Bear Lake, Preston, and Lava Hot Springs. In Caribou National Forest and the area’s BLM lands alone, you’ll find 600+ miles of groomed trails, plus tons of open space for powdery play. Most local communities offer snowmobile rentals and easy access to trailheads.

Bald Eagle

› When powder hits the hills, ski and board near Pocatello at Pebble Creek, an uncrowded resort with runs for all abilities and some great hike-to terrain. Nordic skiers, take your pick of amazing trails near Mink Creek, the Portneuf Range, and Kelly Park in Soda Springs. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

HISTORY Oregon Trail › The movement of travelers across the Oregon Trail became the greatest migration in American history. Between 1843 and 1869, more than half a million emigrants undertook the arduous journey west. They entered Idaho near Montpelier and headed to Fort Hall for supplies and a much-needed respite. Travelers took varied routes from

here, etching many new trails into the western landscape. You can see where pioneers carved their names into Register Rock near Massacre Rocks State Park and experience a bit of their 2,000-mile journey at the National Oregon/California Trail Center in Montpelier.

E

ast Idaho is a gateway to Yellowstone,

the country’s very first national park— which means this region’s been serving up adventure for a long time. Head here, and you’ll soon be casting in the worldclass fly-fishing waters of the Henrys Fork of the Snake River, hiking in pine forests and lupine meadows, and snowmobiling scenic byways. Venture easily into Grand Teton National Park to observe antelope, trumpeter swans, and many other species native to the area. The Idaho communities of Driggs, Victor, and Tetonia, which sit quietly on the eastern side of the Tetons, are picturesque destinations for adventurers who seek nonstop outdoor action without the crowds. Be sure to experience the small pleasures within this vast vacationland, like an enjoyable ride on Rexburg’s antique carousel, a huckleberry shake in Victor, and a night of old-fashioned family fun at the Spud Drive-In in Driggs. Stop in at a local visitor center or the Teton Geotourism Center in Driggs to pick up a copy of the National Geographic Greater Yellowstone Geotourism map. For more east Idaho adventures, go to

EAST IDAHO ‹ SELFIES NEVER LOOKED SO MAJESTIC Teton Springs

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

IDAHO FALLS Idaho Falls is centrally located to so many amazing destinations that you’re bound to pass through this small city at some point. Take time to stop and explore, and you’ll find that the town’s a wonderful adventure in its own right. The Snake River flows through downtown, and a five-mile greenbelt and several city parks deliver front-row seats to the many sights along its shores—so bring a picnic and stroll or bike the afternoon away. The manmade falls that give the city its name tumble gracefully over a rocky dam on the west bank of the Snake River, and the Idaho Vietnam Veterans Memorial stands tall along the river in Fremont Park. (As you explore the area, try to spot all 39 “sculptural seats.”) Venture indoors to the Museum of Idaho, where kids can crawl through beaver dens and teepees, and you can take in exhibits about Lewis and Clark, the area’s nuclear energy history, and other historical topics. The museum makes spirits bright during its Olde Fashioned Christmas and Winter festivals—come see decorated trees, meet Santa, and

view nativity scenes from around the world. To see history through the lens of an Idaho Falls couple, pop in to the Collector’s Corner Museum for rooms bursting with dolls, antiques, trains, coins, stamps, and military memorabilia. You’ll find inspiration in the Idaho Falls Cultural District—tour artist studios at the Willard Arts Center; create your own masterpiece (including music and videos) at the Artitorium; and take in permanent and popular traveling exhibits at the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho. Spend an afternoon teeing up on one of the city’s four courses, or bring the kids to the Tautphaus Park Zoo; in the evening, catch live music and theater at the Colonial Theater or the Actors’ Repertory Theatre of Idaho.

Snake River Canyon

Grab a casual meal at D’Railed, located in a small, converted house by the railroad; when a train rumbles by, drinks are halfprice. Other local favorites are the burgers and seafood at the SnakeBite, steak and spuds at Jakers, and the inspired cuisine of the Copper Rill. Wander over to Love at First Bite for gourmet cupcakes and a delicious assortment of candies and chocolates.

Yellowstone Bear World

From Idaho Falls, there’s excitement and amazing scenery in every direction. Highway 26 eastbound will take you along the scenic south fork of the Snake River—popular for drift boat fishing— toward the Teton Scenic Byway and the breathtaking Grand Teton Mountains. Highway 20 brings you through the communities of Rexburg, Ashton, and Island Park on your way to Yellowstone National Park. Head west on Highway 20 toward Idaho National Laboratory to see the historical site of EBR-1, America’s first experimental breeder reactor. Interstate 15 continues from east Idaho over Monida Pass into Montana. Along this route, stop in Spencer, the only place in North America where opals are plentiful enough to mine commercially. Several opal mines are open spring through fall—and you can dig for gems yourself or stop in a gift shop for a sparkly Idaho souvenir.

RIGBY/REXBURG

Brown Trout

You know Idaho’s famous for its spuds—but did you know we helped create the couch potato, too? It’s true. If you’re heading to Yellowstone, stop by the Farnsworth TV & Pioneer Museum in Rigby to learn about the invention of television. The museum honors former resident and inventor of the first television picture tube, Philo T. Farnsworth, who developed his initial ideas for the electronic transmission of images while in high school in Rigby. Nearby is the pleasant community of Rexburg, where Brigham Young University–Idaho is located. Rexburg was rebuilt after the Teton Dam burst in 1976, spilling billions of gallons of water into the town. You can see photos and artifacts at the Teton Flood Museum, as well as pioneer relics and an extensive opal and agate collection. The remains of the dam are still standing; to take a look, follow

Highway 33 past Newdale to Teton Dam Road. If you’re traveling with kids, head to Porter Park in Rexburg for a pony ride on the antique Idaho Centennial Carousel. This is Idaho’s only wooden carousel and one of only about 170 still in existence in the United States. It was damaged in the 1976 flood but was restored to celebrate Idaho’s Centennial in 1990. After the ride, let the kids cool off in the park’s splash pad. In July, Rexburg hosts its Idaho International Summerfest—so don’t be surprised if you hear singing in the streets. You’ll see hundreds of dancers and musicians from around the world perform, share their cultural heritage, and even participate in a huge humanitarian service project. Many events are free, and most are interactive—so get in there and show the world what you’ve got. Get wild (from the safety of your car, of course) at Yellowstone Bear World, the area’s only drive-through wildlife park. Just five miles south of Rexburg, you can observe grizzly and black bears in a natural, open setting from spring through fall. If off-roading is your thing, head to St. Anthony Sand Dunes, just north of St. Anthony, for fun in the sun and sand. The Bureau of Land Management manages the dunes mainly for ATV use, so you’ve got one heck of a playground—10,000 acres of shifting white quartz sand.

ISLAND PARK Serious adventure awaits you in Island Park. This recreation area is only 30 miles from Yellowstone’s west entrance, so the beauty of its craggy backdrop, fresh pine forests, and wildflower meadows shouldn’t be a big surprise.

88 ‹ EXPLORE IDAHO PARKS!


Be sure to pack your fly rod, because this is the land of the Henrys Fork of the Snake River, a stretch revered for its outstanding large rainbow and brown trout—and considered by many fly-fishing enthusiasts to be one of the best trout streams in the country. One source of the Henrys Fork is Big Springs, where 120 million gallons of crystal-clear water bubble up into the river each day. You’ll find the springs along the Big Springs Nature Trail, six miles north of the Island Park Ranger Station. The trail traverses rich habitat—so you’ll likely spy osprey, bald eagles, waterfowl, and the occasional moose or muskrat. Henrys Fork creates the 7,000-acre Island Park Reservoir, a haven for boaters and anglers, and winds through the picture-perfect meadows of Harriman State Park. The park lies within an 11,000-acre wildlife refuge in the greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, so, depending on the season, your traveling companions might be moose, elk, or graceful trumpeter swans. You can rent a yurt or a cabin here, and enjoy afternoons hiking, fly-fishing, cycling, and horseback riding. Just up the road at High Mountain Adventures, rent tubes for a relaxing float down the crystal clear Buffalo River; Mack’s Inn rents canoes and kayaks for a laid-back paddle on the Henrys Fork. While you’re in the area, be sure to drive the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway (Highway 47) for views of two of the West’s prettiest falls. Lower Mesa Falls and Upper Mesa Falls plunge 65 feet and 114 feet, respectively, into the Henrys Fork within a pristine forest setting. Take in the falling waters from various viewing platforms, and stop for a relaxing break at the picturesque visitor center by the upper falls. In winter, the byway is closed to vehicles, so snowmobilers and skiers have the road all to themselves.

to both Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Whether you head out on your own or with an outfitter, endless adventure awaits in this most majestic of landscapes. You can hike rugged trails, fly-fish along the Teton River, explore on horseback, or golf among spring-fed lakes at Teton Springs Resort. In winter, the skies drop an immense amount of snow, so bundle up for nonstop Nordic skiing and snowmobiling. Over at Grand Targhee Resort, just outside of Driggs in Alta, Wyoming, you’ll ski light powder (more than 500 inches a year!) against unmatched views of the Tetons. The valley’s many hotels, B&Bs, resorts, and guest ranches are open year-round and welcome you with open arms to relax after a full day outside. Take the kids for a huckleberry shake—a Teton Valley tradition—at the Victor Emporium. Enjoy a craft beer or a bottle of the famous Old Faithful root beer at Grand Teton Brewing, also in Victor. If you’re into history, consider visiting the Teton Valley Museum on Highway 33 in Driggs, and check out the Teton Aviation Center’s collection of restored vintage warplanes. Wrap up a perfect summer day with an evening of old-fashioned fun at the classic Spud Drive-In Theatre. You can’t miss this valley landmark, with its vintage truck out front hauling the biggest potato you’ve ever seen.

Teton Valley

Around the Fourth of July, take to the skies at the Teton Valley Balloon Rally, which offers hot-air balloon rides with Teton views, a parade, live music, pilot meet-and-greets, and kids’ activities. In August, Grand Targhee hosts its annual bluegrass festival—music and mountains don’t mix much better than this. Teton Valley Balloon Rally

TETON VALLEY While many travelers base their Teton excursions in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, those who prefer a less crowded experience find their way to the other side of the celebrated mountain range—to the Idaho communities of Driggs, Tetonia, and Victor. These small towns sit in the Teton Valley, which—at 6,200 feet—offers amazing mountain recreation all year long and easy access

EAST IDAHO Snake River

RECREATION

Biking

Fishing & Wildlife

› If you like to power your adventure yourself, you’ll find tons of biking throughout this region. The Idaho Falls Greenbelt offers a relaxing route along the Snake River downtown, or step it up a notch on Swan Valley’s mountain bike trails, where you’ll pedal next to amazing views of the South Fork of the Snake River. Harriman State Park, the Island Park area, and, really, all of the vast public lands in this region offer trails for families and experts alike.

› Here at the base of the Continental Divide, icy water feeds some of the most acclaimed fly-fishing trout streams in the West: the South Fork of the Snake, the Teton River, Henrys Fork, and the mountain creeks of Swan Valley. › If you’re drawn to wildlife, book a naturalist-guided hiking, skiing, or snowshoeing tour. Try the Outfitters by Natural Retreats, or stop in area chambers of commerce and Forest Service offices for outfitter recommendations.

Golf

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

› Teton Springs’ Headwaters Course delivers east Idaho’s best golf experience, with masterfully designed rolling fairways surrounded by gorgeous spring-fed lakes. If that’s not relaxing enough, unwind even more with a massage at the club’s Stillwaters Spa.

ATV/OHV › Rev up your adventure and take it off-road throughout east Idaho. Have a blast at the 10,000-acre St. Anthony Sand Dunes or ride the Big Bend Ridge Trail or Railroad Right-of-Way Trail within the Ashton/Island Park Ranger District of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Closer to the scenic Swan Valley, hit up the Fall Creek area along the Snake River for miles of OHV terrain.

Harriman State Park

Snow Sports › Gear up to ski and board at the massively snowy Grand Targhee Resort, which receives 500 inches of powder a year. If you’re near Rigby or Ririe, Kelly Canyon is your place for winter fun; this family-friendly mountain offers 51 runs, tubing, and a terrain park.

Hot Springs & Zips › Soak and swim near Rigby at Heise Hot Springs, home to warm and cool pools, a water slide, a golf course, and campgrounds. The resort’s seven zip lines will carry you on an impressive mile-long aerial tour above the Snake River.

FAVORITE HANGOUTS


Craters of the Moon

H

ope you don’t mind heights, because

you’re about to enter Idaho’s most mountainous region—a jaw-droppingly gorgeous landscape of peaks and passes just waiting to be explored. The jagged Sawtooth Mountains stand guard over the Stanley Basin, an area where endless hiking, biking, and snowmobile trails wind past cold, clear streams and glacier-carved lakes. Mount Borah, the state’s highest peak at 12,662 feet, looks out over the sweeping plains near Mackay, beckoning hikers and climbers to ascend its slopes. From the small western town of Stanley, travel Highway 75 over Galena Pass to the romantic Sun Valley–Ketchum resort area for world-class skiing and hiking, mountain biking, and art-gallery browsing. Ernest Hemingway settled here in his later years and was particularly fond of the Silver Creek area, now a preserve known for fantastic fly-fishing and its rich habitat for birds, elk, and even mountain lions. The Salmon River, ranked by National Geographic as one of the world’s top whitewater adventures, begins in this region. This region is not new to adventure—this was the home of Sacajawea, the brave Lemhi-Shoshone woman who served as interpreter for the Lewis and Clark expedition as they made their way west to the Pacific Ocean.

CENTRAL IDAHO ‹ DULL MOMENTS DON’T STAND A CHANCE Stanley Basin

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

STANLEY BASIN Careful now—people have been known to pick up and move to Idaho after a visit to Stanley. Its romantic, rugged Western beauty is one for the picture books—maybe because it always seems to be perfectly cast in a light that makes its meadows greener, its peaks craggier, and its crooked fences more rustic. Stanley Basin is surrounded by the Boulder–White Cloud Mountains— portions of which were designated as wilderness in 2015—and the Sawtooth Mountains, where the mighty Salmon River begins as runoff from winter snows. Backpackers, hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, and boaters will find endless adventure within the 756,000-acre Sawtooth National Recreation Area, including 700-plus miles of trails, hundreds of alpine lakes, and 40 peaks over 10,000 feet. Just east in the Jim McClure–Jerry Peak Wilderness, sagebrush gives way to alpine tundra, a landscape that’s home to some of Idaho’s best wildlife habitat. Stop by the visitor center north of Ketchum on Highway 75 or the Redfish visitor center at Redfish Lake for maps and trail

recommendations. The kids will love Redfish Lake’s sandy beach and easy trails, and you’ll love the view. The premier central Idaho adventure is a guided rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River through the Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness, the largest wilderness area in the Lower 48. This trip is five to seven wondrous days in the Idaho outdoors, with crystal-clear waters, natural hot springs, catch-and-release fishing, and Dutch-oven riverside dining. Not only is the Middle Fork a national Wild and Scenic River, National Geographic ranks it as the third-best whitewater river trip in the world because of its challenging Class III and IV rapids, unspoiled landscape, and abundance of wildlife. Stanley sits in the heart of this area, at the junction of three very picturesque routes: Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway on Highway 21, Salmon River Scenic Byway on Highways 93 and 75, and the Sawtooth Scenic Byway on Highway 75. You’ll find plentiful cabins and motels in and around Stanley for year-round excursions. Enjoy a rustic-luxe vacation at Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, where

Valley Pavilion. Take a scenic ride on the Roundhouse Express Gondola up to the top of Mount Baldy, where you can hike, bike, or enjoy a meal and an awesome view at the Roundhouse restaurant.

SUN VALLEY/ KETCHUM/HAILEY

Less than a mile away is the mountain town of Ketchum, where Ernest Hemingway spent his last years, from the late 1950s until his death in 1961. Take time to browse Ketchum’s many shops and galleries, grab a drink at the famous Whiskey Jacques’, and choose from an eclectic array of eateries for a taste of regional cuisine.

Part of the larger Wood River Valley, spend happy days discovering trails and quiet fishing spots amid quaking aspen groves, dense mountain forests, and wildflower meadows. Book a trip along the Big Wood River and Silver Creek with the top-notch fly fishermen and women at Silver Creek Outfitters; they’re passionate about teaching the sport to beginners, too. Take it all in from above and add elevation to your vacation on a paragliding adventure with Fly Sun Valley. Sun Valley is the West’s storied ski resort, with a long history of movie stars and other royalty escaping to its secluded slopes. Today, people come from all over to experience the old-world charm of this cozy alpine village on the edge of the wilderness. You’ll find deluxe accommodations throughout the resort, from condos and cottages to the historic Sun Valley Lodge. Beautifully renovated guest rooms, a full-service spa, a yoga studio, and boutique shops make the Lodge a premier luxury destination. Sun Valley is bustling year-round—so come hit the greens at its beautiful golf courses, take a guided trail ride at Sun Valley Stables, and watch world-class figure skaters practice and perform at the Lodge’s ice rink; the popular Sun Valley on Ice show runs Saturday nights all summer long. Also, almost every evening in summer, catch national headliners, local bands, or the Sun Valley Summer Symphony at the Sun

Head to Christina’s for a casual Tuscan-inspired breakfast, brunch, or lunch, complete with fresh-baked breads; enjoy distinctive Northwest cuisine in the gorgeous garden at the Grill at Knob Hill; or find a more industrial, Mediterranean vibe at Town Square Tavern. Raspberry’s is a local favorite, offering eclectic, organic eats in a cozy atmosphere. In March, independent cinema comes to screens around town during the Sun Valley Film Festival. Readers and writers gather in July for the Sun Valley Writer’s Conference and in September for the Ernest Hemingway Festival. Over Memorial Day weekend, get motivated, do some yoga, and grab a massage at the annual Sun Valley Wellness Festival. This valley gives a big nod to its Western roots with events like the Hailey Rodeo over the Fourth of July, the Wagon Days & Big Hitch Parade on Labor Day weekend, and the Trailing of the Sheep Festival each October. If you’re not staying at the Sun Valley Resort, Ketchum and the nearby town of Hailey offer an assortment of hotels

FAIRFIELD There’s more than meets the eye near the tiny rural town of Fairfield. The nearby Sawtooth and Boise National Forests deliver year-round adventure, and the surrounding prairie turns blue and purple with camas lilies during the “Big Bloom” in May. For amazing photo ops, head to the Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh Wildlife Management Area, where thousands of migrating birds take respite among the purple meadows and marshlands. Bring the kids to swim and water ski at Mormon and Magic Reservoirs, and fish for huge rainbow and brown trout. Enjoy a peaceful day of prime fly-fishing at Silver Creek or the Little Wood River. In winter, snowmobiling rules, and Soldier Mountain Ski Area promises relaxed, uncrowded days on the slopes.

CRATERS OF THE MOON & ARCO In the high desert near Arco, you’ll find one of the most unusual landscapes on earth: Craters of the Moon National Monument. The 750,000-acre monument encompasses an enormous basaltic lava field with endless volcanic features such as spatter and cinder cones, lava tubes, and caves. Indigenous people and pioneers both have fascinating histories here, which you can read about at the visitor center. Although the landscape looks barren, it’s home to hundreds of species of plants and animals. A seven-mile loop road leads you through the lava field, and you can walk short trails to caves and craters. RV and camping spots are available in the monument; there are a few motels in the nearby town of Arco.

Ridge causes many to turn back close to the top. The mountainous terrain surrounding Mackay is ideal for hiking, biking, and backcountry drives; a fun drive is the self-guided Mackay Mine Hill Tour, which gives you a glimpse into the area’s mining heritage. If you’re into off-road action, join fellow OHVers for scenic and technical riding at the popular Rally in the Pines ATV event each July. Winter snows make for amazing cross-country skiing and snowmobiling throughout the entire Lost River region.

Silver Lake

SALMON & THE LEMHI VALLEY North of Challis, Highway 93 enters the serene Lemhi Valley and the mountain town of Salmon, which confirms why Idaho is called the Whitewater Capital of the World. That’s because the Salmon River, or the “River of No Return,” flows right through town, leading to amazing adventures through some of the best rapids and most scenic landscape in the world. Experience this pristine terrain, wildlife, and fresh backcountry air by booking a trip with a licensed outfitter.

Craters of the Moon

Other epic adventures are documented at the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural, Educational & Events Center, where you can learn about the Lemhi-Shoshone woman who served as an interpreter for the Lewis and Clark expedition. A little out of town, drive the Lewis and Clark Backcountry Byway loop up to Lemhi Pass, the spot where a small group of the Corps of Discovery spied the endless mountain terrain that lay ahead of them to the west. The byway is a 36-mile single-lane gravel road with steep grades, but it’s worth the journey in a high-clearance vehicle. Rainbow Trout

MACKAY Mackay is a rugged sight, its western downtown silhouetted by the crags of the towering Lost River Range. It’s the closest town to Mount Borah—at 12,662 feet, the state’s tallest peak— earning it its “Top of Idaho” nickname. Most seasoned hikers can climb Borah in a day, but the famed Chicken-out

Salmon River


CENTRAL IDAHO Salmon River

RECREATION Water Play › The mighty Salmon River begins here as a small stream in the shadow of Galena Summit before turning into one of the world’s most revered bodies of water. Book an unforgettable whitewater adventure launching from Salmon or Stanley—outfitters offer half-day floats or five days of wilderness rafting and superb riverside dining.

| OFFICIAL IDAHO STATE TRAVEL GUIDE

› The pristine Middle Fork of the Salmon—the ultimate wilderness river—flows through the 2.37million-acre Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness near Stanley. Idaho River Journeys, Solitude River Trips, and White Otter Adventures are solid choices for whitewater or familyfriendly scenic trips on the Salmon.

104

› Just south of Stanley, be sure to visit Redfish Lake, long a summer destination for swimming, boating, canoeing, and paddleboarding. The Redfish Lake Lodge offers accommodations in its historic inn and in many cabins; camping is available, too.

Snow Sports › When winter blows in, head to Sun Valley for great downhill skiing and a stay at the beautiful old-world lodge. North of Ketchum, the road rises slowly to Galena Summit and Galena Lodge, a scenic home base for Nordic skiing.

› Families and couples love the classic sleigh rides around the snowy hills of Sun Valley—snuggle up for a crisp loop tour or make it an evening with a sleigh ride to dinner at the charming Trail Creek Cabin.

Trails › The Sawtooth National Recreation Area and Sawtooth Wilderness have tons of routes to alpine lakes, jagged spires, and lupine meadows. And just when you think you’ve found the most amazing spot, you’ll turn a bend to another. Fisher Creek is a mountain bike trail popular for its varied and picturesque terrain; ditto for the trails leading from the Galena Lodge area.

Stanley Basin

› Hikers and mountaineers eagerly climb Idaho’s highest peak, Mount Borah. At 12,666 feet, the hike to the top can be done in a day; mountaineers can choose more technical routes.

Golfing › A marker on Sun Valley’s White Clouds Golf Course reads, “This is not all about golf.” Which will make sense as you play any of the resort’s courses, which roll magnificently through the Wood River Valley, offering mountain views inspiring the name “American Alps.”

HISTORY Lewis and Clark › The Lewis and Clark expedition crossed the Continental Divide near Lemhi Pass on August 12, 1805, accompanied by their interpreter, Sacajawea, a young Lemhi-Shoshone woman who was born near present-day Salmon, Idaho. It was in central Idaho that the expedition, peering across the endless mountain ranges ahead, realized

they wouldn’t be finding a river passage to the Pacific. Begin your own “Voyage of Discovery” in this region by visiting the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural, Educational & Events Center; rafting the Salmon River; and driving to Lemhi Pass on the Lewis and Clark Backcountry Byway.
