Driving north from Boise on Highway 55, the road makes sweeping curves through river canyons and wide meadows before entering the small town of Donnelly.  Home to Tamarack Ski Resort, Lake Cascade, Gold Fork Hot Springs and nearby Historic Roseberry, Donnelly is a wonderful starting point for all types of outdoor recreation.  Ride the lifts at Tamarack Resort for summer mountain biking and winter skiing, or rent kayaks or paddleboards and explore the lake.  Campgrounds are plentiful and hiking trails lead to expansive mountain views.
