South Fork of the Boise River

Hiking & Backpacking icon.

This Idaho gem offers excellent camping, wildlife viewing, and outdoor recreation. Hike through lush forests where you’ll have a good chance of seeing eagles in their natural habitat. No matter which area of the canyon you choose to trek through, you’ll find ample amounts of fire rings for campers and trails wide enough for ATV’s and vehicles with 4WD. If you want to take a two-day hike into the canyon, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of large waterfalls farther upstream. These massive waterfalls coupled with sweeping green meadows make for a beautiful backdrop as you enjoy your morning coffee.
