Introduction to the Report

Rails to Trails - Weiser to Tamarack, Idaho

This is a trail ride that can be tailor-made for a perfect fit.  Short or long, desert or evergreen forests.  You're sure to find something for everyone!

We rode the Weiser River’s abandoned railroad bed trail a few times last fall and this spring.  The Friends of the Weiser River Trail (FWRT) have a website www.weiserrivertrail.org with some basic maps and information – but here is some more specific information for planning your trip.  ....

Horse Camping Near Stanley, Idaho

Trail riding in the Sawtooth National Forest in central Idaho has a great deal to offer. 

A Sawtooth National Forest map ($7 at ranger stations) covers most of the area but the adjoining Boise and Challis National Forest maps would be helpful as well. Most trails are marked on these maps – but some are not, some are inaccurate and some portions don’t exist anymore. A call to the Stanley Ranger station (208)774-3000 would help with any trails you’re not sure about.

The easiest thing to do is decide which trail you want to ride and while driving out the access road to the trailhead, pick one of the many campsites you'll see along the way. Your decision is limited by what you want to drive your vehicle on and how far off the access road you want to be. ....

Wilson Creek in the Owyhees - Near Boise, Idaho The Owyhee Mountains in southwestern Idaho have beautiful high desert vistas and rugged river canyons.  If you are in the right places there is a chance to see herds of wild horses on the Bureau of Land Management range.

Wilson Creek in the Owyhee Foothills is reached by the Owyhee Uplands National Back Country Scenic Byway (State Highway 78).  It is also close to the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge and the nationally-renowned Snake River Birds of Prey Area.  A great place for a 1-day ride! ....
