The trail leads from the sagebrush prairie up into mountainous Rocky Canyon and the scenery just keeps getting better the farther you ascend. This is a non-motorized trail. This is wide open, remote Idaho, leading into a highly scenic canyon. The trail ends at the 8,750 foot level at the base of The Brow Peak. Early in the summer there may be leftover snow slides across the upper trail. This ride is highly recommended but the trail recieves little use so is faint in areas. The downhill coming out is a blast.

Disclaimer

This trail is Non-Motorized.
