Hero: Wildcat  Gulch
small-sr Icon
Turning on Grimes Creek Road from Highway 21, also called the Ponderosa Pines Scenic Route, to the right is a sign for Wildcat Gulch. Wildcat Gulch will also take you to Centerville Road and then onto Idaho City, like Grimes Creek. But instead of taking through the valley on a wide easy road, Wildcat Gulch goes up the mountain and across the ridgelines, giving you a completely different experience and several panoramic views of the foothills. Wildcat Gulch is a one-lane 4x4 road with medium to deep tire ruts and potholes. There are many nice campsites with great views, but most are on spur roads with little to no maintenance. It is also used for hunting access, and firewood collection, so you will run into more people in the Fall than in other parts of the year.
