Rocky Canyon Road, also known as Shaw Mountain Road on the eastern side, is one of the access roads to the famous scenic Boise Ridge Road. Rocky Canyon can also be used to access trails in the Idaho City area and near Lucky Peak Reservoir. It is narrow and is widely used by bikers, hikers, and runners. On the Boise side of the summit, the road is graded dirt, but once you start to descend, the trail is not well maintained, and there can be washouts in some areas. There are no camping areas along this trail.
