Centerville Road connects the historic mining community of Centerville and Horseshoe Bend to the west and Idaho City to the southeast. Centerville was one of the four prominent mining camps that emerged during the Boise Basin gold rush of 1862. By September of 1863, Centerville had a population of almost 3,000 people, making it the fourth-largest camp in the Boise Basin behind Idaho City, Placerville, and Pioneerville, and the fourth largest city in the area that is now Idaho. Unlike Placerville and Idaho City, which have survived and are active towns today, nothing remains of Centerville except a few homes. This trail is mainly a graded dirt road that is only paved near Centerville and Idaho City and offers scenic views of the Boise and West Mountains.
