Overview

Little Anderson Creek is in the beautiful Boise National Forest. The trail starts just north of Garden Valley which is noted for its large Elk population. This trail was originally used to drive cattle from Scott Mountain to market, and the logging industry brought their timber down to Horseshoe Bend until Boise-Cascade shut down the mill in 1998. Today, it's all about recreation and it's in a popular hunting area as well. During this trail write-up, elk, deer, and turkeys were spotted as well as a hunter looking for a bear. After every storm, you will encounter downed trees so be prepared to remove them or limit your time on the trail. Remember to "Stay The Trail". In most instances, you couldn't go around them even if you wanted due to the shelf nature of most of the trail. There are several no-name spurs off this trail for dispersed camping away from the main trail.
