Overview

Bogus Basin Road ends a short way past the Boise Ridge Trailhead at the Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area, noted as a popular, local ski area. The trail itself is in the beautiful Boise National Forest just 30 minutes from Boise. The forest is over 2 million acres of spectacular beauty that you have to experience for yourself. The trail meanders southward along the main ridge east of Boise, providing panoramic 360-degree views. With the many spurs off of this trail, you can make your dispersed camping experience as remote as you like. The trail is open year-round, the only limitations would be you and your rigs ability in snow.
