Overview

This trail is in the Boise National Forest, two hours north of Boise, Idaho. Sagehen Dam and Reservoir is just 1.3 miles to the east. The reservoir has four improved campgrounds, some are first come first served, others require a reservation. The lake is well known for its rainbow trout, so bring a fishing pole. The trail and entire area are in Idaho's hunting unit 32A where you will be sharing your space with deer, elk, black bear, mountain lions, and wolves, to name a few. This trail is one of many spurs along the main Sagehen Road and is best described as a dispersed camping paradise nestled among the pines, fir, and spruce. Shrubs and grasses dotted with wildflowers fill in the non-forested areas.
