Highlight: Corral Creek
Corral Creek Trail is on BLM property in southwest Idaho, about 30 miles east of Oregon. It is a ranchers trail to maintain the pond at the end for his cattle. The scenery is fantastic in all directions with the Oregon mountains to the west, Squaw Butte to the east, and the beautiful Emmett Valley to the south. This trail will give you a feel for how cattle are raised in this part of Idaho, and elsewhere, dating back to the 1800s. Many of the cattle ranches here are 3rd and 4th generation. The typical charge to run cattle on BLM property is $1.50 per head, per month. Please respect that the rancher uses this property for his living and always STAY THE TRAIL.

Dennis Clark

Mapping Crew - California and Idaho

Dennis Clark was born in Los Angeles in 1942 and after 76 years of living in So Cal he moved to Emmett, Idaho with his wife Patricia, has four adult children with many grand and great grandchildren. He has loved the outdoors since his Cub Scout and Boy Scout days while camping with the family. He's an archer, hunter and fisherman but no longer wishes to harm animals. He has been involved with photography since the 1960's. He became more of a serious hiker in 2010 when he started Geocaching and has hiked the three tallest peaks in So Cal, Mt San Jacinto, Mt San Gorgonio and Mt Baldy, along with most of the lesser peaks in search of caches. Geocaching started his love for the USFS Trail system as he used the trails frequently to get to certain trailheads. He had a 2002 Ford Ranger 2wd and its amazing where that little pickup took him. In 5 years of weekly geocaching he was only stuck once in some Palm Springs sand. His 2016 Wrangler Sport Unlimited was purchased in 2015. He has become quite lazy in the hiking department as he can now drive to most locations. He's looking forward to posting some trails and don't hesitate to ask him for any help you might need.
