Highlight: Sagehen Spur 626AA
Sagehen Spur 626AA is in the Boise National Forest, less than 2 hours north of Boise. The main road, Sagehen Reservoir Road, has lots of spur trails like this one where you will find dozens of dispersed camping sites. This trail has Tripod Meadow opposite the trailhead which has the Tripod Creek running through it. The meadow is a beautiful location to watch for the wildlife that calls this area home. Besides deer and elk, be aware of bear and mountain lion as well. Watch yourself, your children, and your pets accordingly.

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.
