Archie Creek Road, FR-542, is a mountain ridge road located in the central part of the Boise National Forest. The Boise National Forest covers a vast 2.5 million acres ranging from forest and grassland. This trail is approximately 2 hours from Boise and an hour from the historic mining town of Idaho City. This is a great option if you want to avoid the crowds on Idaho-21 or just want to look at mountains and feel like you are on top of the world as this road winds down off of the Banner Ridge offering impressive views of the surrounding mountains and ridges within the Boise National Forest. There is a great overlook that offers an amazing view of the Idaho -21/Ponderosa Pine Scenic Route and the Payette River. The trail then descends down, crosses the Payette River, and passes through the small community of Kirkham. There is one dispersed campsite on this trail in a great open area with 360 panoramic views of the nearby mountain peaks and ridges.
