West Mountain Trail is in the beautiful and diverse Boise National Forest. It is just a few miles south and east of Sagehen Reservoir. This trail climbs to over 6,000-feet with the reservoir at 4,800-feet. The rainbow trout fishing is fantastic due to the campgrounds closing occasionally for logging activities for fire management. This area has something for everyone! Boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, hunting, camping, snowmobiling, or 4-wheeling! All of that and less than 2 hours north of Boise, Idaho. If you're new to the area, the drive north from Horseshoe Bend is an experience in itself, along the beautiful and internationally known Payette River for its rafting and Kayak competitions. When you leave the river to head inland you'll have 5 miles of beautiful dirt roads just to get to this trailhead!
