<strong>Idaho</strong> Recreation<br />

Go out on a limb or<br />

out on the town


Dear Visitor,<br />

Welcome to our beautiful state.<br />

Make yourself at home!<br />

You’ll learn all about <strong>Idaho</strong>’s remarkable<br />

geographic diversity and the endless<br />

recreational opportunities that attract<br />

more than 30 million people from all over<br />

the world each year.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> is home to hundreds of miles of<br />

mountain biking trails and more whitewater<br />

than any other state in the Lower<br />

48. There are mountains and sand dunes<br />

to climb, lakes to fish, 18 ski resorts for<br />

winter and summer fun, and both indoor<br />

and outdoor water parks that are among<br />

the finest in the nation.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> also is one of the best and most<br />

cost-effective places in the country to<br />

locate a business. You’ll find the quality<br />

of our workforce and the hospitality of<br />

our people to be second to none.<br />

Come and explore our wonders. I think<br />

you’ll agree that <strong>Idaho</strong> is a great place to<br />

visit—and an even better place to live,<br />

work, and raise a family.<br />

As always—<strong>Idaho</strong>, “Esto Perpetua.”<br />

Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter<br />

and First Lady Lori Otter<br />

BLISS.<br />

JUST A STONE’S<br />

THROW AWAY.<br />

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

Territory Act, which made <strong>Idaho</strong> part of the United States.<br />

Nestled against the western side of the continental<br />

divide of the Rocky Mountains, <strong>Idaho</strong> remains a vast and<br />

diverse state 150 years later. Ernest Hemingway once<br />

quipped, “A lot of state, this <strong>Idaho</strong>, that I didn’t know<br />

about.” Since you’ve picked up our Official Travel Guide,<br />

you must want to learn more. Northern <strong>Idaho</strong> gleams<br />

with emerald green hillsides and sparkling lakes of all<br />

sizes. Rugged mountains, wilderness areas, and rolling<br />

farmland make up central <strong>Idaho</strong>. The Snake River Plain,<br />

with its wide-open vistas, lush farmland, and vibrant<br />

cities, forms the character of southern <strong>Idaho</strong>. Around<br />

every bend you’ll find spectacular scenery and abundant<br />

recreational opportunities. You’ll also find a place that’s<br />

unhurried, unspoiled, and unassuming—perfect for your<br />

own “Adventure in Living.”<br />

You may visit <strong>Idaho</strong> for its natural beauty and outdoor<br />

recreation, but you’ll find a great business climate here<br />

as well. In 2012, <strong>Idaho</strong> was ranked #1 Most Friendly State<br />

for Small Business by the Kauffman Foundation. The<br />

Bureau of Labor Statistics scored <strong>Idaho</strong> # 3 for Highest<br />

Projected Percentage Job Growth for 2008-2018. Add in<br />

the state’s affordable cost of living, low power rates, and<br />

enthusiastic workforce, and you have an equation for<br />

success. Take a closer look at www.commerce.idaho.gov.


We can’t compete with the beauty of <strong>Idaho</strong>.<br />

But that doesn’t stop us from trying.<br />

Whether you’re visiting Silverwood<br />

Theme Park, taking in the breathtaking<br />

waterfalls, shopping in Boise or enjoying<br />

a cruise on board the Red Lion River<br />

Queen, something tells us you’re going<br />

to need a good night’s sleep.<br />

Bonners Ferry<br />

You know those people who tell<br />

You<br />

This charming town, considered one of<br />

the state’s friendliest, offers an assortment<br />

of attractions to visitors. Stroll<br />

through the quaint downtown area or<br />

cross the highway to try your luck at<br />

the Kootenai River Inn Casino. This lush<br />

valley, only 1,800 feet in elevation, is<br />

brimming with fields of wheat, oats,<br />

barley, and hops for brewing beer.<br />

Those looking for an amazing mountain<br />

biking or hiking experience will be<br />

thrilled to find more than 300 miles of<br />

trails crisscrossing the three mountain<br />

ranges that encircle the valley. Be<br />

sure to take a side trip on Highway 2<br />

over the Moyie River Bridge to see the<br />

misty, 60-foot-high Moyie Falls. Wildlife<br />

watchers and photographers can<br />

enjoy the renowned Kootenai National<br />

Wildlife Refuge. Watch for elk, moose,<br />

deer, eagles, and numerous species of<br />

small mammals and birds.<br />

to get out more<br />

Sandpoint<br />

Set on the northwestern shore of Lake<br />

Pend Oreille, Sandpoint is an artsy<br />

resort town with galleries, shops,<br />

charming restaurants, and Pend Oreille<br />

Winery, offering a bistro, gift shop,<br />

and wine tasting. It is also home to<br />

Coldwater Creek, the upscale northcountry<br />

clothing catalog. Lake Pend<br />

Oreille—so deep it has a naval base<br />

for submarine training—offers ideal<br />

fishing, boat cruises, and camping<br />

along its forested shores. The lake is<br />

popular with anglers searching for giant<br />

Kamloops, a freshwater species of lake<br />

Summer is the perfect time to lounge<br />

beside the water with a cool drink or<br />

take in performances at the Festival at<br />

Sandpoint, which gathers an eclectic<br />

mix of established and up-and-coming<br />

musicians. Be sure to try <strong>Idaho</strong>’s<br />

Silver Valley<br />

Gold and silver were discovered in Wallace<br />

in 1882, and the Silver Valley grew<br />

into the largest silver mining region in<br />

the world. Experience first-hand the<br />

challenges of yesteryear—railroad<br />

history at the Northern Pacific Depot<br />

Railroad Museum and mining history<br />

at the Sierra Silver Mine or the Wallace<br />

District Mining Museum. Adults can<br />

take a walk on the wild side to view the<br />

unique exhibits at the Oasis Bordello<br />

Museum. See the imaginative public<br />

art throughout downtown Kellogg, then<br />

descend deep underground into the<br />

Crystal Gold Mine. During the summer,<br />

cool down at Silver Rapids Water Park.<br />

Ride on the Route of the Hiawatha<br />

rail trail, an outstanding bike path that<br />

follows a former railroad-bed trail<br />

15 miles through 10 tunnels and<br />

over seven trestle bridges. When the<br />

snow flies, ride up Silver Mountain in<br />

comfort in the single-stage gondola or<br />

head east to Lookout Pass for skiing,<br />

snowboarding, or snowmobiling.<br />

Worley/Plummer<br />

Just south of Coeur d’Alene, the land<br />

rises above the lake to the rolling<br />

wheat fields and green forests of<br />

Worley and Plummer. In this pastoral<br />

landscape is Circling Raven Golf Course<br />

and the Coeur d’Alene Casino. Continuing<br />

south on Highway 95 and then<br />

east on Highway 5, you will discover<br />

Heyburn State Park, one of the oldest<br />

state parks in the country. Stand in awe<br />

beneath the cool shade of 400-year-old<br />

ponderosa pines. This 5,500-acre state<br />

park is set on Chatcolet Lake, making it<br />

the ideal location for wildlife watching.<br />

At the sleepier, southern end of Lake<br />

Coeur d’Alene sits Harrison, perfect for<br />

those enjoying the western end of the<br />

Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes.<br />

» If “Land of A Thousand Lakes” wasn’t<br />

already taken, then northern <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

would definitely qualify for the nickname.<br />

The three largest lakes—Priest,<br />

Pend Oreille and Coeur d’Alene—all offer<br />

a variety of watery fun. Skim across<br />

the surface of a clear blue lake on a jet<br />

ski. Cast a line for trout or salmon. Take<br />

in a cruise or parasail high above Lake<br />

Coeur d’Alene. Local outfitters, such as<br />

River Odysseys West—named 2012’s<br />

Top Tour Operator by Travel & Leisure<br />

magazine—are ready to take you on a<br />

rafting or kayaking adventure.<br />

» When you step off the dock, you’ll<br />

find northern <strong>Idaho</strong> is an adventurist’s<br />

dream. Soar like a bird over the<br />

mountains above Wallace tethered<br />

to a zip line. Nearby, the Route of the<br />

Hiawatha beckons cyclists with tunnels<br />

and high trestle bridges to cross. Tracks<br />

that once served the mines left routes<br />

just crying out to become bike paths.<br />

Miles and miles of trails—paved, dirt,<br />

or gravel—cross the <strong>Idaho</strong> panhandle,<br />

« When it comes to adventure, we’re next to none »<br />

waiting for you to put pedal to the<br />

metal. If the 72-mile Trail of the Coeur<br />

d’Alenes is too tame, head up to<br />

either Silver Mountain in Kellogg or<br />

Schweitzer Mountain in Sandpoint for<br />

rugged, lift-served mountain biking.<br />

Serious cyclists may want to consider<br />

joining Ride <strong>Idaho</strong>, a seven day,<br />

premier bicycle tour to be held August<br />

4-10, 2013. rideidaho.org<br />

» Outstanding golf courses are in northern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, such as the Coeur d’Alene<br />

Resort Golf Course with its famous<br />

floating green or Circling Raven, a<br />

sumptuous course near Worley.<br />

» If your idea of recreation is lifting a<br />

pair of binoculars, drive to Wolf Lodge<br />

Bay—a bald eagle wintering ground<br />

just seven miles from Coeur d’Alene—<br />

to view the magnificent, noble bird.<br />

Eagle Watch Week, between Christmas<br />

and New Year, has educational displays<br />

and telescopes so visitors can see<br />

some of the 300 bald eagles that nest<br />

here. Or head north to the 2,774-acre<br />

Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge<br />

near Bonners Ferry to view moose,<br />

songbirds, and water fowl.<br />

» When the cold winds come <strong>Idaho</strong>’s<br />

way, it’s time to head to the hills for<br />

skiing, Nordic skiing and snowmobiling<br />

at or near Schweitzer Mountain, Silver<br />

Mountain, or Lookout Pass. Lookout<br />

Pass even offers a free ski school will<br />

get you up and soaring over the snow.<br />

« High culture, not-so-high prices »<br />

» With so many lakes and rivers, it<br />

shouldn’t come as a surprise that so<br />

many events in this region feature<br />

water activities. The Pend Oreille<br />

Regatta, the Wooden Boat Festival<br />

in Sandpoint, and the Ironman and<br />

Leadman Triathlons are just a few<br />

events with shimmering water and<br />

blue skies as a backdrop.<br />

» There are 16 museums in northern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> and the entire town of Wallace<br />

is on the National Register of Historic<br />

Places. The Museum of North <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

near the beach in Coeur d’Alene is a<br />

good place to visit. You can explore the<br />

rich mining history of the Silver Valley<br />

at the Wallace District Mining Museum<br />

and the Shoshone County Mining &<br />

Smelting Museum in Kellogg. Take a<br />

tour of one of two actual mines in the<br />

area. Learn about the human cost of<br />

extracting the earth’s riches with a<br />

visit to the Sunshine Mine Disaster<br />

Memorial. The Northern Pacific Depot<br />

Railroad Museum in Wallace transports<br />

you back in time to when railroads were<br />

the king of transportation.<br />

» No matter if your musical tastes run<br />

to the refined sounds of the Coeur<br />

d’Alene Symphony or the more eclectic<br />

strains of a lively polka at the Accordion<br />

Festival, or somewhere in between,<br />

northern <strong>Idaho</strong> mountains are alive<br />

with the sounds of music. Every fourth<br />

Friday from January to April, you can<br />

stroll through beautiful downtown<br />

Coeur d’Alene and enjoy live music<br />

performances. The Mountain Music<br />

Festival held in August at Schweitzer<br />

Mountain Resort is both lively and<br />

entertaining.<br />

» For fine dining in northern <strong>Idaho</strong>,<br />

make a reservation at Beverly’s in the<br />

with delightful seasonal cuisine for<br />

an elegant lunch or romantic dinner.<br />

For a little local flavor, try Hudson’s<br />

Hamburgers in Coeur d’Alene, a<br />

downtown institution for 100 years.<br />

» Don’t think the ski resorts close up for<br />

the summer—you can find incredible<br />

festivals and events on the mountains:<br />

Brewfest, Huckleberry Festival, musical<br />

festivals, wine-tasting events, chairlift<br />

rides, and more.<br />

» Things don’t close down in the winter<br />

months, either. The sparkle of stars<br />

on the surface of Lake Coeur d’Alene<br />

is augmented by more than 1.5 million<br />

man-made lights along the shoreline<br />

as the Coeur d’Alene Resort hosts a<br />

magical cruise to Santa’s village.<br />

Silver Mountain<br />

» If you like the service and amenities<br />

to relax after exploring the region, visiting<br />

palate desires. If you’re more into meeting<br />

the local citizenry, you can stay at<br />

one of more than 30 bed-and-breakfast<br />

inns in the region. Get the inside scoop<br />

on the “must-see” and “must-do”<br />

activities from your hosts. For those<br />

you get your cowboy on.<br />

If you are a history buff, there is a lot to<br />

see in north central <strong>Idaho</strong>. More than 200<br />

years ago, President Jefferson’s Corps of<br />

Discovery first set foot on what was to<br />

become <strong>Idaho</strong>. Lewis and Clark were awed<br />

by the seemingly endless mountains, the<br />

deep canyons, and the rushing rivers that<br />

they found here on their epic journey west.<br />

Today, you can write your own history by<br />

visiting this most pristine and unspoiled<br />

portion of Lewis and Clark’s trail and learn<br />

about their journey. You can walk in their<br />

footsteps, experience the culture and history<br />

of the Nez Perce Tribe, and gaze upon<br />

the largest wilderness area in the Lower<br />

48 states. Meander along Highway 12,<br />

the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway that<br />

parallels the wild and scenic Clearwater<br />

and Lochsa rivers from Lewiston all the<br />

way to the Montana border. Book a raft trip<br />

on any of the region’s six rivers, including<br />

the Main Salmon—<strong>Idaho</strong>’s famous “River<br />

of No Return.” Roar over forbidding rapids<br />

in the deepest canyon in North America,<br />

Hells Canyon, on a jet boat. Or simply cruise<br />

through the photogenic countryside of the<br />

Palouse, with its colorful fields and amber<br />

waves of grain. Near Cottonwood, watch<br />

for the giant beagle, which is <strong>Idaho</strong>’s most<br />

unique bed and breakfast inn, Dog Bark<br />

Park. In the winter, check out the surrounding<br />

ski areas for scenic winter fun and<br />

friendly hospitality. In north central <strong>Idaho</strong>,<br />

it’s easy to travel at a relaxed, comfortable<br />

pace and absorb the natural beauty, while<br />

learning about a rich, diverse history.<br />

It’s oKay,<br />

your day planner will be fine<br />

Golden wheat fields, bright yellow<br />

canola flower fields, and emerald<br />

green pea fields are all set against a<br />

vivid blue sky in the rolling landscape<br />

surrounding Moscow, home to the<br />

University of <strong>Idaho</strong>. The original layout<br />

of the University’s campus was designed<br />

by the Olmsted brothers, who also<br />

designed New York’s Central Park, and<br />

made it one of the west’s more picturesque<br />

campuses with its Gothic-style<br />

administration building as the centerpiece.<br />

Music lovers, take note of the<br />

Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival on campus<br />

each February.<br />

The charming city of Moscow is an<br />

eclectic mix of small-town friendliness<br />

and college-town energy. The downtown<br />

area, full of shops and restaurants, is<br />

adjacent to tree-lined neighborhoods<br />

where children play and families gather.<br />

Enjoy a trip to the Camas Prairie Winery<br />

tasting room or the local farmers<br />

market. Plan a visit to the Appaloosa<br />

Museum, which celebrates the breed’s<br />

noble history with the Nez Perce Tribe.<br />

When snow blankets the area, there are<br />

several good local areas for skiing and<br />

snowboarding. But, if snowmobiling<br />

is more your style, there are miles and<br />

miles of trails to scratch that itch for<br />

wintertime fun.<br />

Timber Country<br />

From Moscow, meander through rolling<br />

fields and past beautiful mountain<br />

meadows up to timber country to see<br />

magnificent standing giants of cedar,<br />

tamarack, and fir trees. Take Highways<br />

3, 6, and 8 through the small towns of<br />

Princeton, Harvard, Santa, and Troy.<br />

Take a short hike to Elk Creek Falls near<br />

Elk River, classic tributary falls set in a<br />

peaceful, shaded gorge. The mountains<br />

offer great camping in the summer,<br />

hunting in the fall, and perfect terrain<br />

for winter snowmobiling.<br />

Lewiston<br />

At the confluence of the Clearwater and<br />

Snake rivers, Lewiston is the city at the<br />

lowest elevation in <strong>Idaho</strong> at only 738<br />

feet about sea level. Lewiston’s location<br />

is an ideal base to use when exploring<br />

north central <strong>Idaho</strong>, with many lodging<br />

and dining options. Walk or bike the<br />

riverside trail in Hells Gate State Park,<br />

then visit the Lewis and Clark Discovery<br />

Center to learn more about the explorers’<br />

travails in the region. Lewiston has<br />

a quaint downtown area with shaded<br />

streets, historic buildings, and the campus<br />

of Lewis-Clark State College, home<br />

to numerous regional events.<br />

« Lewis and Clark<br />

No visit to north central <strong>Idaho</strong> is<br />

complete without exploring Highway<br />

12, the Northwest Passage Scenic<br />

Byway, which meanders along the<br />

Lochsa and Clearwater rivers. High<br />

above the rivers on mountain ridges is<br />

the most pristine section of the Lewis<br />

and Clark Trail. According to Stephen<br />

Ambrose, author of “Undaunted<br />

Courage,” it is much the same as<br />

when the expedition passed through<br />

this area more than two hundred<br />

years ago. After an exhausting<br />

monthlong trek across the Bitterroot<br />

Mountains in Montana and <strong>Idaho</strong>,<br />

the expedition arrived at Weippe<br />

Prairie in September of 1805, weary<br />

and starving. The Nez Perce Tribe<br />

welcomed the strangers and ensured<br />

their survival. They were considered<br />

the most hospitable tribe the party<br />

encountered. To learn more about the<br />

Nez Perce history and culture, stop<br />

at any one of the 38 sites in the Nez<br />

Perce National Historical Park, the<br />

only national park that celebrates a<br />

people instead of a place. The Park<br />

headquarters at Spalding has an impressive<br />

museum and visual presentation,<br />

and is a good place to get an<br />

overview of sites that you may want<br />

to visit. Learn even more about this<br />

historic exploration of the mountainous<br />

American West at the Lewis and<br />

Clark Discovery Center at Hells Gate<br />

State Park in Lewiston.<br />

Lower Salmon River<br />

White bird and Riggins<br />

Between White Bird and Riggins, you’ll<br />

follow the mighty Salmon River flowing<br />

through the valleys and canyons<br />

it carved through the mountains. This<br />

area is <strong>Idaho</strong>’s whitewater capital,<br />

prime for rafting, kayaking, and jet<br />

boating.<br />

From White Bird, you can drive into<br />

Hells Canyon at Pittsburg Landing,<br />

a picnic area and boat launch on the<br />

Snake River. Riggins has numerous<br />

river outfitters and is an adventurous<br />

place to stay, providing a casual smalltown<br />

atmosphere. It is the closest town<br />

to Heaven’s Gate, a viewing point into<br />

Hells Canyon—North America’s deepest<br />

river gorge—in the Seven Devils<br />

Mountains. Inquire locally before<br />

driving up since the elevation is more<br />

than 8,407 feet, and the road can be<br />

challenging.<br />

If you’re in Riggins in early June,<br />

plan on the Big Water Blow Out River<br />

Festival, as this whitewater capital<br />

celebrates the beginning of the season<br />

with discounted outfitter trips on the<br />

Salmon River.<br />

Fishing enthusiasts will love the area’s<br />

steelhead runs in both spring and fall.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> is the only inland western state<br />

with ocean-run salmon and steelhead.<br />

Salmon River<br />

North central <strong>Idaho</strong> is an outdoor lover’s paradise, with the largest wilderness areas in the Lower<br />

48 states. Whether you are into watching or photographing wildlife, listening for the gentle sounds<br />

of nature, or the thrills of whitewater, this is the region for you.<br />

» While northern <strong>Idaho</strong> is known for<br />

its lakes, rivers rule this region. The<br />

Lochsa, Selway, Clearwater, and<br />

Salmon rivers—seriously big rivers—all<br />

rush down from the continental<br />

divide to join the Snake River at<br />

Lewiston. It takes big fish to live here.<br />

Not just any fish but steelhead—the<br />

enormous first cousin of the rainbow<br />

trout—populate the rivers, along with<br />

salmon, bass, and kokanee. If you’re<br />

ready to take on something “out of this<br />

world,” giant sturgeon are waiting for<br />

you; 10-plus feet of finned, fighting fish.<br />

Ladies, watch for the Women with Bait<br />

tournament in Riggins in February. Let<br />

the boys handle the bait, while you get<br />

to focus on reeling in the winning catch.<br />

» But you don’t have to fish to enjoy the<br />

rivers. Just sit back and relax—or not.<br />

Grab the side of your jet boat or raft<br />

and get ready for some serious adven-<br />

« Take one of our full-immersion courses »<br />

ture. Expect action with places named<br />

Hell’s Canyon, the Seven Devils, and<br />

the “River of No Return.” Outfitters will<br />

do the planning, cooking, and guiding<br />

so you can thrill to Class IV-VI rapids.<br />

» When snow falls, the expansive plains<br />

of the Palouse just cry out for the whir<br />

of snow machines. There are more<br />

than 1,200 miles of groomed trails and<br />

thousands of off-trail powdery acres to<br />

roam. A great snow season means good<br />

riding until late April and even into May<br />

in Clearwater County. Interpretative<br />

signs along the Lewis and Clark Trail<br />

explain rugged conditions the explorers<br />

experienced long ago.<br />

» Without a doubt, an area with thousands<br />

of acres of pristine wilderness<br />

would have incredible wildlife viewing<br />

opportunities. Any of the national recreation<br />

areas, wildlife management areas,<br />

or state parks will give you a window on<br />

the wild side. During the summer, stop<br />

in at the Wolf Education and Research<br />

Center near Winchester to learn more<br />

about these magnificent animals and<br />

their interactions with humans.<br />

Nez Perce Visitor Center and Museum.<br />

Riggins Rodeo<br />

Salmon River<br />

« An appreciation for beauty has become an obsession »<br />

» The Nez Perce Tribe’s history, culture,<br />

and language are woven tightly into the<br />

fabric of this area, and Lewis and Clark<br />

owe their survival to the Nez Perce<br />

during an early <strong>Idaho</strong> winter.<br />

» Missionaries followed Lewis & Clark,<br />

and the region is steeped in their<br />

contributions as well. The First Indian<br />

Presbyterian Church in Kamiah and<br />

St. Joseph’s Mission in Lewiston are<br />

open to visitors. The museum at the<br />

Monastery of St. Gertrude’s in Cottonwood<br />

houses a rich collection of the<br />

history, artifacts, and memories of the<br />

entire region, plus it hosts a Raspberry<br />

Festival each August.<br />

» You can find botanical festivals<br />

celebrating Hempfest (Moscow),<br />

the Locust Blossom (Kendrick), the<br />

Dogwood Festival (Lewiston), and the<br />

Blackberry Festival (Juliaetta). You’ll<br />

see the pastoral nature of this region in<br />

its many farmers’ markets and harvest<br />

festivals.<br />

» Lewiston is tucked in a valley that<br />

shelters it from temperatures its more<br />

mountainous neighbors experience. As<br />

a result, Dogwood trees grace the town,<br />

Looking for a great place for outdoor recreation, unique festivals,<br />

and a superb quality of life? North central <strong>Idaho</strong> offers a variety of<br />

activities, events, and diverse cultural opportunities.<br />

and are celebrated the entire month of<br />

April with music, arts, crafts, sports,<br />

and spectator events.<br />

» The wealth of museums in this region<br />

includes the J. Howard Bradbury<br />

Memorial Logging Museum in Pierce<br />

and the Lochsa Historical Ranger<br />

Station Museum near Powell. Horse<br />

lovers can’t miss the Appaloosa<br />

Museum & Heritage Center in Moscow.<br />

The history of this uniquely <strong>Idaho</strong> breed<br />

is inseparable from the Nez Perce Tribe.<br />

Another treasure is the <strong>Idaho</strong> Forest<br />

Fire Museum, which includes displays<br />

about the great fires of 1910.<br />

» A special gem is the Jack O’Connor<br />

Hunting Heritage & Educational Center<br />

tucked in the beautiful Hells Gate State<br />

Park outside of Lewiston. Longtime<br />

readers of Outdoor Life will remember<br />

the sense of adventure that came alive<br />

in his many writings that inspired,<br />

informed, and educated outdoorsmen<br />

and hunters about wildlife conservation<br />

and modern wildlife management.<br />

» Moscow is imbued with all of the<br />

energy, excitement, and culture a<br />

large university can bring when the<br />

River Dance Lodge<br />

University of <strong>Idaho</strong> is in session.<br />

Vandal athletics and the Lionel<br />

Hampton Jazz Festival fill the nearby<br />

hotels. On campus, you’ll experience a<br />

banquet for the senses at the spectacular<br />

63-acre Arboretum & Botanical<br />

Garden. Take in the Great Performance<br />

Within a few hours’ drive, you can roam<br />

through a variety of diverse climates and<br />

dramatically different landscapes in southwestern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, from rural farmland to a<br />

bustling city, from vast expanses of forestlands<br />

to big-sky vistas of high-country<br />

desert. In a single day, you can hike to an<br />

alpine lake and observe incredible wildlife,<br />

dine at a local downtown hot spot, then<br />

head to a sporting or cultural event; you<br />

can hit the slopes at one of the surrounding<br />

ski areas, ending the day at a local theater<br />

or eatery. You can watch eagles take<br />

flight, and then listen to smooth jazz, or<br />

local rock ‘n’ roll talent. You can be in the<br />

middle of it all one minute and get away<br />

from it the next. You’ll be impressed with<br />

the lush, green mountain valley rimmed by<br />

snow-capped peaks, and the region’s lively<br />

towns and urban centers. Make sure your<br />

itinerary includes some extra time for tasting<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s bounty. Local foods and <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

wines are quickly gaining the acclaim that<br />

southwest <strong>Idaho</strong>’s mountains, rivers, and<br />

outdoor recreation opportunities have long<br />

enjoyed. Pick up fresh produce at one of<br />

the many farmers’ markets in towns large<br />

and small. The designation of the Snake<br />

River Valley American Viticulture Area<br />

is bringing more attention to the wines<br />

produced in the region, and restaurants<br />

continue to create delectable menus using<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>-grown and locally sourced products.<br />

THe official destination<br />

Valley/Adams Counties<br />

Where the high mountain valleys<br />

emerge at the source of the Little<br />

Salmon River, you’ll find yourself at<br />

the 45th parallel—halfway between<br />

the North Pole and the Equator. A<br />

sign on Highway 95 just north of New<br />

Meadows marks the exact spot. Tee<br />

off at Meadow Creek Golf Resort, a<br />

sumptuous 6,696-yard, par-72 course<br />

set among towering pines and open<br />

meadows. Then soak awhile at nearby<br />

Zims Hot Springs, a year-round natural<br />

hot springs resort with two large pools.<br />

At New Meadows, each fork in the<br />

road will lead you to new adventures.<br />

Take Highway 55 into the recreation<br />

heartland of Valley County—McCall,<br />

Donnelly, and Cascade. Take Highway<br />

95 toward Cambridge and you’ll find<br />

the southern gateway to Hells Canyon.<br />

From Cambridge, take Highway 71 west,<br />

and then take the 22-mile Hells Canyon<br />

Backcountry Byway. You’ll meander<br />

beside a trio of reservoirs along the<br />

Snake River—Brownlee, Oxbow, and<br />

Hells Canyon—before arriving at Hells<br />

Canyon Dam. It’s a great way to see the<br />

canyon by car. Once there, if you’re itching<br />

to raft or jet boat deeper into the<br />

canyon, outfitters are available.<br />

of that vacation<br />

to<br />

reMeMBer.

Western Boise Valley<br />

The broad valley west of Boise, with its<br />

twin cities of Nampa and Caldwell, is a<br />

rich agricultural region that produces<br />

a cornucopia of products, from fruits<br />

and vegetables to livestock and grapes.<br />

You can savor the region’s flavor at<br />

the numerous fruit stands and farmers’<br />

markets that dot the area. Take in<br />

a winery tour to sample local wines,<br />

attend the Cherry Festival in Emmett<br />

in mid-June or the Lavender Merchant<br />

Lavender Festival in mid-July.<br />

Meridian and Eagle are fast-growing<br />

neighbors of Boise, each with familyfriendly,<br />

gracious neighborhoods and<br />

some of the best golf courses in <strong>Idaho</strong>.<br />

If you are traveling with children, don’t<br />

pass up Roaring Springs Water Park<br />

and the adjacent Wahooz Family Fun<br />

Zone in Meridian. If it is thrills and chills<br />

you seek, spend a day at the Firebird<br />

Raceway or the Western <strong>Idaho</strong> State<br />

Fair in August. Birding enthusiasts will<br />

want to bring binoculars and a camera<br />

when they visit Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge<br />

at Lake Lowell, west of Nampa. It is<br />

set along a major flyway for migrating<br />

waterfowl and songbirds.<br />

For a step back in time, take your whole<br />

family to the Warhawk Air Museum<br />

in Nampa, which showcases vintage<br />

World War II artifacts, including a<br />

wedding dress made from a parachute<br />

and aircraft used in the films “Pearl<br />

Harbor” and “Valkyrie.” The twin cities<br />

of Caldwell and Nampa have much in<br />

common. They share an agricultural<br />

heritage, a major college, and an outstanding<br />

rodeo. In July, the Snake River<br />

Stampede takes over the <strong>Idaho</strong> Center<br />

in Nampa, and in August the evenings<br />

heat up with the Caldwell Night<br />

Rodeo—genuine family entertainment<br />

with real cowboys, clowns, and some of<br />

the best rodeo action around. In Weiser,<br />

the National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest<br />

in June, now more than 60 years young,<br />

offers easygoing, down-home entertainment<br />

for the entire family.<br />

Elmore County<br />

Mountain Home offers considerable<br />

outdoor recreation in both summer and<br />

winter. Explore Bruneau Dunes State<br />

Park, with the tallest, freestanding sand<br />

« Happy trails »<br />

dunes in North America at 470 feet tall.<br />

Enjoy the public celestial observatory,<br />

picnic grounds, and lakes for fishing<br />

and swimming, prime camping locations,<br />

and a welcoming visitor center.<br />

The adventurous might journey a bit<br />

farther down the road to peer into the<br />

1,200-foot-deep Bruneau Canyon.<br />

In the summer, nearby C.J. Strike and<br />

Anderson Ranch reservoirs await<br />

anglers and boaters. In the winter, the<br />

open country and rolling hills of Elmore<br />

County are perfect for snowmobiling<br />

and kite boarding.<br />

A worthwhile detour at Glenns Ferry will<br />

bring you to Three Island Crossing State<br />

Park, located near a significant historical<br />

river crossing on the Oregon Trail.<br />

At the interpretive center, learn about<br />

the largest mass migration in American<br />

history, or venture across the river to<br />

view the historic islands from a high<br />

bluff. Then stop at nearby Carmela<br />

Winery for a taste of the local vintage,<br />

or take in a round at Vineyard Greens<br />

Golf Course.<br />

Owyhee County<br />

Vast Owyhee County is home to magnificent<br />

river gorges and an expansive<br />

high desert. The Morley Nelson Snake<br />

River Birds of Prey National Conservation<br />

Area encompasses 485,000 acres,<br />

including the canyon walls in which<br />

falcons, eagles, owls, and hawks nest.<br />

The Bruneau and Owyhee river canyons<br />

are stunning, multicolored chasms in<br />

an isolated desert landscape. For an<br />

unforgettable river experience, catch<br />

a ride with an outfitter on one of these<br />

rivers during the short spring season<br />

and view stunning rocks jutting almost<br />

Silver City<br />

Warhawk Air Museum<br />

1,000 feet above the water. Near<br />

Grandview, stop at Lawson’s<br />

Emu-Z-Um, a former emu ranch that<br />

is now a museum with authentic<br />

replicas of an 1860s-era town, Native<br />

American artifacts, and the Silver City<br />

Schoolhouse Museum. At Givens Hot<br />

Springs nearby, pause to soak your<br />

tired bones in the natural mineral<br />

pools or pitch a tent to stay the night<br />

at a campground.<br />

For a fascinating excursion into<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s mining past, take a day trip<br />

to the historic mining town of Silver<br />

City, high in the Owyhee Mountains.<br />

The old <strong>Idaho</strong> Hotel, built in 1863 and<br />

moved to its current site in 1866, is a<br />

step back in time and still welcomes<br />

guests. Stroll around to see the<br />

pioneer cemetery, the old Masonic<br />

Hall, and other original structures. At<br />

its height, Silver City was one of the<br />

finest mining towns in the West. (High<br />

clearance vehicles are recommended.)<br />

Payette River<br />

Boise Foothills<br />

Southwestern <strong>Idaho</strong> is a landscape that transitions from timbered peaks of the heartland to <strong>Idaho</strong>’s<br />

largest city, and on to sand dunes and high desert. What’s special about this region is how the lines<br />

blur between the tamed and untamed, so you can choose the perfect degree of wilderness.<br />

» Southwestern <strong>Idaho</strong> has more faces<br />

than a pocketful of pennies and endless<br />

choices of what to do. Rivers, lakes,<br />

valleys, and heavenly mountains are<br />

all within the 10 counties that make up<br />

this corner of the state. The highest<br />

percentage of federally managed land<br />

in the state is here, and that means<br />

endless opportunities to get out and<br />

have some fun.<br />

» Boating, fishing, canoeing, and jetskiing<br />

are popular activities on Payette<br />

Lake and Cascade, Lucky Peak, Arrowrock,<br />

and Anderson Ranch reservoirs,<br />

most of which are stocked with fish,<br />

too. Or you can hike into the upper<br />

reaches of the Payette and Boise<br />

National Forests to find an alpine<br />

lake all to yourself.<br />

» Rafting one of the three forks of the<br />

Payette River is a popular summer<br />

activity. Practice your kayaking skills at<br />

Kelly’s Whitewater Park or bungee surf<br />

« Think outside the box office »<br />

on the Boise River. For a tamer river<br />

experience, consider floating along the<br />

tranquil Boise River through downtown<br />

from one of the city’s tree-lined parks<br />

to another.<br />

» For an interesting backcountry drive<br />

from Boise, pack your binoculars<br />

and cameras, then take the Western<br />

Heritage Historic Byway south to the<br />

Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of<br />

Prey National Conservation Area to<br />

view these high fliers in their natural<br />

habitat.<br />

While in the area, be sure to visit<br />

the unique Walter’s Ferry, where an<br />

unusual nature walk is accompanied by<br />

an eclectic assortment of birdhouses,<br />

quotations, statues, spiritual symbols,<br />

and even a flock of white peacocks.<br />

» The truly daring adventurers might<br />

want to add a zip line tour to their<br />

activity list. Near Donnelly is the<br />

Tamarack Canopy Zipline Tour, voted<br />

a Top 10 in zip line tours by USA Today.<br />

In Horseshoe Bend, just north of Boise,<br />

is Zip <strong>Idaho</strong>, where you can soak in the<br />

beauty below on one of seven zip lines<br />

spanning up to 1,800 feet.<br />

» Finally, the foothills above Boise<br />

are home to numerous mountain bike<br />

trails. For even steeper terrain, head to<br />

Bogus Basin, Brundage, or Tamarack<br />

resorts for lift-served mountain biking<br />

in summer, and skiing and snowboarding<br />

in winter.<br />

« The perfect blend of nightlife and day life »<br />

» McCall SummerFest is a five-day<br />

festival of classical chamber music<br />

and jazz concerts held at multiple<br />

venues around town. The <strong>Idaho</strong>-Down<br />

is a collaboration of <strong>Idaho</strong> musicians<br />

and artists who hold an annual festival<br />

in the summer at Brundage Mountain<br />

Resort. Just a bit south, the Summer<br />

Music Festival in mid-July brings exceptional<br />

acts to the tiny historical town of<br />

Roseberry.<br />

» Live theater is alive year-round in<br />

southwest <strong>Idaho</strong>. The <strong>Idaho</strong> Shakespeare<br />

Festival performs in an outdoor<br />

amphitheater near the Boise River.<br />

Check out productions offered by the<br />

Boise Contemporary Theater in BoDo,<br />

the Knock’em Dead Dinner Theater, or<br />

the Boise Little Theater. Consider a ride<br />

to Garden Valley to experience classic<br />

Broadway musicals under the stars at<br />

Starlight Mountain Theater.<br />

for outstanding football, offers both<br />

student and professional performances<br />

year-round at a variety of venues. The<br />

Boise Philharmonic Orchestra and<br />

Ballet <strong>Idaho</strong> perform at the Morrison<br />

Center for the Performing Arts between<br />

South central <strong>Idaho</strong> was named the<br />

“Magic Valley” for a very good reason:<br />

Some of America’s most productive farmlands,<br />

carved from the rock and sagebrush<br />

and nourished by the water of the Snake<br />

River, magically appear. More wonders<br />

await if you take time to venture off the<br />

interstate. Discover a world much different<br />

than what you might expect. Explore an<br />

area in which ancient geological mysteries<br />

come to life. You’ll find top-notch fishing<br />

and hunting. You’ll discover diverse and<br />

unique recreation pursuits: caving, BASE<br />

jumping, rock climbing, skiing, and snowshoeing.<br />

You will be astonished at the<br />

thundering waterfalls and massive canyons;<br />

surprised at how cold an ice cave is on<br />

a hot summer day, and enchanted with<br />

the easy, relaxed countryside of beautiful<br />

Hagerman Valley. Millions of years ago,<br />

the same volcanic activity that today lies<br />

beneath Yellowstone National Park made<br />

this part of <strong>Idaho</strong> a hot spot, too. As you<br />

travel the region, you will see the effects of<br />

many geological upheavals in the stunning<br />

features of the region: lava flows, the<br />

Snake River Canyon, Rock Creek Canyon,<br />

Malad Gorge, the Great Rift, and City<br />

of Rocks.<br />

« Historical Trails<br />

Prior to completion of the railroad in<br />

1869, more than half a million people<br />

literally walked through <strong>Idaho</strong> and<br />

across the west on the Oregon Trail,<br />

the greatest migration in American<br />

history. Several alternative trails cross<br />

southern <strong>Idaho</strong> as well. Along the<br />

California Trail at City of Rocks, intrepid<br />

pioneers inscribed their names in axle<br />

grease on the great spires.<br />

South central <strong>Idaho</strong> was the place<br />

to cross the Snake River, at either<br />

Thousand Springs or Three Island<br />

Crossing. Wagon ruts can still be<br />

seen across southern <strong>Idaho</strong>.<br />

parksandrecreation.idaho.gov<br />

Burley/Rupert<br />

East of Twin Falls is Burley, set along the<br />

Snake River, with several parks that are<br />

ideal for swimming, fishing, or waterskiing.<br />

Each June, the <strong>Idaho</strong> Regatta<br />

takes place here—a three-day speedboat<br />

spectacular featuring the nation’s<br />

finest flat-bottom boats that reach top<br />

speeds of more than 140 mph.<br />

Northeast of Burley is Rupert, a charming<br />

small city with a town square<br />

adorned by the beautifully restored<br />

Wilson Theater. A short drive northeast<br />

of the town is Lake Walcott and the<br />

25-mile-long Minidoka National Wildlife<br />

Refuge. The gentle waters here favor<br />

the growth of aquatic plants that provide<br />

food for waterfowl and fish. Lake<br />

Walcott State Park on the northwest<br />

end of the lake is a good spot for camping<br />

and fishing, with a boat ramp and<br />

developed facilities.<br />

If the geology of the area hasn’t inspired<br />

you yet, ask the staff at the Mini-Cassia<br />

Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center<br />

about the Great Rift, one of only two<br />

such geologic features on earth. A<br />

primary fissure system responsible<br />

for much of the fascinating geology of<br />

south central <strong>Idaho</strong>, the Great Rift is the<br />

« For the upwardly mobile »<br />

Lake Walcott State Park<br />

most recent volcanic rift in the U.S.,<br />

extending more than 65 miles across<br />

the Snake River Plain. At 635 square<br />

miles, it’s the earth’s largest and deepest<br />

rift. Over the last 115,000 years,<br />

it has emitted lava flows that have<br />

resulted in spatter cones, ice caves and<br />

cinder cones.<br />

South of Burley, there is more outstanding<br />

and unusual geology at Castle Rocks<br />

State Park and City of Rocks National<br />

Reserve. Huge granite columns, up to<br />

2.5 billion years old and 60 stories high,<br />

loom over a 500-acre windswept valley.<br />

There are more than 700 charted routes<br />

for the finest granite-crag rock climbing<br />

anywhere. The City of Rocks is also<br />

an important California Trail landmark.<br />

Today, you can still see the pioneers’<br />

inscriptions on rocks. On your way to<br />

City of Rocks, you’ll pass Oakley, a town<br />

founded by Mormon emigrants in 1878.<br />

The entire town is listed on the National<br />

Register of Historic Places due to the<br />

outstanding collection of old stone and<br />

brick buildings.<br />

As you drive through the area, you<br />

can’t help but notice Cache Peak, the<br />

highest mountain in <strong>Idaho</strong> south of the<br />

Snake River (10,339 feet). One of the<br />

oldest and best of <strong>Idaho</strong>’s ski resorts is<br />

here just outside of Albion—Pomerelle<br />

Mountain Resort. This small, familyowned<br />

ski area is a great place for<br />

winter fun, especially for young children<br />

just learning to ski or snowboard. If<br />

snowmobiling is your passion, the area<br />

provides a variety of terrain and consistent<br />

snow quality. In summer, Pomerelle<br />

offers scenic chairlift rides for mountain<br />

biking or hiking, as well as volleyball<br />

and horseshoe pits.<br />

Shoshone Falls<br />

Twin Falls<br />

The heart of south central <strong>Idaho</strong> is the mighty Snake River; harnessing all that water power in 1905<br />

changed the face of the region. Water transformed the dry southern <strong>Idaho</strong> desert into productive<br />

agricultural land and the resulting reservoirs into recreation havens.<br />

» Each summer, the best boat racers<br />

in the world and their fans converge<br />

on the Snake River for three days of<br />

crowd-pleasing speed at the <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

Regatta, held in Burley each year in late<br />

June. There is whitewater rafting and<br />

river cruises further west on the river<br />

and, of course, fishing for bass, catfish,<br />

perch, and trout.<br />

» Rock climbers can choose from<br />

hundreds of routes in Castle Rocks<br />

State Park and City of Rocks National<br />

Monument for superb technical climbing.<br />

Camping, hiking, mountain biking,<br />

and horseback riding are also popular<br />

activities in the midst of this dramatic<br />

backdrop along the California Trail.<br />

There are also rock walls at Dierkes<br />

Lake in Twin Falls—enhance your skills<br />

while the rest of the family swims the<br />

lake or just relaxes under shady trees.<br />

« Rock out solo or with the family »<br />

» The expansive farmland does give<br />

way to mountain getaways. Near Twin<br />

Falls, a place the locals call the “South<br />

Hills” is something of an exclusive<br />

playground for all seasons. Summer<br />

finds hikers and horses sharing many<br />

of the trails that wind through the hills<br />

and valleys, while in winter, the whir of<br />

snowmobiles can be heard in the crisp<br />

mountain air.<br />

» Two resorts—Magic Mountain near<br />

Twin Falls and Pomerelle Mountain<br />

Resort near Albion—are both familyfriendly<br />

ski areas suitable for beginners<br />

of all ages. When the snow melts,<br />

Pomerelle’s summer operation includes<br />

chairlift rides, mountain biking, hiking,<br />

horseshoes, and disc golf.<br />

» True adventurists will want to try<br />

the most exhilarating sport in the<br />

area—BASE jumping off Perrine Bridge.<br />

City of Rocks<br />

The landmark bridge stretches 1,500<br />

feet across the Snake River Canyon<br />

north of Twin Falls a stunning 500 feet.<br />

above the river. Jumpers clutching their<br />

parachutes climb over the railing to<br />

free-fall a few moments, only to land<br />

beside the river as onlookers watch.<br />

Want to learn more about this daredevil<br />

sport for which Twin Falls has become<br />

known? Stop in at the visitor center<br />

near the bridge.<br />

cReATion


Oakley<br />

» Life in south central <strong>Idaho</strong> revolves<br />

around the Snake River. As a visitor,<br />

you can do much more than peer<br />

down on the river from the overlook at<br />

Perrine Bridge. Put on walking shoes<br />

to hike the Snake River Trail, which<br />

descends down into the canyon from<br />

several points on the southern rim. The<br />

more adventurous will want to raft the<br />

exciting Murtaugh section of the Snake<br />

River or head to Zip the Snake, located<br />

in the parking lot of the Canyon Springs<br />

Golf Course, where professional guides<br />

are ready to take you down the canyon<br />

on a zip line.<br />

» Looking for a more leisurely way to<br />

spend a summer day? Relax near the<br />

water at Centennial Park on the canyon<br />

floor or shop at unusual stores like<br />

Rudy’s—A Cook’s Paradise, which is<br />

the oldest continuously operating retail<br />

store in Twin Falls or Annie’s Lavender<br />

and Coffee, where you can purchase<br />

lavender essential oils, soaps, and<br />

culinary ingredients, while picking up<br />

a latte. Play golf at one of the riverside<br />

golf courses or soak in a hot springs<br />

near Hagerman.<br />

Perrine Bridge<br />

Hagerman Horse<br />

Impressive cultural and culinary events bubble up in south<br />

central <strong>Idaho</strong>, making this magical valley a place visitors love<br />

so much that they often decide to stay a few more days.<br />

« Fall head over hiking boots in love »<br />

» If you thought potatoes were the only<br />

food for which <strong>Idaho</strong> was famous, think<br />

again. More than 70 percent of the trout<br />

used in American cuisine is reared in<br />

this region, where crystal-clear, natural<br />

springs provide the perfect habitat.<br />

Visit Clear Springs Foods in Buhl, the<br />

world’s largest producer of rainbow<br />

trout, which raises more than 20 million<br />

pounds each year.<br />

» Culinary options in Twin Falls range<br />

from the down-home, always bustling<br />

Buffalo Café to the elegant Canyon<br />

Crest Event Center, or Elevation 486,<br />

both strategically placed on the canyon<br />

rim with creative menus and stunning<br />

views. For a truly innovative meal, head<br />

to the Snake River Grill in Hagerman,<br />

where Cordon Bleu and wilderness<br />

cooking program host Kirt Martin and<br />

his staff prepare locally grown catfish,<br />

alligator, and trout. And don’t miss the<br />

potato ice cream at Cloverleaf Creamery<br />

in Buhl, where the staff serves up huge<br />

scoops of ice cream in unusual flavors,<br />

like black licorice and vanilla cloverleaf.<br />

You can even meet the cows!<br />

Gooding City of Rocks<br />

» After the delight of fresh, homemade<br />

ice cream, you can visit USDA-certified<br />

organic vineyard Holesinsky Winery in<br />

Buhl and taste the results of its French<br />

winemaking techniques.<br />

» To look deeper into how this highdesert<br />

area transformed into such<br />

productive farmland, there are several<br />

museums to consider: the <strong>Idaho</strong> Farm<br />

& Ranch Museum, the Twin Falls County<br />

Historical Museum, the Minidoka<br />

County Historical Museum, and Rock<br />

Creek Station, an early settlement.<br />

...or just be.


Experience Bear Lake online<br />

at visitidaho.org/virtualtours<br />

All the routes into southeastern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> will lead you through expansive<br />

landscapes that will remind you of the<br />

Old West. In this part of <strong>Idaho</strong> lies its<br />

oldest town, Franklin, founded by<br />

Mormon pioneers in 1860. In southeastern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, you’ll find working guest ranches,<br />

the Shoshone-Bannock Indian reservation,<br />

hot springs, and even the getaway route<br />

of Butch Cassidy. Here, “The West” really<br />

does live on. You can follow the history<br />

and tradition of the region’s Indian tribes<br />

at the Sho-Ban Tribal Museum. Throughout<br />

this area of <strong>Idaho</strong>, you can walk along an<br />

emigrant trail and experience frontier life<br />

in several other interpretive museums and<br />

displays. Touch the rocks where pioneers<br />

and Indians once collided. Watch thrilling<br />

rodeo action, immerse yourself in one of<br />

the West’s best hot springs, or experience<br />

the vivid art and culture scene at <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

State University in Pocatello. Throughout<br />

the region, you’ll be close to great hunting,<br />

fishing, and camping. When the snow flies,<br />

the hills are softly blanketed in powder,<br />

perfect for snowmobiling or downhill<br />

skiing at Pebble Creek, just a stone’s<br />

throw from Pocatello. With a visit to<br />

southeastern <strong>Idaho</strong>, you’ll gain a sense<br />

of adventure in a land that harkens back<br />

to its western heritage.<br />

American Falls<br />

When the hills along I-86 begin to emit<br />

the perfume of aromatic juniper trees,<br />

you’ll be nearing American Falls and<br />

Massacre Rocks State Park, a place<br />

whose history is more than the name<br />

suggests. The great Bonneville Flood,<br />

which drained the lake that once<br />

covered much of Utah, surged through<br />

Red Rock Pass and into the Snake River<br />

more than 16,000 years ago. In those<br />

few months, the flow was four times<br />

that of the Amazon River, making this<br />

cataclysmic event the second-largest<br />

flood in the geologic history of the<br />

world. Eons later, a quarrel between<br />

emigrants and local Indians happened<br />

near here, leading to the name “Massacre<br />

Rocks.” Today, it’s the site of<br />

a popular state park, where you can<br />

explore the Oregon Trail, camp, hike,<br />

or view wildlife. More than 200 species<br />

of birds, including Canada geese, blue<br />

herons, pelicans, and bald eagles, have<br />

been spotted here.<br />

The pleasant town of American Falls<br />

is peacefully located on the southern<br />

banks of the state’s largest reservoir,<br />

American Falls Reservoir. With three<br />

boat ramps north of the dam, the recreational<br />

opportunities are abundant.<br />

Come and plAy<br />

in adventure’s<br />

BacKyard.

« Historic Trails<br />

The movement of travelers across<br />

the Oregon Trail became the greatest<br />

migration in American history. Between<br />

1843 and 1869, more than half<br />

a million emigrants undertook the<br />

arduous journey to the West. They<br />

entered <strong>Idaho</strong> near Montpelier and<br />

headed toward Fort Hall for a respite<br />

from the trek. Trails multiplied here<br />

as new routes west were etched into<br />

the landscape. Register Rock, with<br />

emigrant inscriptions, is now part<br />

of Massacre Rocks State Park, and<br />

the National Oregon/California Trail<br />

Interpretive Center is located<br />

at Montpelier.<br />

oregontrailcenter.org<br />

Bear Lake<br />

A “hidden gem” of a destination,<br />

Bear Lake shares its beauty with both<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> and Utah. The striking turquoise<br />

blue color is the result of tiny soluble<br />

carbonates in the water. At midday, the<br />

water is turquoise, while at sunrise and<br />

sunset, it turns into a dazzling array of<br />

reds, yellows, and pinks. At 120 square<br />

miles, the lake is a haven for swimming,<br />

waterskiing, boating, and fishing. The<br />

wide expanse of the lake and its altitude<br />

make it ideal for sailing as well.<br />

On the north shore of the lake is Bear<br />

Lake National Wildlife Refuge—home<br />

to Sandhill Cranes, ducks, and numerous<br />

species of songbirds. Check with<br />

the headquarters in nearby Montpelier<br />

for activities allowed at the refuge.<br />

Two units of Bear Lake State Park are<br />

situated on the north and east ends of<br />

the lake for visitors to enjoy. With more<br />

than five miles of sandy beaches, there<br />

is access to all water activities, and the<br />

gradual slope of the lake bottom makes<br />

for enormous swimming areas. Naturally,<br />

there are trout for the fishermen.<br />

But in the winter, you can fish for the<br />

Bonneville Cisco, a sardine-like whitefish<br />

found nowhere else on earth.<br />

« Filled with plenty of natural characters »<br />

Bear Lake has more to offer than just<br />

scenic views and recreation. During<br />

the summer, the small town heats up<br />

for the Bear Lake Fun Fly Kite Festival,<br />

Outdoor Heritage Days, and Bear Lake<br />

Raspberry Days—opportunities to<br />

experience this lakeside resort area’s<br />

small-town charm and culture.<br />

Be sure to stop in Paris. While you<br />

won’t see the Eiffel Tower, you will see<br />

the historic and beautifully restored<br />

Paris Tabernacle, open for tours in<br />

the summer. Built in 1889 in the<br />

Romanesque-style architecture, it is<br />

recognized as one of the true pioneer<br />

landmarks of the West and is listed on<br />

the National Register of Historic Places.<br />

If you like to discover natural wonders<br />

off the beaten path, Minnetonka Cave<br />

just might interest you. This is the largest<br />

developed limestone cave in <strong>Idaho</strong>. Tours<br />

through a half-mile of stalactites and<br />

stalagmites are available from June to<br />

September (not recommended for those<br />

with health conditions or access issues).<br />

For those seeking a tamer tour, check<br />

out the National Oregon/California Trail<br />

Interpretive Center in Montpelier. Built<br />

on the site of the historic Clover Creek<br />

Encampment, it guides you experientially<br />

on the 2,000-mile, five-month<br />

journey along the Oregon Trail in a<br />

computer-simulated covered wagon.<br />

Blackfoot<br />

Follow the Pioneer Historic Byway to the<br />

Blackfoot Reservoir and Blackfoot River<br />

to fish for rainbow and cutthroat trout.<br />

The community of Blackfoot is a city<br />

with an abundance of parks and a challenging<br />

18-hole municipal golf course<br />

that is considered one of <strong>Idaho</strong>’s best.<br />

Be sure to stop at the <strong>Idaho</strong> Potato<br />

Museum on Northwest Main Street<br />

(open all year). The museum includes<br />

dozens of fun and educational exhibits<br />

featuring <strong>Idaho</strong>’s most famous product<br />

and houses displays of old farming<br />

equipment, samples of 1,600-year-old<br />

Peruvian vessels, and a visual presentation<br />

about the potato industry in <strong>Idaho</strong>.<br />

At the Spud Cellar Gift Shop, you can<br />

purchase almost any potato gift imaginable,<br />

including T-shirts, potato lotion,<br />

and potato fudge.<br />

Lava Hot Springs<br />

Volcanic activity that has since moved eastward beneath Yellowstone National Park is the reason<br />

southeastern <strong>Idaho</strong> is still hot—with springs, that is. This region of <strong>Idaho</strong> has more developed hot<br />

springs resorts than any other.<br />

» Known always to the Shoshone-Bannock<br />

Tribes as “healing waters,” the<br />

waters now circling in four hot pools<br />

at Lava Hot Springs continue to attract<br />

those who love to soak. For the rest of<br />

the family, the town offers a huge swimming<br />

pool complex with diving boards<br />

and extensive water slides. Elsewhere<br />

in the region are Downata Hot Springs,<br />

Bear Lake Hot Springs, Indian Springs<br />

Resort, Riverdale Resort, and Maple<br />

Grove Hot Springs.<br />

» Don’t slip into those healing waters<br />

just yet. That’s an après activity, and<br />

you need to work out first. Southeastern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> is a hikers’ wonderland with<br />

peaks nearing 10,000 feet. There are<br />

streams for fishing, trails for biking,<br />

rivers to float, and relatively few people<br />

given what a beautiful area this is.<br />

For the serious trekker, the 55-mile<br />

Highline Trail spans the region from<br />

Soda Springs to the Utah border. You<br />

« Pause.

Grand Concert Hall. Many of the music,<br />

dance, and theater events in Pocatello are<br />

held at the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens<br />

Performing Arts Center, set on a hilltop<br />

overlooking <strong>Idaho</strong> State University and<br />

the cityscape beyond.<br />

» For a bit of the western hospitality<br />

southeastern <strong>Idaho</strong> is known for, check<br />

out the Green “T” Bar and Grill in<br />

Pocatello, famous for its burgers and a<br />

mechanical bull. For something completely<br />

different, try Senang Wine Bar and Tapas<br />

Bistro, offering a world of tastes and<br />

more than 150 international and domestic<br />

wines. You have two options in the area<br />

to pair fine dining with entertainment:<br />

Centerand the Westside Player Dinner<br />

Theater.<br />

» For traditional Indian dances, crafts,<br />

and an all-Indian rodeo, come to the<br />

annual Shoshone-Bannock Indian Festival,<br />

held in August. The Malad Valley Welsh<br />

Holt Arena, Pocatello<br />

Festival, the last weekend in June, promises<br />

food, music, films, heritage games<br />

and crafts, plus workshops on Welsh<br />

history and culture.<br />

paintings, photographs, and porcelain art<br />

by professional artists as well as local art<br />

students. The center’s premier event is the<br />

Sagebrush Arts Fest, which offers free art<br />

activities for children, food vendors, and<br />

When you first venture into eastern<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, you’ll notice the broad valley<br />

that stretches between the famed Teton<br />

Mountains on the east and the majestic<br />

Lemhi Range on the west. This open space<br />

surrounds the winding Snake River and is<br />

the heart of production of <strong>Idaho</strong>’s claim<br />

to fame—the <strong>Idaho</strong> potato. But it’s the<br />

nearby mountains that give this part of the<br />

state its scenic character. Eastern <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

is a land where the snowcapped peaks of<br />

the Grand Tetons feed thundering waterfalls,<br />

glistening lakes, and free-flowing<br />

rivers. It is a place where elk and moose<br />

graze lazily in the grasslands, a spot where<br />

you can watch wild swans fly and eagles<br />

soar. It is an accessible area that remains<br />

uncompromised to this day. The region<br />

has always attracted adventurers, from<br />

Andrew Henry, who established Fort Henry<br />

in 1811 near the town of St. Anthony, to<br />

today’s backcountry trekkers. As a neighbor<br />

to the Yellowstone and Grand Teton<br />

National Parks, it shares much of the same<br />

spectacular beauty and awesome adventure—but<br />

without the crowds. Stop in at a<br />

local visitor center to pick up a copy of the<br />

National Geographic Greater Yellowstone<br />

Geotourism map.<br />
