Adventure Awaits

    Nearby Fun in the Sun

    For those who haven’t explored Idaho much, there’s much more than just russets and horses. But for those of us that know the luscious landscape of Idaho, this is your reminder to keep exploring.

    Paddle Boarding

    Pack your paddleboards and tubes and head to Crouch for a great outdoor adventure! Put in at the Tie Creek Campground and float for an hour into Crouch and head to Two River Grill for dinner. There are five campgrounds in the area to book.

    Hot Springs

    The canyon along the South Fork is scenic bliss—rushing whitewater and a scaling canyon of expansive forest. Drive through Crouch and run into a mecca of hot springs: Pine Flats, Kirkham, Warm Springs, and Bonneville. Watch out for the skinny dippers at Bonneville and be sure to bring plenty of water.

    Fishing

    Discover the beauty of Lake Walcott State Park. A 65-acre park nestled on the shores of Lake Walcott, which boasts 11,000 acres of surface area. Anglers of all skill levels will love the plentiful large and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, and yellow perch. It also has plenty of shade on land with a great disc golf course. Bonus points for finding the secret hot springs where you can hunt arrowheads.

    Mountain Biking

    Trail Creek in Sun Valley is beautiful. The long stretch of easy trail is canopied with shade as you glide up and down through pines and aspens. A good solid work out before you head back to town for dinner. Life is good!

    Hiking

    Past Trail Creek is a forty-five-minute drive through Galena Summit to Redfish Lake. Take the boat trip tour across lake and hike the Lily Pad trail to the waterfall. A scenic surrounding like Lord of the Rings, minus the CGI effects.

    Backpacking

    Elevated bliss. The stint to Alice Lake is a steady climb of 11 miles—a journey you’ll find fulfilling with towering mountain peaks and clear glacier water. All the essentials needed for camping overnight are required. Fishing in the morning and evening is promising and the deer are present. Black bears have been sighted in the area so come prepared!
