Decent elevation gain for the first half. Great views. Make sure you bring plenty of water as there is not a lot of shade. Pretty heavy traffic.

Stinking Spring trailhead is on a dirt road turn off before Kelly Canyon ski resort. The area is used for ATV/OHV and mountain biking, but a good place to hike off season. From the base are machine tracked sagebrush switchbacks ideal for mountain biking. Then you reach #4 intersection before submitting. The top was muddy which turned to patches of snow to snow. Yack Tracks would be advisable if one is unfamiliar with hiking in snow. The pack at the top was hard and able to be walked on without sinking. The summit was full of Aspens and Alpine. Great Views of the Snake River plane along the ridge. The descent lead to a alternate loop through the Stinking Spring Canyon. Would recommend bringing extra water and snacks. Definitely a solid hike to do in the spring before the big stuff melts out.

Dad and the Kids. Started at 10am (too late). Mostly Sunny 70-80 deg. Back half of the trail was an ATV trail. The end did not have the expected view of the canyon. There is a side trail near the end that perhaps would have better views if we go back. Need to bring more water next time. The cactus were in bloom!

First to Review

First 2.5 miles are easy switchbacks through sage brush. The trail then joins up with an ATV trail, and gets a little steeper and rockier.
