I was able to experience most of the spectacular drive during a quick trip through the area. I would love to come back to explore some of the amazing options along the route.

Fantastic drive along the Salmon River and through the mountains. Low traffic, plenty of areas to park, camp and view the scenery. Pulled a 32' RV with no issues. Easy gas/diesel in Challis.

HikingNo shade

Hike was easy, more of a scenic/photo op. No designated trail just a few trails if explored they'll make a loop around the rock sand back to the two track.

Mountain bikingNo shade

I parked my vehicle and biked this loop. The uphill was a little tough as it was my first ride this year but there was plenty of downhill to make up for it! Overall it was fun and I’d do it again. The ‘bike path’ is actually the road but there is plenty of room for cars to get around so you don’t hold up traffic. I was able to stop whenever and take some nice pics! It was hot with no shade so I suggest bring plenty of water!

Park in the lot just after the cattle guard. Follow the two track up as it becomes the trail. It appears that there was more to explore by following a path that crosses a downed fence but I did my walk and saw the cool rocks so that was it for me!

This is NOT a trail. It is a grave/dirt road. There are no signs. The river is Btful but it’s not next to the river, there’s brush & trees between the road & the river. I don’t recommend this.

Pretty drive through Craters of the Moon. Lots of cool lava formations. Fun hiking trails all along the route.

Not as much a trail as it is a road - hiking the tracks or the road is your choice I’ve done both - beautiful scenery and if you’re in the tracks closer to the water and the dogs loved it. As soon as you take the left off of the hwy the app will say you are here... you aren’t so I recommend to follow the road and when it comes to a Y park car there and hike to the left on the road or drop down to the tracks- I took a picture of car parked at Y and you can pull to either side- just done as a reference for you. Wildlife abundant - and if your dog likes to chase porcupines I recommend a leash for sure. You can hike it as far as you want and no need to limit it as the app suggests. Happy hiking!

This is more of a drive, as it was on a dirt road and would actually be best for a 4 wheeler or something. Beautiful views but not for hiking. There were also no sign posts marking any trail heads or anything just an area information sign.

Definitely not safe for bicycles. But if you do ride, be sure to have a bright rear strobe to warn upcoming traffic. The description says "lightly trafficked". This would not be by characterization of the highway. Traffic might be on the lighter side, but it is fast moving. Very, very scenic with many campgrounds along the route. Be forewarned that in many places, the road is adjacent to the river, and there are no guardrails! You have to pay attention to the road and not on the natural beauty of the canyon/river. Well worth the drive. I will be back, this time to take more time and see all the numerous sights along the way.

It’s a road with little to no shoulder. Not safe to bike given the speed and sharp corners.

This is indeed a beautiful drive! It's neat seeing the mountains far out in the distance and as you approach the valley, you literally drive in between them with mountains on each side literally hundreds to thousands of feet above you. As you head north of Ketchum you begin really climbing into the mountains and get your more typical high elevation passes and high-up long range views, before leveling out again a bit until you reach Stanley, which makes for a great base camp for the many nature options in the area.

Very nice drive. Gives you a view of the Teton Range from the west side rather than the more normal east side. Great drive for those flying into Idaho Falls on the way to Yellowstone.

10/24/17 - there weren’t any signs to show where the trail starts so we walked the road and then eventually went down on the old unused railroad tracks. The tracks run along the river. Beautiful fall colors. Easy but watch your step on the tracks.

There is no markings at all, for the hike. We followed the map. Alltrails provide. There is a dirt road and atv road. There is a railroad closer to the river. The view of the area and river is amazing.

A beautiful Sunday drive, twisting and turning through the Boise National Forest from Boise to Lowman. The highway offers many side roads which lead to various camp or hunting grounds.

I drove this from Victor to Ashton during the fires back in the 80's because the road was closed in Yellowstone. We wanted to get to the Firehole river swimming hole and this was the only way. Nice drive along the foothills of the Tetons

Choose your adventure in this park, well maintained paved educational trails. Most are stroller and wheelchair friendly to some that were slightly more challenging, all the ones we saw were easily car accessible. My 2 kids (under 10) stated it was "the best day ever"

I drove from Victor to Ashton on this route. It is very beautiful on a clear summer day. Good views of the Tetons as well as gently rolling fields of wheat. I never expected the Idaho side of the Tetons to be so stunning.

I'm from the East Coast so for me, this was an incredibly scenic drive for being on a highway. From Rexburg until you hit Caribou-Targhee National Forest, on a clear day you can see all the way to the Tetons. They loom over miles of undulating grain fields and the view is especially stunning at sunrise. Once you get into the national forest, the drive is forested but with the opportunity to see all kinds of wildlife such as moose and deer.

This is a scenic route follow 75 towards Boise. There are multiple hot springs if you drive inland. Road quality is OK in dry weather. Rutted

Horseback riding

Dad took me and the other kids here in the early 90's. I don't think we started at Warren, though... We took a boat down the river and a raft for part. Then we rode up on horseback. I remember shooting his .44 magnum when we got to the lookout. I also recall fishing (quite successfully!) at a decent sized lake somewhere out here. I was too young to be able to tell you where, though! I'd love to retrace these steps someday! I think anyone would have considered my dad a real mountain man out here at some point (he was a hunting guide around 1970).

This trail is not accessible anytime until July at the earliest due to annual snowfall and snowpack.
