Photos of Idaho Snowshoeing Trails

22 hours ago

My wife and I hiked this trail today on 2/20. It was the first time we had been to this portion of the park even though we live nearby. The south road was closed to traffic. If you are not familiar with the area, I recommend getting a map for 1 dollar at the visitor center. We started from the visitor center and walked the path behind it, which I believe comes out on Ranger Rd. You can take a left on this road and then a right on South Rd shortly thereafter. Walk up south road and you’ll find the High Point trailhead a little ways on the right hand side. The trail had a lot of ice and snow patches. We didn’t see any other people on the trail. It was silent and beautiful. After crossing the small bridge, you get to go up what another user described as a goat path. That is an accurate description as you gain a good amount of elevation quickly through rocks and small downed trees. I enjoyed the goat path up quite a bit. A friend and I will be back in a few days to do this and the Scout Trail to Bernard Peak. As another user recommended, I’d get the AllTrails app in case you get off course. It came in handy for us when we had veered off to the left once during the second segment. We walked around on the snowshoe trail and a few others to finish the day with a 6.8 mile walk. It was 32 degrees when we finished the hike and chillier earlier in the morning. I’m hooked on this trail.
