Summer Hiking in Idaho

Gem State Parks & Recreation Areas


Sawtooth Mountains

Sawtooth Mountains

Summer means dusting off your hiking boots and getting ready to hit the trails. Locals and visitors of Idaho have more than their share of scenic and challenging hiking trails ideal for couple or family outings – and even perfect for a solitary adventure.

A great example of your Idaho hiking possibilities is Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Set north of McCall in central Idaho, this 652,488-acre area is part of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, and features over 900 miles of hiking trails.

Trek down the Heaven's Gate National Recreation Trail, check out the Sawpit Saddle Viewpoint, or stop for lunch at one of the picnic tables along the Low Saddle Trailhead.

More trails are found in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, set in central Idaho in the well-known Sawtooth National Forest. Found northwest of Ketchum, the SNRA is a 778,000-acre hot spot for hiking trails, not to mention backpacking, hunting, and biking.

Hiking paths include the Mill Lake Trail, Miner Lake Trail, and the Prairie Lakes Trail – plus picnic areas, scenic overlooks, and the free-to-the-public Sawtooth National Recreation Area Visitor Center.

But that doesn't complete your summer in Idaho. Many other hiking and walking trails are found throughout the state. Try the six-mile hiking trail at Bruneau Dunes State Park in Mountain Home, stroll along the walking paths at Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge in Bonners Ferry, or hike your way to the deep ruts created by travelers of the Oregon Trail at the Milner Historic Recreation Area in Burley.
