Trail Overview

Danskin #301 is a challenging single track in the Boise National Forest full of creek crossings, rock obstacles, and narrow shelfy trail sections. Throughout the trail, it has about 6 creek crossings. The creek crossings themselves are smooth with some rocks, but sometimes there is a rocky section leading into the crossing which makes it more difficult. Each creek crossing is also through a very overgrown wooded section with many branches hanging low, almost like a tunnel. Part of the trail goes next to the creek with lots of shade from the trees, or elevated above the creek on a narrow trail, while other parts of the trail climb out from the creek onto a dry shelf hillside. It goes up and down several spines, requiring some side-hilling, and through some rock outcroppings. Sometimes there are two trails up and over the spines, and the lower trail is easier. One of the upper trails has a big four-foot-high rock creating a challenging obstacle. The north end of the trail continues up a ravine until it ends, while the south end of the trail connects to Danskin #300.

Difficulty

This is a challenging intermediate trail due to narrow shelfy sections, rock obstacles, and many creek crossings.

Access Description

The Danskin Trail System covers 60,000 acres and 150 miles of off-road trails in a high desert mountainous terrain. There are three staging areas. Bender Creek Trailhead on the north end, Willow Creek Trailhead on the east end, and Three Point Mountain Trailhead on the west end. This is a very popular riding area, but the trails are so expansive that even when the parking lots are full, you may not run into many people while out riding. The summer is likely very hot and dusty here, so the trails are best in spring and late fall.
