Trail Overview

This fun and challenging single track goes through a dry low alpine terrain with tall grass, lots of overgrown shrubs, and sparsely separated coniferous trees with lots of pine needles on the ground. It's a narrow dirt trail that side-hills along the bottom of a mostly wide open hillside above a ravine, but the brush along the ravine is very thick. It has mild exposure because the trail is so narrow with a slope to the side of it, but isn't much of a drop-off to the side. The trail is mostly smooth and rock-free except for a few specific rock obstacles. The obstacles are like the face of a rock or boulder that you have to get over in the middle of the trail. With it being so narrow with a drop off to the side, this could be tricky for the inexperienced rider or those not used to trails in Idaho being so narrow on a ledge like this. The obstacles are moderate difficulty, more like the face of a rock rather than a big ledge up. The trail goes through several thick overgrown tree sections where visibility is limited and you have to duck for branches. It has lots of blind corners as it goes around each hillside, and several tight turns as it doubles back between each hill. This is a very busy riding area on weekends and weekdays so you have to keep your eyes up especially around the blind corners and through the brush sections. It intersects with ATV trails 502 and 503, and there is a section of 510 ATV trail that connects the two segments of single track. After the intersection, it has 3 or 4 creek crossings and climbs up to intersect with ATV 500. All trails are well-marked in this system.

Difficulty

The difficulty is due to a narrow trail, moderate rock obstacles, and overgrown wooded sections with poor visibility.

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.
