Trail Overview

#560 in the Danskin Trail System is an easy ridgeline trail with steep hill climbs and descents. It is very similar to many of the other ridge line trails in this trail system, as it flows over a series of rolling green hillsides with expansive views of the Boise National Forest. There are very few trees in this forest, so the landscape is mostly grassy meadows with ground brush. The trail is fast and flowy because it is not too narrow, with not much exposure, on a wide ridge. Some spots are more narrow, and some sections are pretty steep. The trail goes up and down several times, probably having an equal amount of hill climbs as descents. Some of these steep sections have loose rock and brake bumps, adding more of a challenge. This is one of the closest trails to the southeast staging area (Case Creek Motorized Trailhead).

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.
