Trail Overview

This trail is fun for beginners and anyone looking to bypass riding the river road to get to more double and single track. The views of the Snake River Plain and the South Fork of the Snake River are very pretty, especially in the early spring/early summer. There are a lot of blooming wildflowers in the late spring/early summer that make this a very fun trip. There are no springs, so it is a mystery as to why the trail is named stinking springs.
