“A remote Idaho mountain trail with amazing views and great riding.”— Wayne Hecker
Trail access is available via Iron Creek-Big Creek Trail #078 as well. So, if you want to make smaller or shorter rides, or in the event of an emergency use these. The trail meanders through Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, whitebark pine, spruce/fir forests, and grassy meadows. Snowbanks linger until late in the summer at the higher elevations, which is probably why it is called the Snowbank Trail.
This ride is primarily on decent singletrack with an occasional technical feature like a creek crossing, switchback, rock outcrop or steep climb/descent to keep things interesting. Watch for deer, elk, moose, wolves, and black bear as this is home to them all.
