“Start at the defunct East Mountain Lookout and ride down into the Middle Fork Payette River Trail.”
— Joseph States
The Fool Creek Trail is a great midpoint access point to enter or exit the Middle Fork Payette River
Trail just upstream from Bull Creek and the 16 To 1 Trail Junction. Make sure you have good brakes going down and well-maintained chain going back up. The trail just near the Middle Fork Payette River
Trail is quite steep, and there are many sections of this route that will be difficult.
This makes a great start of a ride to Boiling Springs.
