This route offers hikers lush, high meadow scenery but lacks water sources, so make sure to carry plenty of extra H2O. This trail is dog friendly, also equestrians and mountain biking is allowed on most trails in the Boise National Forest, simply check with rangers or your map prior. This trail is located in the Cascade Ranger District of the Boise National Forest. There is camping available throughout the Boise N.F.
