Blue Lake Trail

  I hope when I die my son, friends and my two ex bro in laws will take a portion of my ashes and lay them to rest at the lake. I made my first trip here back in 1986. Both of my children were born in Boise and mountain home, and one has returned far north. The other, my son, a wicked machinist, talking such incredible skills and a brain that would make some older sliderule corkers blush.....

A visit to Idaho is not complete without
    some hiking. In the Salmon River Mountains there are many great hiking trails, there's no better way to enjoy these mountains. Put on your hiking shoes and hit the trail, Blue Lake Trail in Valley County, Idaho is just the place.
Blue Lake Trail is a long drive away from Boise City-Nampa but if you're looking for a good place to go hiking this is a good choice. At Blue Lake Trail you always meet someone from Cascade; Cascade State Park is a delightful place to check out. Life's too short to enjoy all the cool stuff in the Salmon River Mountains. If you came to camp Lake Cascade State Park - Big Sage is a good place to do that; a great place for whitewater paddling is Payette River -  
North Fork. Coming to this ski area is always a great idea. There's so much to do here at Blue Lake Trail that you need to camp here for a while, Lower French Creek is a good site for that. You can run the rapids of Payette River - North Fork in the neighborhood of Blue Lake Trail.
