Rapid River Trail

  The rapid river trail is a n awsome trail. Start from the top at Blake lake and follow the trail along the creak that flows from blake lake down to rapid river. Along the way snack on thimble berries growing along the trail, but watch out for bears. If you don't see any, you will see lots of signs of their presence. It's a smooth trail from the top following along the rapid river. Most of the way you will drop about 6,000 feet over the course of the trail
    coming from high peaks down into a lush forest. As you drop the forest thins out unvailing wide open mountain sides, large rock cliffs and steep mountain sides. When you get to the end you come out at the rapid river fish hatchery
take a tour. August is the best time to hike. Fruits are ripe. Tempature is good fish a spawning.  
Says Bruce

Hiking trails are all over the Wallowa Mountains where you can absorb the beauty of these mountains. You'll have to go far from Lewiston to get to Rapid River Trail but hiking is such a fun thing to do and this is a great place to do that. While visiting this area in Idaho it's a good idea to go hiking too.
Hitting the trails is always
a fun thing to do and Rapid River Trail in Adams County, Idaho is just what you need. Take a side visit to Mickey Creek, and get your pulse rate up on the great whitewater of Snake River. So much exciting stuff to do in the Wallowa Mountains, not enough time.
