Payette National Forest
Planning a summer horseback riding trip to Idaho? Be sure to ride in Valley and Idaho Counties. Every trail leads to a Creek, River or lake, water is always available. The trails vary dramatically, study the trail maps and choose carefully. Consider the ability of you and your horse. Some trails allow atv's so if your horse is spooky avoid those. The views are breathtaking and the fishing is always great. Camping with your horse is generally not a problem. Bring mosquito repellent, fishing gear and a camera to capture all the wildlife along the trail. Lightening storms are not uncommon in the area, be sure to include rain gear in your saddlebags. Both counties are old gold mining areas so you will see old grave sites. log cabins and some remaining artifacts. Indians hunted and fished both areas extensevely. Arrorwheads are commonly found at various Indian camp sites but please, leave them where you find them so the next rider can share the excitement of seeing them. Panning for gold may still be an option. Motel accomedations and horse stables are readly avaible if you don't want to rough it.

Bruneau Dunes State Park
I ride this area extensivly during the winter. Much to hot to ride after the middle of May (in a hot year) through to middle of Sept. Tempertures are always 10 degrees hotter on a sunny day. While this make for a hot summer ride it is wonderful on a winter day. They now offer a equestrian parking area with a bathroom and a covered picinic area, picinic tables and horse ties. There are also two horse pens but made of wood not metal.
You can also park there overnight and is a great moonlight ride area. With a full moon you throw a pretty good shadow. I'd call and see what the weather was but I ride it most weekends in the winter months, no shoes required, good workout for horses (lots of sand) and three pretty good rides { distances of 7, 12 and 14 apx}.
Regular State Park fees apply.
