Does anyone have any Memorial Day plans? I'm planning a trail run on Memorial Day at the Bennett Hills trail just North of Gooding if anyone is interested. Meeting at the trail head at 830 am.

We also have an open invite for our Boulder Basin trip that is planned for aug 2-4. It is one of the best trails in idaho. The trail head is about 10 miles north of sun valley and climbs up boulder creek road to about 9500 feet to Boulder City, a mining ghost town. We camp up there and do some hiking and swiming in the lakes.

YJMaddness, I know this post is a little late and I am not in Idaho currently but just took a trip there and had seen your post about Boulder City so I tried to get up there. How long ago did you make that trek? I tried on Aug 16 and was only able to make 4.4miles in to the Gate that was pryed open. From the maps I think I stopped just under a mile short from the end. The road was pretty rough most of the way up. Much rougher than I viewed in many videos. Seemed that maybe the creek diverted onto the trail many times and washed out the soil. I felt that I was wheeling a creek bed all the way up (Boulders and all). In short I made it up past the Talus feilds but had to stop at the gate. Maybe I was just to nervous about experiencing a mechanical break down so far from Texas but either way I stopped while the gettin was good. I wouuld have loved to go the distance but not having any other jeeps or vehicals with me I did not want to have a break down. Next time I come up (yearly) I will see if any Idaho jeepers would be willing to give it a try with me. Thanks for the post it was a fun trip nevertheless.

I have only been there once and I dont remember seeing a gate. when were you up there? i just had a buddy do it 2 weekends ago, and went to the top he said that the smoke was so bad they just turned around. and it has gotten worse since he was there. the last few weeks the fires have been very close and the area has been pretty much shut down. its still raging, and rumor has it that they wont have it all out untill snow flies(according to a wildland firefighter to my wife today. he may have had other motives though)

for sure hit us up when you come back. there is a lot of wheeling around here. i just found some more great trails a couple weeks ago.

YJMaddnes, I was up on that trail Aug 16th. Yea it was very smokey and had ash falling on the Jeep. I camped at Sunny Gultch near Redfish Lake then headed over in the AM on the 16th. When you head up the trail head from ID75 about 1/2 mile in you meet up at a sign that says it is 5.1 miles to Boulder city. From that point I wheeled up to 4.3 miles and stopped. See BLD2 pic. At that point there was a gate ( on the left) that was bent out of the way and sort of hidden behind some brush. The sign on it said closed do to water on the trail. In that pic you will see some shrubs just beyond that the tail climbs again and it as a total boulder field. I probably could have made it but I chickened out. I did not want to have any mechanical failures up there without any back up plus getting back to Texas would be a little difficult. In addition I had my 11yr old son with me. Next time I will bring some extra tie rod ends, ball joints and a universal. Hind sight I was not very smart going up there ill prepaired. I had whatched several videos from other memebers and the trail seemed to pretty un obstructed. Maybe it was my inexperience. Either way next time I come up I will try and contact some of the ID people for guidance. BTW although I have lived in texas since 1983 I was raised in Mnt Home and have been going back to ID every year since. I have a brother that lives in 1A "BOISE". I was going to go to Atlanta as well but the pesky fires were everywhere. A real shame. Thanks for your input/response. See pics
