“A classic backcountry Idaho trail at the doorsteps of Ketchum.”— Chris Wandervans
This trail is not as smooth as the trail systems close to town and will certainly have some technical rock features along the way. There are a few landslides that cut across the path of the trail due to the 2007 fire. The most notable and largest is around the halfway point.
Rooks Creek is also a great way to access the Osberg Ridge Trail or to create some loops towards Adams Gulch.
There was a lot of mining activity on the slopes of Boyle Mountain and a few structures remain in the bottom of Rooks Creek about a mile up the trail.
