Description

The trail begins at the end of 580 S near Jerome, Idaho. The access road looks kind of like a private driveway, but there is a sign that says "River Access" with an arrow that you'll want to follow. There are several homes in the vicinity, and you'll be sure to want to give them their privacy. The trail is an old dirt road that descends to the river. On the way down, there are several spring-fed cascades and waterfalls. There is also a nice pond that is stocked with fish. The trail continues down to the river's edge. There are spur tracks that head to different places to access the river.

Flora & Fauna

All kinds of fish, rainbow trout, steelhead, sturgeon. There are also several birds of prey in the area that live among the cliffs.
