Rockcrawling in ID

I might be spending a few months in Boise or CDA for work. Is there any good rock crawling in Idaho? I lived about 2.5 hours from hammers for a number of years and now Iím 2 hours from the rubicon and fordyce. Anything comparable?

Ask Fred, he was talking about road tripping to Montana today for the weekend.

Awesome, I have done some research and saw more wheeling in Boise then CDA.

The Owyhee range seems to have some good stuff, is that all public land?

Frank, Iíll have to message Fred!

I cannot speak to which is better since I have never wheeled the CDA area.

Most of it is public land and there is a lot of good trails out there, there are plenty of other areas that have great trails as well. I would recommend hitting up one of the local clubs as they do a fair amount of club runs. High Desert Off-Road or Idaho Off-Road are the two I would recommend.

There are creeks outside of CDA to go wheeling in. While they are fun they are no where near as hard as Fordyce or the others. If there is snow they will be more difficult.

You will need to hook up with someone in order to get to one of them. We don't like to tell where it is. People posting pictures with the name on facebook have been issued tickets from what I have been told. We have never had an issue but better to be safe than sorry.

In the I90 corridor, east of CDA, there are OHV trails in the Mullan and Pinehurst areas.

I've lived in both areas and moved back to Boise for the rocks. CDA is mountain wheeling, lots of trees, mud, etc. Some rocky stuff, think Colorado only not as much. Boise is rocks, think California only not as big And yes, the Owyhees are where it's at. There are some other trails as well but I generally stayed in the Owhees.

As previously mentioned, get a hold of High Desert or Idaho Off-Road for more information.
