Things To Do in Salmon Idaho


Mountain Biking

  From March through November established mountain bike trails are found throughout the area…with expeditions into the higher elevations taking place throughout the summer months. Visit



  The main Salmon River is just a stones throw from our Lodge and is open for fishing virtually year round. The fish awaiting your first cast include Cutthroat, Rainbow, Brook, Bull and Steelhead Trout. Just think you’ll be presenting your fly to fish in the same water that Lewis and Clark fished over 200 years ago.


Horseback Riding

  Half day, full day, and two to three day outings are available on gentle horses that will make any ride an enjoyable escape and create memories to last a lifetime.

Rawhide outfitters have been providing superb rides for many years and can be reached at 208-756-4276.



  One of the things in greatest abundance in our neck of the woods is room to roam. There are mountains and trails everywhere and Forest Service roads provide access to trailheads for motorized vehicles such as snowmobiles, ATVs and 4WD. When it’s time to take the family for a motorized trail ride you won’t have to look far. 

Hiking & Trail Running


 You can walk or run to find your outdoor nirvana, but either way one thing is for certain…your footwear will wear out before your options do. The public owns over ninety-percent of the land in Lemhi County and groomed trails abound near and far. From Eight-Mile Lake Trail .8 miles, to Hayden Creek Trail 10.2 miles and from easy to difficult you’ll find just the right fit.  

Sport Shooting


  Getting a target in your sites might be the perfect way to wind down after a day filled with outdoor activities. Our eight bench shooting range is always on hand and provides a tranquil and safe environment for the gun enthusiast. We also feature skeet shooting and of course pistols are always welcome.


Rafting & Kayaking

 Between the Main Salmon and the Middle Fork of the Salmon River anyone can find the perfect stretch of water to match their desires, skill set, and preferred watercraft. From a leisurely float with the family to class four rapids, it’s all right here in the Salmon Valley.   Both Rawhide Outfitters and River Time Guide Service have been providing river-running memories for years.

Snow Sports

  When the white stuff starts falling the hardy ones among us take to the hills with their cross-country skis, snowshoes, sleds, and snowmobiles. Of course, our area hot springs feel great anytime of year, but there is something magical about sitting in a pool of hot water in the dead of winter.



 Lemhi County has one of the largest elk herds in the West, including the largest wilderness area in the Lower 48. This expansive terrain means there’s room for all kinds of game including Whitetail and Mule Deer, Black Bear, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goat, Antelope, Cougar and Moose.   Bird hunters also flock here seeking upland birds including Blue, Ruffed and Franklin’s Grouse, Chukkar and Hungarian Partridge, and Mourning Dove.
