The Idaho Outdoor Association is a chartering organization for a Scouting Unit. As more information becomes available we will provide an interest page and schedule a parents meeting. This Scouting unit will focus on outdoor recreation, conservation and outdoor ethics in alignment with the IOA mission.
IOA Campout Hike at Crooked River
Saturday, June 19, 2021
12:00 noon @ The Crooked River Trailhead
Our featured hike at this year's annual campout will be the Crooked River Trail. All IOA members are welcome to join us for this outing, even if they aren't planning to camp. Simply meet us at the trailhead at noon.
We plan to follow the relatively easy riverside trail for its first 3.7 miles and then back. For detailed information about this trail refer to the "Boise Backcountry Adventures" guidebook, outing #42.
To reach the trailhead, drive 18 miles northeast from Idaho City on Highway 21. Turn right on Crooked River Road (FSR 384) at Edna Creek Campground. Proceed on this road for just a little more than a mile to the signed trailhead.
Join us for a weekend campout at Idaho City, June 18-20, 2021.
Our campsite will be on isolated private land within walking distance of downtown and its amenities.
Activities will include a hike on the Crooked River Trail.
To reach our campsite, turn left on Main Street from Hwy 21, then right on Bear Run Road. Travel up Bear Run for a little more than a mile, where there is a gate across the road. Take a sharp left onto a primitive dirt road. Follow the IOA signs to camp.
