Old Man of the Owyhees Hike

  • Saturday, November 11, 2023
  • 1:00 PM
  • Jump Creek Recreation Area

Registration is closed
Join us this Saturday for a trip to see, "The Old Man of the Owyhees." This eerie stone face is reminiscent of the Moai statues of Easter Island. The hike is 3.6 miles long and involves some challenges, including off-trail hiking and hop-across creek crossings.

We will meet at the Jump Creek upper trailhead at 1:00pm.

From Boise, take Interstate 84 West to the Nampa exit for Highway 55 (Exit 33A).Follow Highway 55 through Marsing and on to the junction with US-95. Continue 1 mile past the junction and turn left onto Cemetery Road. Cemetery Road will dead end at a T-intersection, turn left at the T onto Jump Creek Road. Follow Jump Creek Road through the Poison Creek Intersection for roughly 1/2 mile. When the road turns to gravel take a right and cross the cattle guard. This is now a public route through private property, follow signage and stay on the main road to the Jump Creek recreation area. The drive will take about an hour from Boise.

See you there!
