Station Creek Trail #152

Station Creek Trail - This trail is a very accessible day hike only a few minutes off of the Banks-Lowman Road (State Highway 17).

It provides the user with views of the South Fork of the Payette River and the hills south of the river.

The trail is in big game winter range habitat, so late in the fall through early spring there is a very good chance of seeing deer and elk.

If you bring a dog be careful, and keep them close by.

This trail is open to non-motorized travel only.
