Numerous hiking, biking, horse and off-road vehicle trails are in the vicinity, including the Middle Fork Trail. Many miles of groomed snowmobile trails crisscross the area in winter. Snowshoers and cross-country skiers can also use the trails in winter. Click here for an Idaho OHV safety message.

The Middle Fork Payette River offers opportunities for rafting, canoeing, kayaking and swimming. Anglers can fish for rainbow and bull trout. Big game hunting is a popular activity in the surrounding mountains.
