“Start at East Mountain Lookout and hike down into the Middle Fork Payette River Trail.”
— Joseph States
The Fool Creek Trail is a great midpoint access to enter or exit the Middle Fork Payette River
Trail just upstream from Bull Creek and the 16 To 1 Trail Junction. The trail just near the Middle Fork Payette River
Trail is quite steep in places, and there are many sections of this route that are rocky and rugged.
