Description

From the parking lot head north up the dirt road and continue past the gate that closes the route to motor vehicles. This fire road will turn into singletrack, so don't let the beginning fool you. At 3/4 mile, there is a washed out bridge that requires a crossing that may be difficult in spring conditions. The trail will continue to be a shale surface for the first two miles, and then turn into dirt. As you ascend you'll enjoy great views of little Payette as well as Payette lake. At mile 3 there is a U-turn switchback where the surrounding terrain becomes heavily wooded and the trail can be prone to fallen logs over the course of its remainder. From here, your hike also becomes rockier with boulders on the trail.

At mile 6 stay right at the junction to Box Lake, and Blackwell Lake will be around the corner. There is another river crossing and your trail intersects with the Crestline ATV Trail #109.
