“Spanish Town is just one of those places in Idaho you must visit.”— James Lewis
The trail is very well maintained. This is a very easy trail, with great footing. I would recommend this hike to anyone.
The Spanish Town Site is located 1.5 miles from the parking area. There are currently no structures standing at this location. Just old rock foundations that used to support the structures that were there. This is a great area to visit for those appreciate Idaho history.
This trail has great footing from the parking area to Spanish Town. Please be careful around the creeks as you'll have to cross them a couple of times to get there.
What makes this so interesting is, according to the Encyclopedia of Chicago, Fraser and Chalmers (the manufacturer of the camshaft) merged with Edward P. Allis & Co. of Milwaukee in 1901 to form Allis-Chalmers Co. So this camshaft has to be over 100 years old. To see the images of the camshaft both in the 1950s and in 2016 please visit Idaho Outdoors.
