Multiple Use Trail: Discovery Hill Community Trails (Idaho)

Multiple-Use Management and Corridor Sharing

The Discovery Hill Community Trails Project is a community-driven trail-development project located approximately 2 miles north of Salmon, Idaho. Discovery Hill had a long history of user-created conflicts and vandalism which were impacting important keystone wildlife species such as sage grouse.

Approximately 35 miles of non-motorized trails were developed, a 1.4 mile podcast trail was built, the designated travel route system was clearly signed and mapped, and a frisbee golf course was built. The trail system is immensely popular with mountain bikers, trail runners, hikers, and horseback riders. Additionally, motorized trail users now safely and accurately navigate the motorized road and trail system and Sacajawea Motorsports park.
