Sawtooth National Recreation Area
Central Idaho travelers have plenty of options for recreational fun. Make time to explore Sawtooth National Recreation Area, encompassing 756,000 acres of land, north and west of Ketchum.
This beautiful recreation area was established in 1972 by the U.S. Congress in order to protect the land in this area of Idaho.
The White Cloud Mountain and a portion of the Boulder Mountains are on either side of this protected area. Although no motorized vehicles are allowed, there are plenty of year-round recreational opportunities, for exploring this vast recreation area.
Bring your mountain bike and hit the trails in this premier recreation area. Try any of the 350 miles of trails through the Sawtooth Wilderness area.
Horseback riders, rock climbers, hunters and snowshoers are also permitted in the Wilderness area. Kayaking, white water rafting and fishing are popular activities on the Salmon River, Boise River, Big Wood River and Payette River, as well as on one of the hundreds of lakes located in the recreation area.
