Riggins, Idaho: Allison Creek Trail

id

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 0.6 miles


Short trail that follows a small mountain stream for less than half a mile with slight elevation gain.
  • Small Waterfall
  • Wild Flower

The trail starts from Allison Creek Road which can be reached by taking the Salmon River Road east from Riggins, Idaho for approxmately 12 miles before turning left (north) onto Allison Creek Road. You'll follow the road as it meanders through a cattle and sheept farm located along Allison Creek for a little less than 6 miles before the road takes a hard right turn and starts to climb fromt he valley floor. It's at this turn you will want to park. The trail isn't marked so you may need to do some bushwhacking to find it. It starts on the east side of the creek and heads directly north.

When we hiked the trail we say plenty of signs of of deer in the area but didn't see any. The trail follows the creek and is never more than a few hundred feet from the creek. The forest bed was covered in wild flowers during our short hike along with many downed trees. Fortunately the trail is pretty well maintained and most of the trees were cleared.

The creek itself was running pretty high and cold in late May. Which wasn't very shocking. There little creek is well worth the short hike just to get outdoors. But, the trail comes to an aprubt end and you're left wondering if there is more to this trail than meets the eye.
