Local Hiking Trails
To reach the trailhead take Highway 55 west of town and turn on the Brundage Mountain Road. Take the Goose Lake/Hazard Lake turnoff at the Brundage “Y”. Stay on the graveled road going past GooseLake about a mile. You will see a road to the left. Turn onto that road and drive a short distance to a meadow. You can see a Cattle Association cabin in the meadow. Motorists and hikers are asked to not disturb stock that may be grazing in the area or disturb the cabin residence. The trailhead sign is by a stream. This trail is open to use by two wheeled vehicles. After walking up the trail a short distance you will have to cross the stream. The trail is a 1 mile walk up to the TwinLakes. The trail climbs steadily but not steeply for an elevation gain of about 400′. The lake is subject to drawdown at the dam so you will want to go early in the summer. The fishing is good and it is a nice place to take a picnic lunch and let the kids scramble around the shores. It is a two mile round trip. Twin Lakes Trail starts at the elevation of 6721′ and the TwinLakes are 7164′. On the way to TwinLakes there is a junction where the trail continues west to GraniteMountain and Granite Lookout. The trail from the parking area to GraniteMountain is three miles long. It is a steep, rugged, rocky hike with spectacular panoramic views west into the Little Salmon River Basin and east into the CentralIdahoMountains. The ending elevation is 8478′ giving you an elevation gain of 1758′. (Trail Difficulty – Easy)
Goose Creek Falls
(Powerline Trail) Travel west on Highway 55 until you come to the BrundageMountain turnoff. The Goose Creek Falls Trail sign is three miles up this road. There is usually adequate parking at the trailhead. The trail goes about 100 yards and then crosses an open area recently logged. Goose Creek canyon and the trail is over a ridge to the west. The trail goes steadily downhill until it reaches Goose CreekBridge. This bridge takes you across Goose Creek to the junction with Goose Creek Trail #353. From there you turn south (left) and follow the creek downstream for about 300 yards. There has been some limited work done to improve the trail to the falls but the noise of the water from the falls is a good guide to their location. Unlike most trails which gain elevation, Goose Creek Falls Trail starts at 5760′ and drops to 5080′. (Trail Difficulty – Easy)
Grass Mountain Lakes
This trail begins at the Grass Mountain Lakes Trailhead located on Goose Lake Road approximately seven miles past Goose Lake (20 miles from the junction with Highway 55). It is a nice, easy two mile hike to the GrassMountain (Twin) Lakes. The trail goes through the Corral Fire of 1994. Over the saddle to the east, Serene Lake, CoffeeCupLake, FrogLake, DisappointmentLake, and MorganLake are all nestled-in-the-backcountry lakes that can be accessed from the Grass Mountain Lakes Trail. These lakes offer quality brook trout fishing. The hike to the other lakes is long and a little more difficult but worth the extra effort. (Trail Difficulty – Easy)
Upper Hazard Lake
There are three HazardLakes: Hazard, Upper Hazard and Big Hazard. The Forest Service campground is at HazardLake and the trailhead for UpperHazardLake is there. The trail to UpperHazardLake is 2 miles long and gains about 348′ in elevation, starting at 7080′ and ending at 7428′. This is a nice hike that passes through several meadows before reaching the lake. This trail is not open to two wheeled motorized use due to erosion problems in the meadow. Much of the area was old spruce forest that burned in 1994’s Corral Fire. (Trail Difficulty – Easy)

"Super clean and quiet for the right price. We had our RV right on the river with full hook ups, where we could relax, read a book, catch some fish, have a fire, play games, or take a nap in the hammock, We could not have asked for anything more enjoyable.
