Telephone Ridge Trail #112

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Telephone Ridge, Boise National Forest, Cascade Ranger District, Warm Lake, Stolle Meadows, South Fork Salmon River, Cougar Rock, Cline Mountain, Rice Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Thick forest scenery and plenty of single rack and surrounding OHV trails are the main attraction of the Telephone Ridge area. Staging can be done at both the Shoreline and Warm Lake campground and OHVs are permitted to enter and exit the campgrounds to access the designated trails.

The best time to visit this area is during the later summer as the trails may still be snow covered until late spring or early summer. Swimming and boating opportunities can be found at Warm Lake.
