Idaho City Area Trail Map

About us:

The Motorized Trails Program was created in 1970 to ensure quality motorized recreational opportunities remain available by providing for maintenance, education, and enforcement partnerships.

The Motorized Trails Program mission is to provide leadership statewide in the area of OHV recreation; to work with land managers to provide maintenance on designated trails, develop new opportunities, provide safety and education classes, and provide comment on all motorized travel planning within Idaho through the use of designated funding.


Idaho City is surrounded by excellent snowmobile trails, including Granite Creek, located just 3 miles from the hotel. Click below for more information on trail grooming.
