Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A combination of vast views of the lush river valley, basalt cliffs, and history make this trail a must-do. Learn about the Oregon Trail while hiking near intact ruts left by the original wagon trains. Both the Kelton Ramp and this section of the Oregon Trail in the reserve are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Travel beside the famous main route of the Oregon Trail on the reserve’s Oregon and Rim Trails. This site is part of the 2,170-mile-long Oregon National Historic Trail. View the original wagon train ruts on the protected area beside the hiking trails. Three overlooks on the edge of the basalt cliffs on the Rim Trail provide unobstructed views of the lush Boise River valley below, and informative trail signs describe the area’s history."
