Mary Minerva McCroskey Country Trail Professional Review and Guide

"One of Idaho’s least known state parks, 5000-acre-plus McCroskey is also one of the Gem State’s largest parks. A gift to the state in 1955 from Virgil Talmage McCroskey, as a tribute to his mother and all pioneer women of the Northwest, McCroskey State Park has changed little in fifty years.

The park occupies a long ridge that ranges in elevation from 3000 to 4200 feet. It marks the transition zone between the grasslands of the Palouse and the rich forests of the Panhandle Mountain ranges. Open ponderosa forests flank the park’s western reaches, while damp stands of cedar and grand fir blanket the park’s eastern lands. Seven different ecological zones can be found in McCroskey, supporting a diverse array of wildlife including moose, coyote, elk, and black bear."
