East of Boise and north of Mayfield in the Boise National Forest, the 60,000 acre Danskin Mountains OHV Area has more than 150 miles of routes open to off-road motorcycle trails riding. The trail system consists of 6 major trails spread over a mountainous high-desert setting. The trails range from easy to most-difficult. Each trail is clearly signed for the type of motorized usage allowed. The trail system is open to non-motorized users, so keep an eye out for hiker, mountain bikers and equestrians. Due to heat, there are few riders during July and August.
