The Idaho section of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) rolls 270 miles along the border with Montana from near Yellowstone in the south. It runs north passing through Targhee National Forest and Salmon National Forest. This is big mammal country, so you can expect to encounter black bear, brown bear, mountain lions, elk and moose.

Overall, Continental Divide National Scenic Trail is the 6th most popular hiking trail of all 19 hikes in Idaho.
