Northeast of Boise and Idaho City in the Boise National Forest, the Hungarian Ridge Trail #166 follows the Hungarian Ridge and Sunset Ridge for 11 miles with several vista points. The route is shared by hikers, horseback and offroad motorcycle riders. The scenic route passes through old burn areas and regrowth of Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine.

To reach the Sunset Lookout Trailhead from the intersection of Main St. and SR 21 in Idaho City, go east/north on SR 21 for 13.5 miles. Turn right onto FR 316 (Mores Creek Summit) and go about 4 miles to Sunset Mountain. The trailhead starts just below the lookout, as indicated with a trail sign.

Note: trail maintenance has been limited on this route over the past few years so expect many downed trees. There are several loose, steep climbs which may be difficult.

Overall, Hungarian Ridge Trail is the 25th most popular horse trail of all 56 horseback rides in Idaho. Several of the better horse trails are nearby Hungarian Ridge Trail including West Mountain / Joes Creek, Airline Trail / Onion Valley Trail, Swanholm - Warrior Trail, Trail Creek Trail, Hot Creek Bridle Trail and Black Warrior Bridle Trail.
