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 OHV use. 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.

To reach the OHV trailhead for the Danskin Mountains OHV Area from Boise, head east on US84 for 7 miles to the Blacks Creek Road / Kuna exit (#64). Turn left heading north on Blacks Creek Road for 7 miles. Turn left following signs to the north on Blacks Creek Road (FS189). The road changes from pavement to gravel. Continue 10 miles to the Bender Creek Trailhead (dispersed primative camping is permitted along Wood Creek). The Willow Creek Trailhead is 4 miles further (no ATV access -- popular with equestrians).

Overall, Danskin Mountains OHV Area is the 3rd most popular OHV & 4wd jeep trail of all 12 OHV routes in Idaho.
