East of Boise and north of Faifield in the Boise National Forest, the Fairfield area has over 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails at elevations ranging from 5,000 to 9,000 feet. Fairfield is an undiscovered snowmobiling paradise. Located in south central Idaho, Fairfield is centrally located to three snowmobiling parking and trail access areas. It is quickly emerging as one of the State's greatest kept secrets. From the wide-open Camas Prairie to the adjacent foothills and Smokey Mountains within the Forest Service, each year visitor numbers increase as they discover the beautiful vistas and nearly 200 miles of groomed trail with new and expanded trails being added each season. Riders enjoy excellent backcountry beauty with seemingly endless off-trail opportunities to explore for beginner to expert riding levels.
To reach the Fairfield snowmobile trailhead from the intersection of US 20 and Soldier Rd. in Fairfield, go north on Soldier Rd. for 6.4 miles. (Follow Soldier Rd. as it veers right, then left at the town of Soldier.) Turn right on NFD 095 (Little Smoky Rd.) and park.
Overall, Fairfield is the 6th most popular snowmobile trail of all 19 snowmobiling rides in Idaho.
