Idaho Sand DunesMiles of trails and old logging roads entice the ATV enthusiast to ride in Idaho. Both the U. S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management provide maps for ATV-approved trails in their areas.  ATV riding is a great way to enjoy the breathtaking landscape and scenery of Idaho and you don't even have to venture far from your Boise home!

Dune Excursions (ATV Rentals) - Dune Excursions is your place for ATV rentals at the St. Anthony Sand Dunes for 6 years running with new models to choose from each year. Go ride on the dunes, or simply roll down the hills and play in the sand. While some go riding there's still plenty for everybody to do at the dunes.

Fairfield Area ATV Trails - The Wilson Flat ATV trail system includes approximately 11 miles of loop trails specifically designed for ATV use. These trails offer great views of Anderson Ranch Reservoir, the South Fork of the Boise River, and the surrounding area.  It will be an ATV experience like you’ve never had before.

Land of the Yankee Fork State Park - The Land of the Yankee Fork State Park brings to life Idaho’s frontier mining history. This State Park is part of the larger Land of the Yankee Fork Historic Area located in scenic central Idaho. At the Yankee Fork Visitor Center near Challis there are museum exhibits, a gold panning station, audiovisual programs, and friendly personnel to provide information on local mining history and area attractions. You’ll also be interested to drive through and check out the ghost towns of Bonanza, Custer and Bayhorse, the Yankee Fork Gold Dredge, the Custer Motorway and the Challis Bison Jump. Land of the Yankee Fork provides outstanding trail opportunities from hiking and biking trails, to motorized ATV and Motorbike trails. Camping in the National Forest and BLM lands is varied as well with both primitive and developed campsites available - there is something for everyone at the Land of the Yankee Fork State Park.

Kepros Mountain, IdahoPayette National Forest - The Payette National Forest covers much of west-central Idaho, and is virtually surrounded by other national forests.  It is bordered on the north by the Salmon River, on the west by the Snake River, on the east by the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and on the south by the Boise National Forest. The Payette includes a large portion of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Pristine high mountain lakes lie along the ridge between the South Fork Salmon River and the North Fork Payette River drainages. Elevations on the forest range from 1,500 feet in Hells Canyon to over 9,500 feet in parts of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The forest offers many outdoor recreation opportunities, including ATV trails.  It will be a scenic, exhilarating ATV ride that you’ll never forget.

Idaho is filled with opportunities-opportunities to ride, run, and play in so many different ways. ATVs is just one of the many. If you love ATVs, or really any other outdoor sport, check out Idaho Real Estate. There are so many great communities to choose from: Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Eagle, Caldwell, Kuna, and more!
