The trails of the Boise National Forest within the Cascade Ranger District wrap and weave from the valley to the mountain peaks and offer delightful scenery and sounds of nature, as well as a few trails that pass by creeks, meadows, and alpine lakes.

Buyers on the hunt for a new home are finding fewer choices as the supply of existing homes for sale has hit the lowest level since 1999. This low inventory compared to the demand for homes has begun to drive prices up.
