Snowshoe with a Ranger on Thursdays Through March
Wednesday, January 17, 2024


Learn about the history of the old Galena mining camp and about the local animals who leave their tracks in the snow during a free Snowshoe with a Ranger tour.

The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is offering free snowshoe tours at 11 a.m. Thursdays through March 21 leaving from the porch of Galena lodge.

The snowshoe trip lasts about two hours, covering 1.5 miles with stops along the way. Tour-goers will learn about the winter ecology and more during the tour

“We typically do the Cowboy Cabin loop, which is about 1.25 miles and we finish between 1 and 1:30 p.m., talking about Galena mining history, Forest Service history and the like,” said Susan Kranz, supervisory interpretive specialist and volunteer coordinator for the SNRA.

A free one-day Blaine County Recreation district snowshoe pass will be provided. Snowshoes can be rented at Galena Lodge.

Snowshoers are advised to dress warmly in layers, wear insulated waterproof boots, gloves, hats,  sunglasses and sunscreen. Dogs and other pets are not allowed on these particular tours.

No reservations are necessary. To learn more, call the SNRA at 208-727-5000. To rent snowshoes, visit or visit the ski shop at Galena Lodge ahead of the tour.
