Travel wisely - check Idaho road
conditions, road closures, weather, web cameras and road reports all
from right here. It is always a good idea to check road reports prior to traveling on Idaho roads - especially during
winter. This is Idaho
after all, inclement weather and poor driving conditions can develop
out of nowhere. The most common backcountry road conditions during
inclement weather in Idaho are typically low visibility, icy roads
and/or rockfall (rocks on the road). Avalanches are not very common,
but have been known to occur in the Banner Summit area along state
highway 21 late winter/early spring.
No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo
Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!
Public hot springs are not bathing facilities
and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown
naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans)
at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
