Trailhead to Idaho Adventure

Stanley, Idaho is one of the last strongholds of the Idaho frontier. Unaffected, pristine, and planted at the foot of the Sawtooth Mountains on the banks of the Salmon River, it’s nestled in an amphitheater of rarely found natural beauty. This is a place that will leave an indelible impression on you from the moment you enter.

Defined by the jagged peaks of the Sawtooth Range and the promise of the Salmon River, Stanley is a funky western town with eye-popping sunsets that awakes each morning to the freshest air on earth.
