If you're in the state of Idaho, no doubt you're here for some outdoor time and wildlife exploration. A trail that offers that and some great views is the White Pine Trail, also referred to as the White Pine National Recreational Trail. The trail is only a few feet wide and mostly made from packed dirt and clay, with sharp inclines and small rocks to climb up on to continue.
To get to the trail, enter the Giant White Pine Campground and Trailhead, a wonderful dog-friendly campsite that has amenities and other trails leading out to enjoy the forest. The trailhead has restrooms and water fountains to use, but you will have to bring your own clean-up bags for Fido. The campground offers 14 campsites. The trail itself is surrounded by smaller white pines and continues through a forest full of them and other trees.
Starting off on the trail, you'll pass over a small bridge that crosses a stream and continues on a steady dirt path for two miles before it reaches some sharp inclines. On the way up the mountain, you'll get some pretty views of the surrounding forests and peaks, but nothing compared to when you reach the top at the end of the trail, where there are breathtaking views of the mountain ranges around the trail, with rolling fills and thick woods for miles.
The gorgeous scenery is sure to be leaving you and Fido inspired to continue along the path, although it is moderate and can offer great exercise. After experiencing such a pretty view, who wouldn't want to come back? If you're looking to hike in the area again soon, the campsite is also dog-friendly to leashed pups.
