Day Trip Trips


Butterfly Count

Help monitor butterfly population trends in areas near Boise, including Military Reserve and Bogus Basin. Participants should be prepared for a day of hiking: daypack, sunscreen, lunch, snacks, water, sunhat, and sturdy footwear. A butterfly net is helpful but not required, as is a clipboard and tethered pen.

A registration fee of $4 per person will be collected; the fee helps the North American Butterfly Association compile the results of this nationwide survey.

Annual Succor Creek Clean Up

A Friends of the Owyhees Stewardship Project. Do your bit to help preserve and restore our precious desert canyons.

Succor Creek State Natural Area in eastern Oregon is a great park that all Owyhee recreational enjoy: from us locals, folks from Boise metro area, Oregonians from the west side, and others from afar. But with high-use comes garbage and invasive weeds.

Off-Trail Ski Tour

Escape the inauguration hoopla with an off-trail ski tour. Wider track skis or backcountry telemark skis are appropriate for this trip, as will be gaiters and your usual winter day pack with water in insulated containers, snacks and extra layers. We'll head out into the Boise Mountains for a 5 to 6 hour tour, exact location TBD depending on where we think the best snow conditions will be.

Butterfly Count Re-Scheduled

The wet weather on July 10th postponed the butterfly count; lets hope for sunnier skies this time.

Help monitor butterfly population trends in areas outside of Boise, including Military Reserve and Bogus Basin. Participants should be prepared for a day of hiking: daypack, sunscreen, lunch, snacks, water, sunhat, and sturdy footwear.

A registration fee of $4 per person will be collected; the fee helps the North American Butterfly Association compile the results of this nationwide survey.

Volunteers meet in the morning at the 17th and State Street parking lot (there is a liquor store) for free cinnamon rolls and orange juice, and to organize carpools.

Lucky Peak

For some people, a hike up Lucky Peak is a long-term, perhaps a life-time, goal. For others, it’s a springtime tune-up hike. The advantage of a Lucky Peak hike is you can often turn back safely, even solo. It’s a road with no traffic on it (most of the year). I am not advocating solo hiking but if you have inadvertently gotten in over your head, and the rest of the hikers really want to continue, the ability to safely hike back takes some of the pressure off others to return with you.
