Thorne Butte - Cottonwood Creek Loop
Humongous and impressive views of the surrounding countryside on the climb to Thorn Butte make this a beautiful outing. The singletrack descent down Cottonwood Creek is fun and challenging (I biffed 3 times!). Located 37 miles northeast of Boise. Tread: 12.9 miles of 4WD dirt road, 8.4 miles of singletrack.
