McCall — Secesh River Hike

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and National Public Lands Day, we are teaming up with the Payette National Forest to host a hike up the Secesh River.

Please bring your lunch, water, appropriate clothing and shoes for a 4-mile moderate hike. Layer up! Weather conditions tend to be a bit cooler this time of year.

Directions: From Ponderosa State Park’s Ponderosa Campground, travel 31 miles to reach the southern end of the Secesh River Trail. The drive to trailhead will go over Lick Creek Summit and through Lick Creek Canyon. With its rock falls, hanging valleys and waterfalls, this canyon is one of the most picturesque drives on the Payetter National Forest.

To register or for more information, please send an email to Steve Kimball, natural resource staff officer on the Payette National Forest.
