The Harriman Trail
The Harriman trail provides a key transportation connection through the scenic corridor–linking the Sawtooth NRA headquarters on its south end to US Forest Service campgrounds, Easley Hot Springs and finally, the Galena Lodge at its northern terminus. The trail has been designed to accommodate wheelchair access, and invites a larger spectrum of recreationists to the upper Big Wood River Valley who might not venture into this landscape in the absence of a strong directional trail system. Along its eighteen mile course the Harriman trail rolls next to the Big Wood River, alternating through spacious meadows, aspen stands and lodgepole forest, always with the majestic Boulder Mountain range as a scenic backdrop.
