Boise National Forest

Antelope Trail

The trail passes through conifer forests, high meadows and open areas. There are panoramic views of West Mountain and the Squaw Creek drainage. Flora and fauna are abundant in the area. Wildflowers can be seen throughout most of the year. Elk, deer and bear are common. The trail is not maintained on a regular schedule. The trail may be hard to locate due to livestock use. The trail starts next to National Forest Road 653 (NF-653). The trail follows a small creek upslope for about .5 to .75 of a mile. From the creek the trail follows the ridge top east, then turns south and drops down into Antelope Creek. It then follows the ridge south until the trail intersects with Renwyck Trail. The intersection at Renwyck Trail is unmarked. The trails are well used and easy to see.
