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.
Horseback trail rides: Experience transportation Galena style, back when it was the largest town in the Wood River Valley. View the Boulder mountains from a different perspective--atop a horse. Trail rides at the Galena Stage Stop Corrals, located across the highway from Galena Lodge, are offered daily from late June through Labor Day. Please phone the Galena Stage Stop Corrals at 208-726-1735 for more information.
