Hiking the Bruneau Sand Dunes in Idaho

In today’s video, we decide to go on a short hike in Bruneau Dunes State Park but then once out there we decide to go for the whole enchilada and hike the big dune. It was a difficult hike and it got very hot but it was absolutely gorgeous and we had a great sense of accomplishment! We will probably never do the hike again but we are very glad we did it this time. Amazing!

    Two techniques for sand hikng: (1) switchback your way up so you backslide less and (2) try snowshoes, they will help keep you on top of the sand. The MSR brand/style might work best, since they have a claw edge instead of a smooth one.

      I really want to try snow shoeing someday so if we do and we buy them, we’ll make sure they are multi-use! Thanks for the tips!

    Head about 20 miles on highway 75 through Ketchum, Better spots outside of Ketchum in the Sawtooth National Forest Area (SNRA) – stop at the Ranger Station to get info, they don’t take the rez need to call (RESERVATIONS or CANCELLATIONS: 1-877-444-6777 WEB SITE: recreation.gov) – – heading to Galina Summit. even if you pay a few bucks the views are better and quieter! Stay in the area for Solar Eclipse on the 21st –gonna be wild and busy in town.

    Go over the Galina Summit to Stanley and stop in Red Fish, Alturas Lake – see if there are camping spots at Red Fish or there is a campground for trailers off Hiway 75 Stanley. Great Lakes to hang all along there. Enjoy, wish I was there!

      Great tips! We needed to move on from the area because of appointments but we really want to stay in the Stanley/Ketchum area again in the future. It was beautiful there!
