The Murdock Creek Trail is a 6.3 mile hike located in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA). In fact, hikers drive right by the SNRA office at the turn off to the trail on Forest Road 146.
SNRA Office and Murdock Creek Trailhead
The office was closed due to COVID when I visited, but there are still many trail maps and other useful information about the area in the foyer. If it is open, you can see a variety of animals on display such as a wolf, fox, and badger.
Forest Road 146 is dirt, but easily passable by passenger car. The Murdock Creek Trailhead is a little over a mile down the road and on a spur to the right.HAPPY HIKING
