There’s A Charming Mountain Town Hiding In Idaho and It’s Beyond Perfect

While overlooked by out-of-staters due to its small population, rugged western appearance, and dramatic isolation, Stanley is nevertheless a traveler’s paradise that rests idyllically between the Sawtooth Mountains and the Salmon River. But you’ll know the instant you arrive that this itty-bitty community (population: 63) has a cozy, mountain-based culture all its own. In fact, the only struggle you’ll have is deciding what to do first once you get there!

Featuring beautiful campgrounds, whitewater rafting, fishing, hiking, backcountry skiing, horseback riding, mountain biking, and all-around off-the-beaten-path exploring, Stanley is quite the playground, no matter your adventure style. And with exhilarating, panoramic beauty to boot – you’ll have a hard time leaving this special little mountain town.

What’s your favorite thing to do in Stanley? What a fabulous little town!
