The 2,000-Mile, Statewide Birding Trail In Idaho Is Perfect For Wildlife Enthusiasts

Idaho is a giant playground for all types of outdoor recreation. Some of our state’s most popular activities include rafting, fishing, hiking, and skiing, but did you know the Gem State is also a birdwatching paradise? It’s true! Birding is one of those vastly underrated activities that every wildlife-loving Idahoan should try their hand at some time. After all, our state is home to the Idaho Birding Trail, a massive 2,000-mile trail that features over 170 great birding sites. It doesn’t matter where in Idaho you reside, we bet there are a few great birdwatching spots near you that are worth checking out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
