The Gorgeous Enchanted Forest In Idaho That Everyone Should Visit

Ancient forests have a way of capturing the imagination, don’t they? Dark and hauntingly beautiful, they conjure images of mythical creatures and dangerous journeys, filling big screen movie sets with their expansive, fairy tale-like beauty. But California’s majestic redwoods aren’t the only trees worth paying a visit to. Idaho is home to some forest giants of our own! The Gem State is an overlooked haven for the towering Western Red Cedar–a tree which lives for generations and stands stories above the forest floor. Each of our state’s rich groves is abundant with natural beauty, but there’s one particular underrated grove of these majestic trees that has an inspiring, enchanting quality about it… and a far greater history than many people realize.

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. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Nature is simply awe-inspiring in its untamed form, and it’s wonderful to see gems like this preserved for so long. If you’ve ever paid a visit here, or to any of Idaho’s other cedar groves, be sure to share your photos with us via Instagram or on our Facebook page!
