Few People Know There’s A Mystical Lake And Beach Hidden In An Idaho Forest

Here in Idaho, we are no stranger to lakes. With hundreds of lakes scattered all around the state, there is always a body of water to visit and enjoy. However, in the Payette National Forest is one hidden lake and beach that not many people know about nor have sat along its shores. This lake is tucked away, and the route is challenging, but the payoff is magical, mystical, and unforgettable.

This is one hiking trail in Idaho where hiking shoes and hiking poles are strongly recommended. You should also plan to tackle this trail in the summer and early fall months. During the spring, the trail can become extremely muddy. You can check out the current maintenance and trail status of the Box Lake Trail on the National Forest Service website.
