Island Park is an outdoor lovers paradise. This area of the Gem State is home to incredible lakes, gorgeous forests, and wildlife of all sizes. It is also home to some unique and bucket-list-worthy hiking trails, including one of my personal favorites — the Big Springs Interpretive Trail. Short and easy, this trail is perfect for a day outside. Plus, it’ll take you past a historic cabin and even to an abandoned rail line — it’s a hiking trail in Idaho with countless gems.
