Idaho’s Tunnel Of Trees Is Positively Magical And You Need To Visit

Idaho is full of back-country roads and tree-lined trails, but winding through one of our state’s most overlooked state parks is a unique tunnel of trees that is not only a cool and inviting adventure for all ages, but a stunningly peaceful journey through one of Idaho’s hidden treasures. Winding through miles of towering trees and leading to an unexpected prairie overlook, Skyline Drive near the Washington border is a whimsical trail that will allow you to get lost in nature in the best way possible.
