Tucked away in the Boise National Forest you will find Sage Creek Reservoir. This 232-acre reservoir in Idaho is surrounded by tall trees and beautiful forests and it is a popular location for fishing and boating. Five campgrounds are located nearby, which are each perfect when you want to escape into nature. While you can always spend your time at the lake, we recommend going on a short and easy hike. But, this isn’t just any hike — the Sage Hen Nature Trail in Idaho takes you to quite the magical sight.
