Located at Salmon’s Scenic Discovery Hill Recreation Area, this 1.3 mile loop is well-suited to all skill levels!
Salmon High School Volleyball Team members assist Salmon Valley Stewardship and Salmon BLM Field Office with trail maintenance along Discovery Hill Podcast Trail.
The Discovery Hill podcast loop is approximately 2 miles northeast of Salmon, an extremely scenic and remote town of 3,000 situated between the Continental Divide Trail and the Salmon River Mountains. From Main Street (also Highway 93), turn on North St. Charles Street and travel 2.2 miles. The pavement ends after 1.3 miles, but the gravel road is easily passable in a sedan. A large BLM trailhead, parking lot, and restroom are on the right, but to get to the podcast trailhead, travel 0.4 more miles to a parking area on the left. The Salmon River overlook is to the east of the parking area, and the beginning of the podcast loop is to the west, just across the road.
There are 6 stops along the trail, where you can listen to descriptions of the unique natural, cultural, and social resources that make this area so unique, and which make Discovery Hill such a significant place in our community. Podcasts are narrated by Salmon’s own Jr. High and High School students.
Stay tuned for six new podcasts in this series, coming soon!
