Magnificent Hikes in Southeast Idaho

If you love the great outdoors, Southeast Idaho is a great place to be. Southeast Idaho offers great scenic getaways and hikes. Within an hour of the cities of Rigby, Rexburg, and Idaho Falls are many great getaways. This article discusses some of the magnificent hiking adventures in Southeast Idaho.

An hour away from Rigby, Idaho is the Grand Teton mountain range near Driggs, Idaho. The mountain range offers many amazing hikes. Two of the most popular hikes are Table Rock and Darby Wind Cave. Table Rock is a day's hike. It takes about 5 hours to reach top of the mountain and only about 3 hours to descend the mountain. On top of Table Rock, hikers have an unbelievable view of the Grand Teton and the valley below. Bring water, food, and warm cloths to hike the mountain. Although it may be warm at the base of the mountain, the top may be cold and windy.

The best time to hike Table Rock is mid July to the end of September. There still may be snow on the mountain in June. The hike is moderately difficult with steep inclines. No mountain climbing gear is needed to clime Table Rock. The trail is well defined, and you will run into several other hikers on the way up and on the way down. It is best to start the hike early morning to reach the top before the afternoon. The wind tends to be stronger in the afternoon.

Darby Wind Cave hike, also known as Memorial Hike, is located near Victor, Idaho. The trail is only 2.5 miles to the cave from the parking lot. The hike is not difficult and suitable for all ages. The climax of the hike is reaching the large Darby Wind Caves. You may hike further into the cave, but if you do remember to bring warm cloths and flashlights. Do not hike far into the cave unless your group has an experience cave hiker. The mouth is the cave is large and beautiful with a river running out of the cave and down the mountain.
