Dedicated in 1990 during Idaho's Centennial year the Idaho Centennial Trail (ICT) stretches 900 miles through Idaho's diverse landscape. Each year hikers from around the country set out to hike the challenging trail with only a few succeeding. Since its dedication only a handful of people have competed the trail in its entirety in one year. The southern section of the trail begins at the Idaho / Nevada border near Murphy Hot Springs and continues north through 11 national forests including 3 wilderness areas, The Sawtooth Wilderness, Frank Church Wilderness and the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness and ending at Upper Priest Falls in northern Idaho. The trail is no easy task, high temperatures, animal encounters, dangerous creek crossings, unmaintained trails, steep terrain, and complete isolation are just a few of the challenges that make this trail difficult. With these challenges also comes the reward of seeing some of the most untouched wilderness left in the United States. 


When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
