The Idaho Centennial Trail is a nearly 1,000-mile-long trail spanning the length of Idaho, extending from the Idaho-Nevada border to the Canadian border, encompassing all the variety that the state has to offer. It was recognized as the state trail in 1990, when Idaho was celebrating its 100-year benchmark after becoming a state. The ICT travels through some of the most rugged and remote country in the Lower 48, including three designated wilderness areas, one proposed wilderness area, and several roadless areas. As long trails go, it’s regarded as one of the most difficult in the nation.
Come hear from four Idahoans—John Lloyd, Lisa and Jeremy Johnson, and Dan Noakes—who have hiked the trail in its entirety! This panel, facilitated by the Selway Bitterroot Frank Church Foundation, will give attendees an inside perspective on hiking the trail from both thru-hikers and a section-hiker. You’re sure to leave inspired for your next adventure!
In partnership with the Selway Bitterroot Frank Church Foundation. This program will be livestreamed and recorded for later viewing.
Lisa and Jeremy Johnson’s new book, The Hiker’s Guide: Idaho Centennial Trail, will be available for sale from Chapter One at the event.
