We drove to the Kingston exit on Interstate 90, and followed the River Road up past Prichard, past the Shoshone Base Camp to a sign that told us to turn off to see Fern Falls and Shadow Falls. You drive about 4 miles to the parking lot, and it is your typical unpaved forest service logging type road with a special feature of a kind of washboard type of cement pylons across the road to help with water I guess. We arrived at the parking lot, and headed up the trail.
Here are some shots from this hike.
Then we headed toward Murray, and went to the Settler's Grove of Ancient Cedars. Some of these trees are over 1,000 years old. It is a very peaceful, calming place to hike.
Both hikes are very easy and would make a good day trip for anyone in the area. Both places would make wonderful opportunities for beautiful photographs. Both trails get pretty steady use, but not crowded at all, are are very clean and free from garbage, (except the idiots who had a campfire and left glass beer bottles and a cardboard Bud Light box next to the fire sight.)
Both places are hidden Silver Valley treasures I'm sure you would enjoy.
