Hundreds of abandoned mine sites exist on public lands in Idaho. While the majority pose only minor safety or health hazards, all are closed to every form of access. Become familiar with safety recommendations, especially if you enjoy trekking in remote areas.
Closed to all motorized vehicles and human entry starting December 9, 2013, due to flooding and hazardous river conditions. The BLM will open the access to the public once the water level recedes and conditions improve. For more information, please contact BLM Salmon Field Manager Linda Price, 208-756-5410.
