Tower Creek Pyramids Day Use Area

geocache emblemThis site was homesteaded some years after the Lewis & Clark Expedition visited in 1805 and was donated back to the BLM in 2002.  A picnic/day-use area in the homestead's old apple orchard lies within view of the geologic formations that William Clark phonetically noted in his journal as "pirimids."

The BLM manages the 3-acre site to preserve the unique historic and geologic characteristics and maintain an undeveloped feel.

Located on the banks of Tower Creek: head north out of Salmon on Highway 93 approximately 10 miles, then turn right (east) onto Tower Creek Road - find the site about 2 miles up the canyon.
