The Silver Creek Preserve in Idaho is a nature lover's paradise. The fly fishing is legendary, of course, but the preserve offers many other outdoor activities.
With the miles of pristine streams, lush meadow lands, and bordered by mountains to the north, the area attracts eagles, hawks, various songbirds, and a variety of waterfowl, coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions, deer and elk. In addition to the diverse wildlife, there are many fragrant and brilliant wildflowers. Known best for the wild trout that call these streams their home, the area is enjoyable for anyone who does not fish as well.
The quiet meandering streams are excellent for canoeing or kayaking. You can sit on the shore and contemplate nature, do a little bird watching and/or hiking. There are interpretive displays at the Visitors Center along with additional information. You can take a self-guided nature trail, which points out the ecological point of interest.
