Hi - do you have horses or are you looking for a guide? The herd near Challis can sometimes be seen from the highway - but at a distance. You may want to check with either the BLM or forest service for additional advice.
Hi Thanks for commenting! No, I don't have my own horse. I was thinking if I could get a guided horseback ride, it would take me off the roads and be more likely to see them.
You may want to try Elkhorn Stables in the Mackay area for a horseback guide. Mackay has two hotels, The Wagon Wheel and The Bear Bottom Inn. Challis has lodging available as well - Challis Hot Springs B&B might be fun - they have non sulfur pools and it is nice to swim there in the mornings while it is still cool - nothing fancy at any of the above places, but clean and nice staff. Good luck.
Thanks so much for your help!!!
I understand that as well however he did say the Challis herd and unless there is a herd also named Challis in the Homedale and Silver City area - which there may be - I thought he might have been confused. Regardless - there is a herd between Challis and Mackay that can be seen from the highway at times or with the help of a guide.
and above salmon , is the 100 acre b and b...fabulous place and you can hit the hot springs that are nearby.
