The main systems include the Lake Creek trails, Billy's Bridge, North Fork Loop, the Harriman Trail, Prairie Creek Loop, and the Galena Lodge Trails. The North Valley Trails are mostly located in the beautiful Sawtooth National Recreation Area.

Over Galena pass, one can find the Alturas and Park Creek trails. Alturas Lake is supported by BCRD and offered by Sawtooth Ski Club.
