Updated Access

From Boise, take ID-21 toward Idaho City and Lowman. Just before Mile Point 57, take the Middle Fork Boise River Road/FS-268 east for 38.0 miles. Turn left onto FS-327 and go 5.0 miles to the Horse Heaven/Swanholm trailhead. Hike FST-050 for 4.0 miles. Please note that this area has burned in spots and, in 2013, a lot of the trail signs were missing. Make sure you have a good map when heading to the trailhead.
