For the intrepid birders, walk the trails in the summer’s early morning to watch the young family groups of our local nesting birds. Find a trail map here and follow the colored poles! The perfect starting place is behind the Crowbar Cafe & Saloon.

World-class birding is right out your door or tent! You’ll find this short trail across from the Shoshone RV Park & Campground next to the warm springs swimming pool.
A short walk from the Crowbar Cafe & Saloon, Dublin Gulch is the former home to miners willing to literally carve out a home for themselves! Come see these unique dwellings and get a feel of the rugged life of the miners whose lives helped shape this region.
