The Pebble Creek Wilderness is a diverse mountain and forest recreation area. A favorite with the locals, people tent camp, rv camp, four-wheel and hike in this beautiful public setting. There is also a natural spring at the west end called “Big Springs”. From Lava Hot Springs, it takes about twenty minutes to reach the dirt road trail head.
Here’s how you get there:
From Lava Hot Springs, turn east on Hwy 30 heading toward Soda Springs. But watch out! You will make an immediate left turn (going northward) onto Blaser HWY.
*Note: On some GPS systems Blaser Road is called “Old HWY 30”.
You will pass three sportsman access areas (for fishing) before you see a sign on your right that says “Big Springs”.
Turn left off Blaser Road onto Pebble Creek Road when you see the “Big Springs” sign. You will cross over the train tracks and over the Portneuf River. Pebble Creek Road is also known as 740.
In a half mile you will come to T junction. Stay left onto Caribou National Forest Road 36.
Ride Caribou NF Rd 36 on into the Pebble Creek Wilderness Area! Explore and have fun!
Here is a link to the “Pebble Guard Station” cabin that can be rented. It is located 6 miles into the Pebble Creek Wilderness area.
