On the benches and mountains surrounding Pocatello and the Portneuf Valley are thousands of acres of Public Land. The Portneuf River runs through Pocatello with beautiful stretches for floating above and below the city.
City Creek Management Area Trail System
The City Creek Management Area (CCMA) is owned by the City of Pocatello and contains an extensive network of trails for a wide variety of users. It is a valuable recreation resource for the community. As the trail network has become more popular and heavily used, it has become apparent that more formal management of the CCMA is necessary to both curtail environmental damage to the watershed from recreational use to and minimize trail user conflicts.
The 2009 City Creek Management Area plan is a 48-page document with chapters covering water quality, trail network, management and maintenance, and desired outcomes, objectives, and action items.
