You're probably talking about Devil's Corral. Just north of the Perrine Bridge, there's the stoplight. Look to the right and you'll see a dirt road. All that area to the east is popular with dirt bikers, atv riders, and gives you access to Devil's corral.

You might be thinking of Rock Creek Canyon.

At Hansen Idaho, go due south and it'll take you up to Magic Mtn. ski area and gives you access to the South Hills. However, you'd probably need to wait a few months for things to dry out up there. While there's a lot of country to explore up there, you won't find any real jeep challenges. Lots of great atv and dirt bike riding though!!

Great info guys, thanks a bunch!

Where is the best place to find trail maps, or even a decent forest service road map? I certainly don't need heavy-duty wheeling every weekend, I'm just as happy cruising dirt roads and taking in some scenery. Any day in the hills is better than a day at work!!

The Forest and BLM headquarters are on the east end of Twin on Kimberly Road. Both have color maps of the area for a price. The forest service has a "Travel Plan" map that shows what roads and trails are open for motorized usage. They don't charge for them (as far as I know).......
