High Valley isn’t a town; it’s just a pristine high-elevation valley that most of you have never heard of.
I discovered it by accident a few years ago when I heard about it from a friend and fellow agent who had a cabin there.
You can get to High Valley a couple of ways, but the most straightforward way is to hang a left off Highway 55 at Smiths Ferry, about 53 miles north of Eagle.
The rutted gravel road is a steep, twisty climb for a couple of miles, then you turn left at the top of the hill and make your way into the scenic valley itself.
High Valley is classic Idaho cattle ranching country with more cows than people.
