"GOING TO MALTA, IDAHO from Declo, Idaho USA" Malta by Silverfeather

Malta Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

Surrounding Malta, Idaho area...

Idaho State Highway 81 traveling east out of Declo, Idaho, winds around this small Mountain range, in which is called "The Cottrel Mountain." Years ago this Mountain was referred to as "Horse Butte." One local resident has nick-named it "Indian Ridge," which over-looks a beautiful valley of sage-brush & Agriculture land. One has to travel around this Mountain to get to the small Farming Community of Malta, Idaho. Much Wildlife inhabits this Mountain range, & it is a spectacular sight to be atop the ridge, as one can see for miles upon the valley floors below.... also a good view of the Interstate that heads towards Salt Lake City, Utah. The ridge is a famous place for Hunters, Horse-back riders, 4-wheelers, & dirt-bikes... even "Sunday-drivers," except the terrain is "rough," & one definitely needs a good 4 X 4 vehicle!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wide-open spaces, much Agriculture and Cattle Ranches...
  • Cons:Most definitely a "one-Horse Town!"
  • In a nutshell:Don't "blink" when you go by, & make sure you have lots of extra "ice" in your Cooler & plenty to drink!
