Cross Country Ski, Hike, Horseback, and Rock Climb

Garden Creek Gap is the defile Garden Creek cuts through as it flows toward Marsh Creek on the east side of the Bannock Range after draining a sizable chunk of territory on the west side of those mountains. Climbing nerd type people may have noticed it off to the west while traveling I-15 south of Pocatello. In the gap the stream has cut into a resistant layer of quartzite and thus exposed some rock climbing. If you do not rock climb but like to scramble, this has the best class 3, 3+ and 4 scrambling near Pocatello.
