In 1876, Alvah Challis founded the town which served as a main supply depot for the ranches and mining camps. Nowadays, the quaint town is ideal for all types of recreation including hunting, off-highway trail riding, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rockhounding, wildlife viewing, mountaineering, and river rafting. Challis is also known for the abundance of wildlife including many long-horn sheep, which can be spotted grazing in the grassy areas below the rocky cliffs that dot the landscape. 

Ride IdahoEach August Challis plays host to a migration of music lovers. Big name acts, old musical friends, families and fans make the Braun Brother's Reunion a celebration for all to enjoy.
