Environmental Reclamation project for the Idaho State Parks & Recreation Dahle Construction, Idaho Environmental Reclamation Contractors, used years of experience in Mine Reclamation to reclaim approximately 20 acres of the Bayhorse Mine and Bayhorse Ghost Town. Dahle Construction contracted to alleviate unsafe conditions from Bayhorse Mining activities. We gathered and capped mine tailings, installed an asphalt paved parking lot, excavated and graded approximately 2 miles of ATV trails, safe pathways, installed 3 bridges, and set in place erosion control.

This Idaho Environmental Reclamation project reclaiming the Bayhorse Mine working in difficult terrain is our specialty. Bayhorse is tucked in a narrow, rocky canyon with steep slopes and surrounded by trees. Our late model equipment and experienced work force allowed us to complete this project for the Idaho State Parks & Recreation department with beautiful results.
Visitors can now visit the Bayhorse Mine Site, part of the 1880’s era Bayhorse Ghost Town from May 28 through October 15. The ATV Trails are open year round. Bayhorse is a unit of the Yankee Fork State Park. Turned approximately 20 acres into the Bayhorse Ghost Town and Trail System which is part of the Land of the Yankee Fork State Park.
Bayhorse is located 2 miles south of Challis on Hwy 93, turn left on Hwy 75 and travel 8 miles, turn right on Bayhorse Road and go 3.6 miles to the Bayhorse Town Site. This park is open 7 days a week to the public from May 28 through October 15. Dahle Construction is proud to be part of the Bayhorse Reclaimed Mine Site for public enjoyment. Mining heritage
