Idaho worst in country for working mothers . . . two more gubernatorial candidates sound off . . . and bicycling in Boise . . .

Sawtooth National Recreation Area officials are planning a 4.5-mile bike trail to connect the city of Stanley to Redfish Lake.

The Times-News reports that as soon as 2018 work could begin on the new trail, which would connect Stanley's Pioneer Park to the popular lake.

Planning for the new trail began in 2013 after the recreation area purchased a trail easement through a private ranch in the north third of the proposed trail route.
