What is an easement under Idaho law?

β€œAn easement is the right to use the land of another for a specific purpose that is not inconsistent with the general use of the property by the owner.” Johnson v. Highway 101 Investments, LLC, 156 Idaho 1, 3, 319 P.3d 485, 487 (2014), reh'g denied (Mar. 10, 2014). An easement is not ownership. It is only a right to use another's land.

There are many different kinds of easements. Easements are created for driveways, roads, utilities, views, conservation, etc. Pretty much any use of land that you can think of may be allowed by an easement.
