Trail Description

This is a super easy and accessible trail, with the trailhead located about 10 minutes from downtown Boise.

There is abundant water on this hike and it’s possible to keep weight to a minimum.

The high point happens before you get halfway, so you end up going downhill for more than half the trail.

It’s scenic most of the way, opening up towards the end of the hike and revealing Boise below in the distance.
