I absolutely loved this trail! it was gorgeous the whole way and not too steep. Still a good work out with a steady incline! I was afraid there would be snakes because of the tall grass, but I didn't see any.

Great trail with beautiful views of Boise and the Treasure Valley. Nice combination of flats and ascents.

This trail was a combination of beautiful of views and good steady incline for a solid work out. I will definitely hike this again!

Great hike!

Very easy trail to enjoy in the early morning to watch the sunrise

Excellent hike, very few people on the trail. Single track trail, but this is ped only (no bikes). Views were great, cool boulder piles, trickle of water in the creek below. Perfect weather in late October.

Beautiful autumnal colors! The stream isn't there now, but a small waterfall emerges from the boulders at the top of the loop. GPS took me to the 8th street parking...look for signs saying Hulls Gulch National Recreation Trail.. it's a footpath only (#0). Easy inclines, especially if you do the loop counter clockwise (go to the right). Not much shade so bring lots of water, especially for the doggies (no stream right now)... Trail is marked well, maintained well. Sometimes you'll hear the ATVs on the nearby trail (bummer) but only toward the top.

beautiful run!

Loved the beautiful autumn colors along the way... nicely groomed trail with some lovely views of the valley. No shade so wear a hat... going earlier is best. Passed several bikers but all were courteous and yielded right of way with a smile. Easy inclines... last part in view of the road was a bit boring but overall a nice hike. The whippet loved it too!

Great walk with my 8 year old daughter. Stunning views.

@stephanie- I have your glasses!!! Found them that day!!!! Let me know how you want to connect. You can find me on IG @bestyrsofmylife - DM me there!

Today, I randomly picked a local hike off my AllTrails Map and it happened to be Corrals-Bob’s Trail Loop. I loved it! Parking was easy; there’s street parking across from the trailhead (on Bogus Basin rd) for about 7 vehicles and more ways to access the Loop nearby. At first glance on the App, I thought the loop was short and easy. Upon starting the hike, I was pleasantly surprised at the distance (~8.5 miles) and elevation gain (~1,500 feet). I started at Bogus Basin Rd, went through two gates and took a right onto Highlands Trail, choosing the counter-clockwise path around the Loop. Highlands Trail zig-zagged down to a culdesac and took a sharp left onto Bob’s Trail. Bob’s Trail followed a dry creek bed and climbed all the way up to Corral’s Trail. Corral’s Trail provided great views of the treasure valley and continued up to over 4,200 ft elevation before descending back and around all the way to Bogus Basin Rd, passing along Jeep Trail on the way. You have to pay attention as there are several forks in the trail along the Loop. Overall I got more than I bargained for, but I’m an experienced hiker and this hike provided a good workout. The weather was Sunny, Windy, and 53 degrees; perfect for a fast hiking pace. I was hiking solo so I finished quickly in 2 hours 20 minutes. If hiking in a group and enjoying the experience, it would likely take about 4 hours. This hike would be a totally different experience if there was water flowing through the stream beds. So I’ll surely be revisiting Corrals - Bob’s Trail Loop in April. I would suggest doing this Trail in the Spring for full effect!

The trail is very well maintained and relativly easy to climb. My 4 and 6 yr old had no issues. There are some geocahes and letterboxes on the hike to make it more fun.

Lost a pair of Maui Jim women’s flexible sunglasses brown & and polarized. Lost on Sunday 10/7/2018 in the afternoon. I was hiking with my 10year & and 7 year olds I had to make frequent stops on the south side of the long trail. I went back to look for them but could not find them. I will pay a finders fee if anyone happened to find them. Please respond on this site if located.
Thank you Stephanie

Relaxing trail, especially on Mondays. Few people with friendly dogs.

This was a really nice hike. We meant to do the short loop, but went the long route by mistake. It wasn't terribly difficult either. I am new to Idaho and hikes are helping me recover from a heart attack. I struggled on a couple of the uphill parts, but overall it was not too hard and had some great views. Other hikers and mountain bikers were all very friendly. I'll be doing this one again.

Table Rock Trail is my go-to for friend & family hiking. I have a 10-year old & a 4-year old. As an adult, the later-part of this trail gets intense (slightly steeper incline). Still fine for the kids but they'll be trekking slower, & you can feel it in your thighs, butt, & lungs! At the top, enjoy an incredible view, a bench to rest on, lots of selfies, & drink fluids!!! Then the trip down is enjoyable & fairly easy, just be careful you take it slow (especially kiddos) or you might slip on the dirt & fall on your butt. Happy Trailing!

Had a good time and met some new ladies with a ladies hiking group. Mountain bikers are awful on this trail though. They don’t follow the yield rules and speed around the corners. Other than that it’s a well kept, clean trail. Not difficult, but a good bit of exercise.

This is an easily accessible trail, close to town. The climb can be intense, but the view is worth stopping for from time to time on the way up. Be sure to take plenty of water for the trip, especially in warmer weather.

Went in September, it was such a site to see. There is two ways in from bogus basin, left is a dirt road (faster) the other was a paved road. 4x4s can go left and don't recommend cars going left. App says kid friendly, my daughter who is 4 couldn't finish. If going in September bring cold weather clothes. Boise can be 90 and up there can be in the 5Os. 5 bucks to park your vehicle up there. Enjoy the amazing views to the north. Have fun

This was my first time out into the trails around Boise besides Table Rock. Loved this hike! It was shorter than I thought and might have to explore the expansion next time, but man the views at the top are unbeatable. It’s mid September so no flowers for now, but the fall colors and peaking through here and there and the weather is perfect.

The trail was beautiful but hard to find. Like another reviewer, I ended up on tempest and then Face and crossed back Elk Meadows. It worked out but I nearly took a wrong turn that would have made for a long day. It was worth seeing and doing but I know I won't go back again.

Great trail to backpack train on. I take my weight vest here to do runs. Lots of traffic on the weekends but great early morning. Beautiful city view at the top for sunset and best sunrise view from the back part of the top.

Fun hike but more of a biker trail or running.

Pretty dry out there at the moment, but still provides beautiful views once you get up higher. Some areas are very narrow and steep headed down. Only came across one bike, unfortunately on a very narrow path, but he was very kind and we all got around each other without too much trouble. Most dogs are off leash, very little shade. Definitely bring water for the pups.

parts of this hike were pretty, but we went counterclockwise around the loop and had to turn back when we hit a hill that was too steep to climb down — might have been doable if we went clockwise!

It was fun! A litter tough in some areas for the kids. I highly recommend going down and checking out the caves. There is some broken glass, but really cool otherwise.

It was a great first hike for us. There was a bit of traffic, but the views were great and the trail was well worn and easy to navigate.
