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!

@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

It’s nice trail, not too long, not too short, and easy to follow. The middle part of trail has small elevation which is perfect to combine hiking and running. If you go back the same way in, it will be around 8 miles total, but if you decide to take different path back as a loop, then it will be 11 miles and up, there are many paths ranched out from this trail.

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

this trail was pretty fun, we originally started from the parking lot next to the tennis court in Avamor, an went through twisted Springs i think.
our 7 year old son, went with us, an he was such a trooper. pretty tough for him, an we had to walk a lot, but after coming to the turn to go up hill near the cattle grave yard it was up hill an the last 20 min, was practically all steep down hill grade on Burnt car. we would do it again as a family, now that my son has the confidence to conquer this trail.

Half day hike that consists of service roads & clean trails. Great mountain biking trails also.

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.

Excellent hike and great scenery. The trail is well kept, well marked, and clean. The mountain bikers seemed to follow the yield rules so that was nice. Great bit of exercise up in the hills.

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.

Great trails with a few wooden bridges and step over barriers to keep the motorized vehicles off the trail. Beautiful scenery and a lot of the trail is under trees. Sharing the trail with bicycles and hikers but most were courteous.

Beautiful scenery the entire trail...fall colors beginning to appear. Mostly shaded as you wind through the tall trees. Nice variety of elevation change! One long rather relentless uphill stretch close to the top, but the views make it all worthwhile! The last bit up toward the road on the way out is all uphill...I really felt it after 7 miles! Trail is easy to see, well marked. My whippet loved it, too.

Nice little hike.

Beautiful. Amazing. Friendly people on the trail. We loved it and plan on doing it again. Bring a sandwich and have a picnic with your friends and loved ones when you reach stack rock

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.

We went too late in the day, in August, and it was HOT. It's a pretty exposed trail as well. Kind of steep near the end, but it's fun.

Pretty awesome trail.

Great trail, mostly in the trees.

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.

Nice hike! Not too tough but totally exhausted my dog, so that's awesome!

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!

Woke up and wanted to get out, so I tried this trail. The trail is very well made after and tended. Scenic views of the valley.

good hike, the trail is narrow so watch for bikers before going around corners.

gorgeous hike!

This was a beautiful loop, even in the middle of the summer. The creeks were dried up but still plenty to see. He cautious of the multitudes of bikes on the trail. But those we encountered were very friendly. There are a bunch of forks in the trail that give a lot of options, Bob's Trail was our favorite part of the loop, I recommend leaving this trail for the end of the hike for the surprise of beauty!

Great family hike, took the 2 mile loop which has a lot of pretty flowers and views. Good to be out of the smoke and heat of Boise. It started to get hot on the back trail without a lot of trees.

Awesome trail!!!
