Awesome hike to do during sunrise/sunset! The peaks offer an awesome view. A lot harder than I expected but a welcome challenge.

Just went with our dog. plenty of foot traffic and a bit muddy but still a lovely walk.

Great trail with beautiful scenery. Moderate hiking.

Highly trafficked, but a nice hike.

There is a dirt lot on the right just past the marina and the trail starts across the street.
Bring hiking poles! The trail is accessible in the winter but you will want the poles for some ice patches at the top and your knees on the way down. Be ready for some thigh burning 2,000 feet straight up with little relief! Stunning views from the top of the foothills that go on forever.

Beautiful trail with great flow for trail running and beautiful reveals of big views of the treasure valley. Highly recommended!

Great view.. friendly dogs

This is a review for WINTER at Stack Rock. This is an incredibly gorgeous and very challenging hike in wintertime. Going with my dog, I was a little concerned about the thousand foot elevation change and 8-mile round trip, but luckily I had snow shoes, and my dog brought a good attitude. I crossed paths with another group of who all had poles, and I’d say we both probably struggled equally with our different equipment. The steep uphills are no treat at any point, but that last incline to the top was simply brutal. However, I got out unscathed and probably weighing quite a bit less. Gorgeous vistas and silent as could be. Worth it if you are experienced and well prepared! Probably not best for deep season, but after a couple snowfalls, it was great.

Great late fall hike. No one else on the trail on a cold, sleety day! Saw several deer just hanging out, too!!!

Great trail conditions! Beautiful views.

highly suggest not going at night. best time to start is 10:30 unless you want to hike at night

So many fellow hikers, trail runners, and bikers as expected on any trail this close to town. Some bikers need to SLOW DOWN as the only way I knew they were behind me was the sound of the bikes. Not the trails fault. Everyone else was very friendly. Very nice time.

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 hike. Plenty of hikers even in November. Good trail for running or hiking.

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.

There is no sign at parking lot, but still pretty easy to find trail up the gravel access road. I would recommend hiking boots and not tennis or running shoes due to steep, rocky, washed out trail. Great views from the top and even saw burn lines and red flame retardants from fires.

As someone else wrote, this trail should be re-routed into switchbacks for safety and to reduce erosion.

Fun hike, good workout but not too difficult

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!

Fun trail! Took my 1.5 year old in a pack for most of the trail. There are quite a few bikers but everyone I’ve ever met is kind and it’s not a big deal to share the trail. Pretty views of Boise and the foothills!

@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.
