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

Fun hike, good workout but not too difficult

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Great hike in the mountains.

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.

gorgeous hike!

Just wrapped up that hike. Definitely feels like alpine but there’s quite a bit of road construction going on. Needs better signage. Rustic ski resort in every sense of the word.

Nice trail but was not as shaded as I hoped. Most of the way down was wide ski runs which felt more like road. Enjoyed it to become familiar with Bogus but not my favorite hike. Bring lots of water if hiking during the day.

beautiful views, lots of wildflowers! I started at dawn and managed to beat the heat and the crowd. I’d recommend going clockwise around the trail so that you end in the shade. all in all, a really great hike!

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.

Loved this trail! Lots of wildflowers along the way and well marked. Parts of the trail are in full sun, however, the majority of the trail was shaded with trees - perfect when hiking in the hot summer for 8 miles :)

Great views on this hike with pretty easy incline/decline. (Much less than hiking Table Rock). Lots of trail options so the advice on grabbing a trail map was perfect! The first bit had quite a few Mt Bikers but everyone was respectful and shared the trails well! It took us about 3 hours to complete, we are normally fairly slow hikers :)

Nice trail and one of the few close to Boise that allows you to get up into the trees for the whole hike. We went on a Saturday in late June and there was very heavy traffic. Beware of mountain bicyclists. Most are cautious and courteous, but there are lots of blind turns in the forest and occasionally they get moving too fast.

Beautiful!

This trail was fantastic, but for a couple of chubby old ladies, it really kicked our butts. We're definitely coming back to do it again though! VERY beautiful!

Great trail, well marked, moderate/heavy traffic on weekends, well behaved dogs are accepted/allowed off leash. Not really a loop, definitely an out and back. Plan for some time spent exploring and climbing Stack rock and the surrounding formations!

Nice! Keep following trail to Freddie’s Stacked rock as there’s some side trails. Easy hike. If I can do it, so can you.

Absolutely gorgeous trail. Went really early and there was no one on the hike up and then started to pass people on our way back. Beautiful views and the trail was easy to follow. Definitely doing it again.
