Easy trail. Great solo hike. Lots of scenic views.

Great hike! Pretty views, well marked, short but has some uphills :)

Nice hiking trail. A few inches of snow on the ground on thanksgiving day. A couple of trees are down and are obstructing the trail (consequence of the high winds that we had during the week). No major issue though. About 4 hours of hiking, 11.1 miles.

Did this late November when there was plenty of snow on the trail and half of the river was frozen that you could literally walk on it. The trail is not hard to find as its not hidden behind trees/ bushes and its right by the side where you are required to brush your shoes. There's a camp spot after 2miles and thats where I spent a night, beautiful by the river side. Hiked further to find another spot after 3.7mile which is relatively small with no tree shade. There's another camp spot at the 5.3mile where the sunset creek meets crooked river. Will try that after winter.

The trail runs across private property which is now closed due to mining. You can drive around behind the hill and come part way up behind the old mine site. There are remains of an old mill that are accessible without violating the posted area. Access to the old mine site is also prohibited from the back (north) as well

Planned a trip to Seattle from Utah and mapped this as one of our quick stops en route to our final destination. It was awesome! Only a handful of people were there. I didn’t plan on getting on the water, but I ended up on it. It was great! My only advice is take some water or electrolyte drinks to keep you hydrated. The rocks are slippery as well just a heads up.

11/20/19 Awesome trail, incredible views, no snow quite yet.

Came here on November 18th, 2019 to the paved parking lot with the bathroom and it was closed off with a gate. I drove down to the "trail crossing" sign just a bit down the hill and parked there. DO NOT GO UP THE HILL IN THE PARKING LOT! This will just lead you a mile back to the parking lot that is blocked off. go across the street and start! Also, when you get to the first fork in the road, follow the signs toward the right to "Stack Rock Trail". Then there is another fork and both ways say "Stack Rock Trail". You can go down either, as it is a loop. I chose to go up to the left and it is a little rough but then there is a sign for stack rock at the top. Then I went down the other side and it was real pretty. I clocked in at almost 12 miles but I also went a mile and back in the wrong direction lol. Should be about 10 miles. 4 stars only because the map didn't take me to the right spot and I was sad I couldn't start and park in the correct spot (probably based on time of year). otherwise, great and amazing hike!

The trail on the app is different than the signs

Did the complete loop, it was just under 14 miles. I did the loop counter clockwise or going up shingle and coming down dry creek. Started hiking about 12:30. The first 4-5 miles was warmer than expected as there is no shade. You hit the tree line around mile 4.5 to 5. At about mile 7 you top out. The views are beautiful just before the half way point as you get a great view of the valley. There are plenty of water crossing with various logs and sticks to walk over. Just make sure you bring your water proof boots.

Fantastic hike. Great views all the way around the mountain. Can extend the trail or shorten it if you desire.

Nice, easy trail on the way down. Bit more intense on the way back up. Good way to connect Shafer Butte and Mores Mountain trail.

Absolutely loved this trail. There was a bit of snow towards the top in the shaded portions but the rest was still pretty clear.

Great trail to do for a day of hiking. It took me about 4 1/2 hours with a couple stops. The ups are tough but absolutely worth it. The shaded side of the trail is starting to get a bit icy in some parts but still easy enough to cross the water. This trail has all the views and types of vegetation. Great for dogs too as there’s plenty of drinking water available.

Great hike for a crisp fall day. The first mile is easy, the second mile is the one that takes your breath. The reward is seeing the old mine and outbuildings.

I managed to get there in the middle of their first winter storm. I wanted to hike to Snowbank peak but considering I could barely see, my buddy said no and we just went to the alle instead. still pretty and after trudging through the 1 foot of snow, I felt invincible! this felt like I got christened into a real hiker

It's mostly a road but I still hiked it. didn't last as ling as I thought it would but it was still fun!

By far my favorite trail! it's close to Boise and it's a rewarding view at the top. this is the one that convinced me to taking hiking as a regular hobby!

This trail is too great, I am a pretty avid backpacker, I am 13 years old and usually go by myself or with my dog. I obviously love this hobby, so when the time came when my friend became interested in this hobby I had to make it the best experience ever. We hiked 6 miles the first day, not to hard for a beginner, we camped out overnight, it was extremely to easy find a nice campsite. Views were beautiful, water was crystal clear and the hike was fun. Overall I couldn’t recommend this trail more for beginners or weekend backpacking. In fact I actually plan on coming back with more friends this summer.

Good trail. Hiked with kids 12-9&7yo without any issue. Trees/ forest. A bit overgrown. Private road owned by Grossman family who “allows the access” for hikers&bikers. Had a light snow shower and very breezy conditions. Will possibly do it again. Might be nice during summer months. Not exceptional but a good exercise for the family, not too far from the city.

Beautiful trail. I ran into two bears on the way back early in the morning and they just ran off. Pretty cold but overall a very enjoyable trail. I didn’t see any trash or garbage or anything just a lot of trees and flowers.
