Beautiful in May!!!

My family loves this short hike, and has done it many times. It’s easiest to do clockwise. Trail is hard to find in some spots, but nothing that would get you lost. We have taken horses too. Worth giving a try if in the area.

Excellent trails for hiking along the creek. It's really well maintained by officials and citizens alike and very clean. I didn't see a single bit of trash the entire time. The bridges are amazing and very nice. Pocatello is a gem for things like this and it's nice to explore a trail so nicely put together.

Beautiful trail. Especially in the fall with the leaves changing colors. First section on the city creek trail really awesome colors. The upper portion, the loop, has good views of Pocatello.

Lots of runners on lower trail, and a handful of MTB on upper. BTW would recommend for xcountry riding.

Great workout!

Nice and easy hike

This was a great trail! There was a lot of uphill climbing that could be difficult for some. The first part of the hike is shaded with lots of little creeks running along the trail. We didn't finish the hike because we ran out of water so I would suggest bringing lots with you. There are lots of wild flowers and great views! It often looked like a scene taken from the sound of music. we had both a dog on a leash and kids with us and they did great. There were a lot of bikers and four wheelers so you need to be carful for those. Also, the road to the trail is a long, narrow, dirt path. If you have a lower car I would not suggest driving on it. we were in a van and we're fine but we had to pass many rvs and it was very scary to do with the narrow roads.

Pretty scenic!
Great for different modes of hiking.

Nice trail. Turned around from bad weather coming in. The little pond was a great place to stop and have a snack

We were looking for Elkhorn Peak - didn't find it. (Not the first time anyway!!).

Really great views and , loved the shade of the trees in the morning part of the hike! Wasn't huge on sharing the trail with a lot of 4 wheelers, atvs, and motor cross bikes because of the noise and dust but overall we enjoyed it. We were able to do it with two young kids and a dog. Definitely a family friendly one!

I've been coming here since I was little so I may be a bit biased, but this place is gorgeous. Aside from the beautiful and plentiful hiking/biking trails, there's camping and picnic areas plus a gorgeous scenic overlook.

My wife and I hiked about 4.5 miles each way on this trail, so not to the top of Scout Mountain, but far enough to enjoy some amazing scenery and views. The trail is in quite good condition in most areas. It's a bit rocky for hiking in some spots, but they are passable, and few and far between. We enjoyed it enough to want to hike it again this summer, but this time to the top!

Beautiful hike, although VERY uphill in parts. Quite enjoyable though.

Fun trail. I would rate it more as moderate.

I took this trail all the way up to the top of scout mountain. 7.3 miles one way. the first 4 miles out are awesome woods, then the last 2 miles or so are up a gravel road; great panoramic vistas though.

A different twist on this trail, I started at the crestline trail head located just east of the listed start point at an elevation of 5840ft. It is a moderate hike with the steepest portion near the end of the 3 mile hike up. You will come across a fork stay to the left and you will end up on top of Scout Mtn. It is open to hikers,horses and mountain bikes, and is an out and back.

I've hiked Scout Mt for years now. And I have to say that Justice Peak is awesome! I love hiking it during the fall, the colors are breath taking. If you start at Justice Peak you will eventually come across a fork in the trail, you can either choose left which will take you to the summit of Scout "its rocky but safe for experienced climber's" or if you take the right side of the trail which will connect you to the Halve House Trail, which you can follow until you eventually hit the road.
