Great neighborhood backyard hike

Hiked this trail today with our 11 year old twins. Beautiful hike and so worth it. Pretty easy though we did have to take a couple ‘breaks’ for our child but it was lovely! Saw all ages conquering the hike! We did the longest trail we could find.

I hiked this trail for the very first time today. I am a beginner hiker so the trail was pretty decent and my 6 year old had an amazing time as well. I learned is there are different trails to take to get to the top of table rock and that was cool.

It’s got some spectacular views.

Not a particularly attractive trail going up (very open and no trees), but the view from the top is about as good as you can get in Boise.

Fun, accessible, short hike. Great views atop a lacustrine sandstone deposit!

let me add one thing: if you go during the old penitentiary museum's open hours, you can use their restrooms and cold drinking fountain.

A great urban hiking destination. You can take the #17 bus from downtown Boise all the way to the Old Penitentiary to find the trailhead. Nice varied trail. May has an incredible wildflower display! I felt like a bad a$$ until I saw the preschooler hiking back down. Haha.

Hiked this yesterday. Was difficult for me as a first hike but overall worth it. Totally amazing views and a good workout.

This is a good trail that will make you work at times. some steep stuff especially near the top. A great view of the Treasure Valley from the top. Lots of people taking their dogs for a workout but the trail is plenty wide most of the way.

Fun little hike. I used to do it all the time when I lived in Boise. Not a lot of shade in the summer though so early or lake hour recommended and lots of water with that desert heat. I posted views and am sharing my blog post because I hiked it after it burnt down a few years ago and the photos are unique! (https://www.brisul.com/blog//2016/07/table-rock-fire-in-boise.html)

Well beatin tail makes it easy in nice weather. Bring lots of water and use sunscreen, 0% shade. Remember to pack out some trash you find up there!

Great hike - pretty views. It gets challenging in the heat but doable. Would hike again especially earlier in the morning.

Great trail with scenic views of Boise! The Table Rock trail connects with the Shoshone Loop trail so you have plenty of options. Dog friendly but must be kept on leash! Expect moderate traffic but wide trails allow the traffic flow. The Wife, the doggo, and I hiked up to the cross and back down which was a great workout! Will definitely hike again!

Beautiful

Great hike...it was a good workout. There were a lot of people. I went on a 62 degree day so the weather was perfect, it’d be a much tougher hike on a hot day. Overall it was a good experience. I would imagine it’s prettier as you get into spring, everything was still pretty brown.

P.S. I didn’t find the graffiti to be much of an eyesore as mentioned by other reviewers.

Great to do with kids on a cloudy day. If it’s too sunny I could see how it would be too much for sun exposure and get sunburned. It’s a good pleasure hike with a nice view :)

I wouldn't call it a hike so much as a leg stretcher. Gravel dirt path meandering to the table. The view was pretty great, and the kids enjoyed clambering amongst the rocks, which is great if you don't mind the dangers of horrendous amount of shattered glass littering the whole underside of the table. In the end, we walked away with some decent photos.

Great for a 50 degree day, no shade, so it could be very hot in the summer. Could be very challenging, but doable, for kiddos.

Had a great time hiking. We went before the big snowfall. It’s a decent workout-gets your lungs cleared up! Great short workout before the holiday eating.

Not a bad hike. Great view of the valley. Very crowded with a lot of dogs and owners not picking up after them so watch your step. It was fun.

Fun to hike with so many others enjoying. Great View, free parking, restroom ( although stinky) at trail head.

Super easy and quick hike. And only barely a ten minute drive from downtown. So beautiful. Hands down recommend, especially for those in and out of Boise quickly for a work trip or something.

the hiking was okay. Very popular so lots of traffic. Very dirty at the top. Cigarette butts and graffiti. not worth the hike for me.

Pretty views of the city, definitely steep in some places but doable even if inexperienced. Hardest part of the hike was the heat!
