Beautiful easy trail that we made a loop of by coming down the road. Lots of rattlesnakes out!

Pretty enjoyable hike. Great views of the city. I completed it in under 90 minutes with my pup. Day use trail only.

Pretty trail - did the loop and had to follow 8th street road back no clear sign where the trail loop picks back up- also very gravelly until the 8th street meet up near the first split- otherwise pretty

fine trail easy/moderate hike. definitely follow on a road for some time and meet back up at the trail later on, pretty easy though. theres a chunk of the trail that's on some gravel, and my dog didnt like that, but that's on him. just something to think about of you wanna take your pooch. lots of bikers too, no water though

Pretty hike, great to take your dogs on! The only issues we encountered were having to cross a few washes, and our feet ended up pretty wet, oh well!

Super pretty hike! Unfortunately you do have to cross some washes and your feet will get wet. The path is also not marked really well, so be sure to check the trail map to make sure you’re still with it.

Fun hike but more of a biker trail or running.

This is not Shingle Creek, near Dry Creek. This is Bobs Trail and 8th Street.

A lot of mtn bike traffic. Decent climbs and views. The section along the road sucks. More of a trail for a quick run near Boise than one that is worthwhile for hiking and sightseeing.

This is a nice and quiet trail minus the occasional biker that goes flying by. You definitely want to keep your ears open and stop every now and then to make sure a biker is not coming. PAY ATTENTION to the trail on the app because this is really two different trails and a road that make up the trail. If you start on the top part of the trail on the app it will say Bob’s trail which will lead you most of the way until the top where you go on the gravel road for a little while. Everything considered it’s a good trail and workout.

Great little loop, there was still water in the creek, but it will be drying up soon.
