Great short hike! My family and so have done this hike a few times. Views of mountains and downtown . Stairs are steep, but the views are worth it in the end!

Always a good up and down and almost all bike free. Can also be turned into 2 1/2-5 mile hike by following through to nature center trails.

One of my favorite causal hikes. There are many trails nearby this trail but they are very clearly labeled so it’s easy to stay on trail. It’s not a super long hike and fairly easy to do. Really dog friendly and can be hot during certain times of the day because there isn’t many trees to give you shade. I recommend this hike to anyone who wants a good view of camels back park and downtown Boise!

Location is easy to park and unload the Mt. Bike This is no Moab Poison Spider However it's a fantastic cardio with when you need it!! Eagle Bike Park is not to far away for the RedBull synergy!!

Great trail, I wandered off into a few different places but I’ll definitely be taking it again. It’s great because it leads into so many others alllll the way up to Boise national forest!

Great little day hike with our dog. There were a few decent inclines. Nice that there were several different levels of routes that you could take.

The hike up the camels hump is the best part, and I look forward to it every time! There is a complicated trail system once you reach the top. If you venture far enough into the trails, you eventually end up in the Hulls Gulch reserve parking lot, and can connect to loops in there if you want to make for a longer day hike. Overall, classic Boise sagebrush and grass scenery with some fun creeks and red cliffs (here and there) along the way.

this is a great basic trail. i even was able to jog parts and im not a runner. i partially did it bc i felt like there was less chance id be stung by something flying in all the bushes around my legs. this is one ill repeat for sure. reminds me of a trail i used to run in san diego.

Great view of the valley. Easy hike, kid-friendly, dog-friendly. The park below has restrooms, a playground, a sand volleyball net, and tennis court.

First time doing these trials. I want to come back because there are so many paths to choose from. The top has a beautiful view of the valley. Other than that a little muddy in spots and pretty exposed but I’ll definitely be coming here again!
