Great little loop. Trail is a bit bumpy on the lower east side near the creek and becomes an absolute bike path once up on the bench to the west.

pretty slimy still, first 1.5 is pretty solid but then it's a foot game to stay out of mud and snow

A great little hike for the family. even the pre elementary school crowd loved it - provided we could stop picking up rocks long enough to walk . There is still a bit of mud on one section so bring your wellies.

Super muddy right now but still a beautiful hike. A lot of the trail is iced over too so I would recommend you bring your yaktrax.

This map does not show all routes available. As seen here I took my own path. Although not marked very clear path.

HIt the trail about 8 am, a little overcast on a Tuesday. Not crowded when I left, but full parking lot when I returned. Went to bridge 11, then took Cross Cut and Burrito trails down. Super fun downhill, pretty uphill.

Love this trail hiked it a few times now. First time with my 4yo walking it. We went nice and slow great beginner trail and love how many options there are. This particular “loop” is starting at Grant St. Parking lot and going to bridge #10 (don’t need to cross it) then follow bench trail down (or vice versa). There’s an outhouse, when we went there wasn’t TP.

This is a great 1 hour hike. I love that it offers two different sceneries in one- very beautiful! I recommend this hike to anyone looking for an easy, enjoyable time.

The ending of the loop comes down Bench trail which is more geared towards bikes, so the bike trails are a little confusing. No matter what, they will take you back and you'll be able to see where you need to turn back down to the creek

I absolutely love this trail. I use it all the time with my family and our dog. It’s the perfect place for biking or hiking. There are trailheads for flatter, easier hikes or steeper, uphill climbs for a great view of Pocatello and the mountains!

Very pretty scenery. Not super wide trails so hard to get out of the way of bikers or to let others pass.

I would backtrack down City Creek trail rather than Bench. Bench trail is narrow and was harder to hike on. It was a good starter hike with my 3 year old though.
