Cress Creek Nature Trail is maintained by the BLM. This is a gentle hike that provides a good view of the South Fork of the Snake River during the summer and awesome color in the fall.

Took our family to Cress Creek yesterday for a late day hike. This has always been a fun place to go for a quick hike that is close to home. We were a little disappointed to see how run down the area was. The garbage can was overflowing with trash. The bathrooms were filthy and also full of trash. As we walked up the first section of trail that is concrete there were several areas that had been recently vandalized. In addition to the vandalism there was evidence of foot traffic off the trail in areas clearly marked as off limits. Pretty sad to see the current state of the trail. We still had a good time and things were much better farther up the trail.

Nice enjoyable hike. My wife and I only did the little wheelchair accessible part, but we had fun and plan to go back. The views are so-so, but apparently there's a snake river overlook further in that promises to be beautiful.
