Coyotes reported on trail June 2018. Be careful with your dogs. Fish and wildlife think there is a den there with pups. When gown, probably less of a problem.

I love this trail!!! Beautiful, and challenging!

Crestline is one of my favorite loops, which I recently realized joins with the riparian trail that leads up into the Upper Hull's Gulch area. It's a beautiful hike, just bring plenty of water in the summer and watch out for cyclists!

brutal trail if you go all the way in & out. bring plenty of water. avoid in 95°+ heat.

Good overall hike but not really a great area for birding. Very few varieties and appearances on the day I was there. This trail seems better for mountain biking than hiking and that's mostly what you'll see. It is a good length and relatively pretty if you like desert scenery. There is a very small forested area at the beginning. The challenge level is probably near easy but with a route long enough to deter small children. The inclines are very mild compared to other moderate rated desert trails like Harrison Hollows.

This seemed less scenic and more of a workout trail. It was fine but not as interesting as other trails in the area.

Great trail system with access from several different starting points. Highly recommend. Good for all ability levels, depending on your choices of course.

Best trail for dog lovers! The Military Reserve has an off leash dog park and most trails are off leash. Enjoy the wildflowers in April & May!

One of the must do trails in the Boise Foothills, Sidewinder is a nice climb, great view, and a fun downhill. A bit crowded on weekends.
