Read in the Bogus Basin Summer Activities and Trails pamphlet that MTBProject.com ranked this trail as #1 in Idaho and one of the top 40 in the nation, so I figured I’d try it out. Number 1 it is. I hike and bike trails in Boise all the time and this was by miles the best one yet. Beautiful single track for bikers and hikers. The views are those that photographers dream of. The trail itself is very well maintained. And as it says, this is a moderate trail. There’s some easy parts and some where it gets kinda technical. The climbs are excellent, not too easy but not too difficult. There’s some downhill and Bogus even threw in about a dozen berms to add more fun to the experience. The drain off from the snow flows onto the trail, but the people at Bogus are so damn smart, they decided to make rock bridges so the trail doesn’t get eroded and keeps it looking natural. Near the end when you come up to Pioneer Lodge, you can stay on this trail or go onto another. I went onto another trail which was an experience in and of itself.

If I could give 10 stars, I would do it in a heartbeat!! Great ride today. Looking forward to my next ride on this trail

These directions only lead you to Bogus itself. I drove and walked all around and could see no signs or markings for the trail; and no one around to ask about it. I ended up going to Entrance Exam about 3 miles before Bogus and had a good time.
