Fun, short loop with great views! At the top near the houses, the route is a little weird because there are multiple trails leading to same place, but as long as you head downhill and towards Quarry View Park, you'll be fine.

Trail was terminated by barriers in a couple spots, and never saw the signs for "Eagle Rock Trail." No shade, good views of downtown though. Done it once now, won't bother doing it again.

This was a perfect first hike for my not-so-outdoorsy kids, a good introduction to what hiking can be. The trail was in great shape, not nearly as crowded as Tablerock seems to be. We did the climbing portion to the right first and then had a nice leisurely walk back to the trailhead. The views are beautiful, we will do this trail again, for sure!

It’s a pretty neat little loop- you are essentially walking to the top of a giant hill and then making your way back down. We went in December for some brief road trip relief. It was a little muddy bc of the melting snow but was very enjoyable. I felt a little like the grinch overlooking Whoville because the hill overlooks the surrounding snow covered neighborhoods, which are adorable to drive through.

Caution!! Not as “Easy” as they rate. Good trail for hiking bad trail for biking. Huge boulders.

The trail has a different name if you’re following the map. There is no shade for people and relatives boring. I think might be better off just doing the table rock hike. I’ll try again in the spring and fall.

Excellent loop around the foothills area. It was a bit muddy today when we went, after some rain the night before, and some trails were closed to reduce erosion. There are countless other trails in this area to help keep things fresh. Don't forget to bring the pup along for this one! There's even a few controlled off-leash areas.

easy hike and it is a lot faster than doing the Table Rock each time a nice change

So the location marker for this is totally wrong. Instead, go to 2421 E Old Penitentiary, Boise, ID 83712. The hike itself is very very short, amd not very challenging. Takes 15 min to get to Castle Rock from the parking lot, if you are going slow. There are others trails in the area though, so its worth out if you decide to do some additional walking.

Easy hike, sneakers and shorts sufficient with water if going during the day. lots of turns to let you adjust distance. connects with table rock but currently avoiding due to recent fires.
