We started at 5am. I wouldn’t start any later in the summer because it’s exposed. It was a nice wide trail. Well marked. Wish the loop continued in the foothills and didn’t hit the street at the end but regardless it was a well marked, well maintained, and well traveled trail. Boise State has a bird research area at the top and we enjoyed learning about their program and releasing birds after they were banded. It was a great hike. Bring lots of water. Start early.

Good trail. Would definitely advise going very early because almost all of it is not covered. Also, very challenging. Lots of incline. Gorgeous views.

what a beautiful day to hike Lucky Peak. Sunny as we started, climbed thru the clouds, ended on top cloud covered and 20 degrees cooler. truly enjoyed the trail.

The trailhead is at the end of Council Springs Road. About three minutes from the coordinates given here! The road ends with a gate at the end.

We followed the directions to the trail head but there was no parking there. You basically had live in the neighborhood in order to hike the trail.

Strenuous, but worth it! Very neat to observe the changes in the ecosystem as you gain elevation. It was cloudy up top and we couldn't see more than 20ft, but I imagine the views are spectacular on a clear day. The descent offers pretty great views of the reservoir.

Really close to Boise and very beautiful. I saw a cool photo on 500px that made it look awesome so I went and checked it out during sunset. Very cool spot. I'd love to do the rest of the trail. We only traveled about a mile or two because it got too dark to continue.
