Pleasant walk, a little bit muddy at this time but not too bad. Took my 3 year old and she walked the whole way with me.

Great day for a hike. Wonderful weather, the trail was muddy and slippery most of the time. Saw several mule deer also.

HikingGreat!No shade

Nice trail with great views of the Treasure Valley. This is not part of the Dry Creek Trail. I've suggested an edit to the correct name, which is Seaman's Gulch - Valley View Loop, as per the Ridge to Rivers system map and markers.

Nice short trail with some good views. Saw lots of dogs. Seems like a great trail for running.

Not a bad trail. Has some nice ups and downs for running. I prefer some of the other foothill singletracks that have some better views - this one gives you views of a water well // parking lots // road versus some of the others in town giving more vistas. It got the job done and was well marked!

HikingNo shade

Easy trail close enough to town, but far enough away to still feel like a getaway. Only drawback is there’s not a ton of shade, so early morning or near dusk hikes are best. But the paths are well marked and traveled and the views are pretty great for not much effort.

HikingNo shade

Great trail! Really kid friendly. I took my 8 week old in a baby wrap and my 3 year old on this. There was a section that had a bit of a drop off on the side, so I held my 3 yo hand for that part, but other than that he walked it by himself. There isn’t much shade, so I suggest going early in the morning or later evening when it’s cooler out. There are a lot of people, bikers and dogs on this trail, but we didn’t mind.

Took my 4 year old on his first hike here! Had a lot of fun trying to catch grasshoppers, definitely a busy trail! It would have been 5 stars but people do not clean up after their pets out here... really a shame. Even found a doggy bag full of poo on top of one of the trail markers..
